RALEIGH, N.C. — Janice Enolla (Crowe) Odenweller was born on Jan. 19, 1945, in Lima to Raymond and Goldie Crowe. She departed this life on Thursday in Raleigh, North Carolina, following a four-year battle with Leiomyosarcoma cancer.

Janice is survived by her three children, Brian Odenweller, Kristi (Odenweller) Blakeman and Jeff Odenweller; her four grandchildren, Tori Blakeman, Daniel Blakeman, Zack Blakeman and Zoe Blakeman; her son-in-law, Jeff Blakeman; her sister-in-law, Janice Crowe, wife of the late James Crowe; and many nieces and nephews. Janice also leaves behind a precious group of friends, who have been her angels throughout her long battle with cancer.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Raymond Crowe and Goldie Crowe; and her brothers, Jack Crowe, Gene Crowe, James Crowe and Gary Crowe.

Janice was a graduate of Lincolnview High School and worked as an aide at Primrose Retirement Community for the past 13 years. She was cherished by her co-workers and residents before retiring in the Fall 2019. Janice loved to dance, go camping, play tennis and billiards, and was a classic car fanatic. She also loved to spend time with her family and friends, playing cards and other games.

Memorials may be sent to Chiles-Laman Funeral Home, Shawnee Chapel, 1170 Shawnee Road, Lima, OH 45805.
