Janice E. Puzzo Wagner, age 67, of Wonder Lake, passed away Saturday, July 9, 2016, at her home. She was born March 24, 1949 to Frank and Genevieve (Westfall) Puzzo. On October 8, 1966, she married her high school sweetheart, Ronald Wagner Sr.
Janice was a resident of Wildwood before moving to Wonder Lake. A saved child of God, Janice lived for her Lord. She was employed as a surgical nursing assistant for physicians, first in Libertyville and later Grayslake. Always willing to help, Janice readily accepted the challenge of helping one of her physicians who relocated to Florida. She spent 6 weeks setting up a new practice there. When her mother moved to an assisted living facility, Janice wanted to spend time near her, but also soon found a way to help at the facility, volunteering first with janitorial duties, and later with activities for the residents. She also helped troubled youths, opening her home to help them through difficult times.
In her leisure time, Janice enjoyed antiques, scrapbooking, and crafts. Throughout her lifetime, she was a cat lover.
Survivors include her husband of nearly 50 years, Ronald; three children, Ronald Jr. (Rachael), Michael (Beth) and Jamie (Tina); seven grandchildren, Ashleigh, Devin, Jonathan, Becca, Matthew, Tyler, and Jacob; and two brothers, Phillip and Larry.
Janice was preceded in death by two sisters, Marion and Phyllis.
