MILLERTON — Janice M. Fenn, 72, a 39-year resident of the Village of Millerton, died unexpectedly on Wednesday, April 7, 2021, at her home in the village. 

Janice had a long career with New York State Developmental Disabilities Services Office, where she began as a development therapy aide at the Harlem Valley Psychiatric Center in Wingdale, N.Y., and ultimately retired from the Taconic Development Disabilities Services Office, Wassaic Campus, as a senior developmental aide.

Born July 14, 1948, in Beacon, N.Y., she was the daughter of the late Violet (Quirk) and Hubert “Hubie” Jackson. 

Janice was a graduate of the Lady Cliff Academy in Peekskill, N.Y. 

On June 19, 1982, at St. Luke’s Church in Beacon, she married Roland H. Fenn. 

Mr. Fenn died on Feb. 12, 2013. 

Janice was a longtime parishioner of St. Patrick’s Church in Millerton and Immaculate Conception Church in Amenia, and she belonged to the local CSEA. 

In her spare time Jan volunteered with the Millerton American Legion Post #178 Auxiliary and could often be found socializing at the Talk of the Towne Deli in Millerton or be seen walking her beloved dog, Freckles, on the sidewalks in the village. 

Janice had a sweet disposition and a kind heart. She will be deeply missed by her family and her many friends.

Janice is survived by her dear brother, Peter Jackson and his wife, Linda, of Mamaroneck, N.Y.; her loving sister, Nancie Lucariello and her husband, James, of Hopewell Junction, N.Y.; two nieces, Alexis “Lexi” Lucariello and Lindsay Jackson; her nephew, Christopher Jackson; a stepson, Milton “Mic” Fenn and his family; and several nieces and nephews and many friends. 

In addition to her parents and husband she was also predeceased by her beloved dog, Pal.

A graveside service and burial took place on Wednesday, April 14, at St. Joachim Cemetery in Beacon. Clergy from the St. Joachim Church will officiate and offer committal blessings and prayers at that time. 

Memorial donations may be made to the Millerton Legion Post #178, 155 Route 44, Millerton, NY 12546; or to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Upstate NY Chapter, 421 New Karner Road, Suite 6, Albany, NY 12205.
