Please scroll down for updates

Just received this sad news from Barbara Zelenay Berry:
"My class of 1970 lost another classmate. Janis Musson Jardin to Alzheimer. She was the sister of Kathy Musson Bice. Too many gone too soon!"

Yesterday, Karla Alltizer, sister of Janis posted on Facebook:
"Today is a very sad day. Today I lost my sister Janis Jardine to Alzheimers. I was very glad to be able to see her one last time and say my goodbyes. My sister Kathy Bice and myself are very saddened to lose our sister at such a young age. We know you are dancing with the angels now sweet Janis and partying with mom and dad and our other sister Sharon. The memory of you and all the good times us four sisters had growing up will always be with us. Rest in Peace."

Praying for the family during this difficult time.

JUNE 3, 1952 ~ April 13, 2017
Janis passed away on Thursday, April 13, 2017, about seven weeks before her 65th birthday.  Many of you have seen the notice on Facebook from Karla Musson Alltizer, sister of Janis, saying that Janis passed away due to Alzheimer’s Disease.  Her illness progressed rather quickly within the past three years.  Some of our BHS ‘70 classmates don’t use Facebook, and some others who have a Facebook page rarely check it,
so this notice is being sent to everyone from our class for notification of this sad news.
Janis was the youngest of the four Musson sisters, Sharon, Karla, Kathy, and Janis.  They grew up at 1907 N. Kenneth Rd., near Eton Dr., in Burbank. 
Janis attended Thomas Jefferson Elementary, John Muir Junior High, and Burbank High, graduating with us in 1970. 
She and I were in the same 5th grade class at Jefferson with our teacher, Betty Ohs Steinkolk.  Some of the others in that class with us were
Carol Wallace, Ellen Gelbard, Joyce Starleaf, Krenn Wilkinson, Mary Pilkinton, Bill Wallace, Blyden Loutensock, Don McMickle, Mike Zeff, and Stan Shaner.
Janis married Scott Jardine in the 1970’s.  They attended our 10 year class reunion in 1980.  They have two sons, Bryan born in 1982, and his younger brother born in 1984.  Over the years Janis and Scott have lived in many locations, due to Scott’s career.  They began married life in Burbank, lived in Brea, then Oregon, back to northern California for many years, then Midland, Texas, and finally the last few years they have lived in Boise, Idaho. 
Janis always loved to play tennis frequently wherever she lived.
Janis is survived by her husband, two sons, sisters, Karla Musson Alltizer and Kathy Musson Bice (who is from the BHS ‘68 class), and their families. 
She is predeceased by her parents, and her oldest sister, Sharon.
