Janice Marie Mcelroy

July 13, 1940 — February 13, 2023

We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of our mother, Janice Marie McElroy on February 13, 2023. She leaves behind her seven children, Max McElroy (Teri), Chris Ballard Justice, Bob McElroy (Lorrie), Cathi Deierling (Gary), Cindy Joneson (Tracy), Charlene Siepker, Tom McElroy (Amanda), 21 grandchildren, 24 great grandchildren, her brothers Robert Walker (Jo), and Jim Walker (Kim) and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband, Max Evon McElroy Sr., and an infant son, Terry Lee McElroy.


Janice Marie (Walker) McElroy was born in Council Bluffs, Iowa on July 13, 1940 to Robert John Walker Sr. and Dorothy Astell (Edenburn) Walker. She married Max Evon McElroy on January 6, 1958 in Council Bluffs, Iowa. She gave birth to 8 children in 11 years and spent most of her early life as a homemaker trying to keep us all clean and fed.


She worked at Bethany Lutheran home for 10 years as a Nurse Aide.


Mom enjoyed bird watching, flower gardening, vegetable gardening, and she was an absolute wizard with a crochet hook, a sewing machine, and almost any other craft she could get her hands on. Most of all, she loved her family beyond anything else. She devoted her entire life to her children and grandchildren and we are blessed beyond measure for the family bond that she created between all of us.


Mom asked for a very simple Graveside Service for her final goodbye. In keeping with her wishes that service will begin on Wednesday, February 15 at 2:30 PM in Memorial Park Cemetery. Memorials can be directed to her family.
