After struggling with ongoing medical issues during the past few years Janice quietly passed on May 6, 2018. She has joined her father Elmer Dahlman, mother Edna and sister Betty Dahlman Johnston in her next adventure. Her husband of 71+ years, Richard Stallbaum, will continue to be by her side as always.

Janice was a true Langley girl, born April 16, 1926. Graduated from South Whidbey High School in 1943, she met her husband at Cozy Corners in Clinton soon after he was discharged from the U.S. Army in January 1946. They were married in the Methodist Church in Langley on Nov. 9th 1946 and spent the first year of marriage living in an apartment above the Langley Garage. They moved to Seattle so that her husband could finish college at the University Of Washington. After successful business careers they retired in 1975 and moved back to Whidbey.

Janice always claimed not to be an athlete, but after moving back to Whidbey in 1975 she joined Useless Bay Golf and Country Club and rapidly became a winner and captain of the ladies’ team. She and her husband built their permanent home on Mutiny Bay in 1977; she loved to travel, loved to fish and cruise in all the waters of Canada. She knew all the great spots to anchor or tie up. On one very special trip, she met John Wayne and traded crabbing information for a bottle of wine.

Janice and her husband Richard have 3 children; Joy Anderson (Steve) of Clinton, Rick Stallbaum (Barbara) of Arlington and Sydney Zenger of Arlington. They have seven grandchildren and four great grandchildren.

A private service will be held at a later date.
