*********************************************

Janice M. (Boyer) Wagner, 64, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, July 21, 2021 at her daughter’s home in Harrisburg.

Born March 28, 1957 in Harrisburg, she was the daughter of the late William and Dorothy (Beil) Boyer, was a graduate of John Harris High School and had been the Bakery Manager at the former Weis Market on 29th Street.

She was widow of Harry C. Wagner, who passed away in 2011 after over 34 years of marriage. In addition to her husband and parents, Janice was preceded in death by a baby boy, and her brothers: William, Michael, and Steven Boyer.

Caring for her family meant everything to Janice. From baking pies (savory and sweet) to making repairs to clothes, she relished the time spent with her husband, daughters and grandsons. Additionally, she enjoyed ALL Patrick Swayze movies (she was “Swayze Crazy”), reading and playing story games on her tablet, and watching Chicago Fire and any show about the Kennedy’s.

Surviving are her beloved daughters: Hollie L. Johnson, Duncannon, Tammy M. Osborne (and William), Harrisburg, Roxann J. Hardison (and Ben), Steelton and Diane H. Wagner, Harrisburg; 3 sisters: Cynthia Shocker, Mechanicsburg, Annette Hippensteel (and John), Highspire and Brenda Kohr (and Pete), Middletown; 3 grandchildren: Adam Newbegin, Pittsburgh, James Jay Osborne, Harrisburg and William Osborne, Harrisburg; many nieces and nephews (to whom she was a second “Mom”); several grand furbabies; and a host of other family members and friends, all of whom will miss her greatly.

Friends and family are invited to a visitation at 10:00 am Saturday, August 21, 2021 at Kimmel Funeral Home, 2001 Market Street, Harrisburg where a Celebration of her life will follow at 11:00 am.

Contributions in her memory may be made to the American Heart Association, 4250 Crums Mill Rd, Harrisburg, PA 17112.
