She was born on July 16, 1965 in Butler and raised in West Sunbury, graduating from Moniteau High School in 1983.  She was an active member of the Family Support Group for Alpha CO. 1/112th Infantry Company of Butler, PA during their first tour in Iraq in 2004. She later was a cofounder of a nonprofit called Support Operation Solder (SOS) where she coordinated collections and mailings for 100s of care packages to send overseas. Janice worked at TW Phillips for many years with her husband, Carl, and years later started working as a Senior Buyer for Ibis Tek, Inc. purchasing raw materials for HUMVEEs.  She loved taking care of her yard, enjoyed flowers, playing word games with her friends, visiting with her mother, and going to camp with her family and friends.

She was predeceased by her husband, Sgt. Carl J. Morgain, who was killed in action May 22, 2005; her parents, Helen J. (Logut) Sankey and Arthur D. Sankey; her siblings: Larry Sankey, Artie Sankey Jr., Christine Rothman (Sankey), Veronica Morrow (Sankey); her in-laws, Terry Moore, Dr. David Rothman, and Cherie Sankey.

She is survived by her son: Zachary Macurak of Saxonburg; her daughter: Madison Morgain (Fiancé, Billy McGregor) of Slippery Rock; one grandson, Cooper Macurak; her sister, Sherri Moore of Butler; and her partner of many years, Nick Iannotti.  She is also survived by her mother in-law, Carol F.
