On September 8, 1957, Janice married Leslie “Les” Doerr.  The couple made their home in Norfolk.  Janice and Les became members of Grace Lutheran Church.  They were blessed with two children, Debra and Kelvin.  Janice was a devoted wife and mother who created a loving home.  She worked various positions at Back to the Bible, JC Penney’s, NECC and Wal-Mart. 

She enjoyed cooking, baking, embroidery and quilting.  She collected depression glass.  Janice appreciated her church and church family.  Her greatest joy was spending time with her family especially her two grandchildren.

Family and friends will always admire Janice for unwavering devotion and love to her husband, Les.  Janice and Les were the ideal couple who were happy, caring and faithful to God.   

She is survived by her daughter Debra Doerr and her husband, Doug Charko of Columbus, son Kelvin Doerr of Omaha, grandchildren Kelsey Doerr and Kyle Doerr, brothers-in-law Melvin (Gladys) Doerr of Omaha, Ray (Joyce) Doerr of Plainview and Tom Guernsey of Omaha and sisters-in-law Stella (Pastor Luther) Gutz of Coeur d’Alene, ID and Janiece Doerr of Sedona, AZ.

Janice was preceded in death by her parents, husband, brother Glen Ehrenberg, sister Eileen Hager, brother-in-law Milford Doerr, and sister-in-laws Ethel Guernsey and Mardella Smith.
