Janice F. (Behrends) Andersen

August 25, 1956 ~ September 3, 2022 (age 66)


On Saturday, September 3rd, Janice Andersen passed away peacefully while surrounded by loved ones in her home.  She was 66.  Janice was born on August 25, 1956, in Auburn Nebraska to Don and Betty Behrends. She was the youngest of 5 children.

Janice’s favorite place to be at was the beach. She could spend hours sitting on the sand, listening to the crashing waves. When she wasn’t down in Florida getting her tan on, she loved to bake treats for friends and family. She also enjoyed country music concerts and remodeling her home that she took so much pride in. You could always find her on fall Saturdays cheering on Husker football, no matter how bad they got. And, though these were the things she enjoyed most in life, she would drop everything to spend time with her grandkids. Anyone who knew her would say she had a unique sense of humor and a love of pulling practical jokes.

Janice Faye Andersen was predeceased by both of her parents, Donald and Betty Behrends; and all three siblings, Karen Strecker, Ron Behrends, and Wanda Swanson.

She is survived by her two dogs, Noelle and Bailey; her three kids, Travis Andersen and Katrina Andersen of Lincoln, and Devlin Andersen (Nicole) of Plattsmouth. As well as her two grandkids, Hannah and Hudson; her nieces, Juliet Andersen, Renae Florack (Scott), and Laura Reighard (Lee); Nephews Tracy Strecker, Chris Strecker (Tamara), Paul Strecker; friend Dixie Johnson, and other nieces, nephews, and friends.
