AUGUSTA – Janice S. Crockett, 84, of Augusta passed away peacefully Saturday, Jan. 15, 2022, at Granite Hill Estates in her room at Reflections. She was born in Portland on Jan. 9, 1938. The daughter of Dorothy (Wing) and Roscoe Jones.

Janice attended Portland schools and graduated from Deering High School, class of 1956. She attended Westbrook Junior College earning an associate degree in Medical Lab Technology.

Janice married Robert Crockett on Feb. 4, 1961 and cherished their 44 years of marriage. Together they raised a son and daughter, and Janice was very active with school activities to support her children. When the children left the house, Janice enjoyed volunteering at Kennebec Valley Medical Center and later at the Cumston Public Library, Monmouth.
