Janice Trostad was born March 6, 1939 on a farm near Aneta, ND to Theodore and Selma (Reinhart) Trostad. She grew up in the Aneta area where she attended country school. Janice graduated from Cooperstown High School in 1957. On April 25, 1959, she married Dean Thompson at Ottawa Lutheran Church, rural Aneta. Together they made their home and raised their family in McVille, ND. Janice worked for various businesses in McVille. During their later years, Dean and Janice made their home in Northwood, ND where she worked at Northwood Deaconess Health Center. To the very end, Janice lived life to the fullest and could run circles around most who knew her. She enjoyed gardening, baking, sewing, fishing, playing cards and Friday night Bingo. Most of all, she treasured the time with her family and friends. Her loving and selfless heart will be missed dearly.
