Janice M. Nalett Obituary
Janice Marjorie Nalett (nee Collins) age 81, a current resident of Camarillo, California died Monday, August 28, 2017 of natural causes. Loving wife to Robert Nalett (dec. 2016), Janice was born in Genoa, New York to Myron and Florence (Parker) Collins, an identical twin to her sister Janet (dec. 1972). Janice spent her early years living in New York, Maryland and New Hampshire.

Janice earned her Bachelors of Science degree in Nursing and worked as a registered nurse for several years. Janice moved to Sacramento, CA in 1962 where she raised two boys, Stephen and Neil Canby. In a career shift after the birth of her sons, Janice earned a teaching certificate and later a Master’s Degree in Education. She worked as an elementary school teacher for many years in Rancho Cordova, CA. After her retirement, Janice moved to Las Vegas, NV with her husband, Robert Nalett, and there she would substitute teach for several more years.

Janice was a driven and talented individual. She trained for and ran in the Sacramento Marathon. She was a very talented artist in painting with oils, especially portrait painting. She was an avid reader and she was very generous of her time and belongings. Janice enjoyed traveling to spend time with family; her grandchildren gave her great joy later in life.

Janice is survived by her brother Robert Collins of Spencerport, NY, her sons, Stephen Canby of San Jose, CA and Neil Canby of Camarillo, CA, their wives Diane and Claudia and her five grandchildren, Elise, Ian, Max, Connor and Ryan.
