Janice Elis Obituary

Janice Marie Elis, age 74 of Otsego, formerly of Robbinsdale, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, March 6, 2024. She was born to George Frank and Leda Marie (Cota) Weiland on January 19, 1950 in Crookston, MN, and grew up in Euclid, MN.

On April 18, 1980, Janice Marie Weiland and Thomas Eugene Elis were united in marriage. They were blessed with three daughters: Kelly, Kayla and Jayme.

Janice dedicated forty years of her life to her career as a phone operator until her well-deserved retirement. Her dedication and professionalism left a lasting mark on those she worked with. Following her retirement, Janice continued her service by working as a PCA for Home Instead.

Janice was a devoted member of Mary Queen of Peace Catholic Church in Rogers. She found fulfillment in giving back to her community through her involvement with Sharing and Caring Hands through St. Margaret Mary Church in Robbinsdale, embodying the principles of compassion and empathy in her actions.

In her leisure time, Janice found joy in simple pleasures and hobbies that brought her immense happiness. She was an avid reader, a puzzle enthusiast, and had a fondness for horror movies. Her skilled hands were often busy with embroidery projects, and she enjoyed Sudoku and word search puzzles. Saturdays were reserved for cherished lunches with loved ones, where there were many laughs and fond memories made. Janice loved to be social and made it a priority to catch up with family and friends whenever she could. She was one of the most generous people one would meet, and she embraced everyone with open arms.

She is preceded in death by her loving husband, Thomas Eugene Elis; daughter, Kayla Ann Sisk; parents, George and Leda Weiland; and brother, Robert Weiland.

Janice is survived by her daughters, Kelly (Anthony) Pervenanze and Jayme Elis, both of Otsego, MN; daughter #4, Kelli (Paul) Csikos of Champlin, MN; grandchildren, Lauryn and Nora Pervenanze, Gabriela Avila-Elis, Jada and Juliana Csikos; sister-in-law, Rose Weiland; beloved cat, Mildred Gertrude; and many nieces, nephews, family and friends.
