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.

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.
