CHAMPION — Janice Conley Foutty, 75, passed away peacefully Wednesday, June 5, 2019, after an extended illness, at The Windsor House in Champion. She previously resided at Champion Estates Assisted Living.

She was born on Aug. 16, 1943, in Warren to Ted and Birdine Geer.

Janice graduated from Newton Falls High School and lived there most of her life. She married John C. Conley on Aug. 31, 1963, and they shared 36 years together until his passing in 1997.

In 1998, she relocated to Murrells Inlet, S.C., where she was married to Charles “Chuck” Foutty on Aug. 16, 2001, until his passing on Dec. 17, 2011. Janice then made her way back home to Ohio where she spent time with family and friends until her passing.

She enjoyed classic cars, country music, making stained glass projects, knitting, sewing and embroidering. Above all, she had a great love for all animals, rescuing and raising anything from puppies, to wild birds, squirrels and ducklings.

Loving memories will be carried on by her three sons, John C. Conley (Debra) of Englewood, Fla., Thomas J. Conley of Springfield, Ill. and Troy D. Conley (Deanna) of Deer Park, Texas; five grandchildren; and one great-grandchild.

She was preceded in death by her parents; sister, Geraldine Shaffer, and her husbands, John and Chuck.
