Days before her 66th birthday, Janice passed away on August 15, 2021, at the Williams Care Center in Parkers Prairie, MN. Janice was born to Lawrence and Elnora (Tabatt) Kircher on August 20, 1955, in Long Prairie, MN. She graduated with the high school Class of 1973 in Long Prairie. On June 29, 1974, Janice was united in marriage with Gerald Paul Berndt in Hewitt. They made their home and raised their family in the Hewitt and Bertha area. In earlier years, Janice liked going to the movies, and later found joy in being outdoors while gardening and sitting in her chair to start the day with a cup of coffee. She loved people unconditionally, found the best in people, and complimented those she knew and strangers alike. Janice’s kindness was unending. Her memory for dates, time and people surpassed most of the rest of the family. She gave birth to five children whom she loved deeply. Preceding Janice in death were her parents, Lawrence and Elnora Kircher. Janice is survived by her husband, Gerald of Bertha; children, Cami Kircher, Sheryl (Mike) Sandau, Staci Otis, Amy (Dennis) Baak, and Brian Illgen; five grandchildren; and siblings, Gary (Wendy) Kircher of Fertile, Jane (David) Nelson of Little Falls, Gerald Kircher of Fertile, Bradley Kircher of Long Prairie and Dennis (Jean) Kircher of Browerville. Honorary casket bearers will be Janice’s grandchildren, and active casket bearers will be Gerald Berndt, Bobby Berndt, Mike Sandau, Gary Kircher, Brooklynn Kyser and David Nelson. Burial will be in Woodman Cemetery, Clarissa, MN.
