Janice Mayfield (Jenkel)

June 24, 1929 — March 5, 2021

Janice Mayfield at age 91 passed away in her Montrose, Colorado home on March 5, 2021. After a long bout with COPD, she suffered a seizure a week before she finally succumbed while surrounded by her loving family.

Janice was born in San Francisco, California on June 24, 1929 to Walter and Anna Jenkel. She met Wayne Mayfield while working as an executive assistant at the San Francisco-based Lennon and Newell advertising Agency. She and Wayne were eventually married in 1953. They had 3 children, Todd, Tina and Susanna and a foster daughter, Marvie.

In 1966 the family moved to Honolulu, Hawaii where they lived for 11 years before retiring to Ridgway, Colorado. After their 3 children went out on their own, the empty nesters moved to Log Hill Village. 10 years later, they moved several more times including Mesquite Nevada, Tubac Arizona, Grand Junction Colorado then to Montrose.

After 58 years of marriage, Wayne passed away in 2010, also at the age of 91. Janice moved to Sun City, Arizona then back again to Montrose.

Janice is survived by her sister Betty Kniesche, daughter Marvie, son Todd, daughter Susanna, grand children Leahi, Ian, Justin, Luana, JoJo, Rianna and great grand daughter Kalena.

Close family and friends will gather to celebrate Janice’s life at the Cedar Hill Cemetery on what would have been her 92nd birthday.

She will be remembered for her beautiful smile, love of family, quick wit and extensive collection of ceramic pigs.

Donations in Janice’s memory can be made to HopeWest at 725 South 4th Street, Montrose, Colorado 81401.
