Janice Aileen Nystrom passed away on May 12, 2021 at the Villages Cornerstone Hospice, at the age of 76, after a 20-year battle with a blood cancer disorder. Janice was born on June 7, 1944, the daughter of Joseph and Doris (Charron) DeRome. She was raised in Concord, Mass, knowing early on that her chosen career would be that of a hairdresser. After a successful 25-year hairdressing career, Janice moved on to become a buyer for a small start-up company, later transitioning to her final career stint as the assistant to both the general manager and the human resources manager at a busy manufacturing facility.

Janice was known for her vivacious personality and winning smile, making friends wherever she went. She was proud of her service as a military wife, following her husband Carl on several assignments in his Air Force career, including a two-year assignment in Seoul, Korea.

Janice loved to travel, especially on cruises to the Caribbean Islands and Bermuda. She and Carl also had the opportunity to visit several European countries, including England, France, Germany, Switzerland, and Spain. Probably the highlight of her travels came when she had a chance to have dinner in the Eiffel Tower, followed the next night by a celebration of her 70th birthday in a quaint Paris café.

Janice is survived by Carl Nystrom, her loving husband of 41 years, of the Villages, FL. She also leaves a daughter, Rhonda Pieper, of Orlando, Florida, a stepdaughter, Jennifer Nystrom and spouse, Lori Nolen, of Bend, Oregon, grandchildren Avery Alicea and Kiara Pieper of Orlando, Florida and Leanna Caicedo and spouse, Michael Montero, of Coconut Creek, Florida, two special great granddaughters, Karina, and Valentina, as well as several nieces and nephews. Finally, she leaves a brother, Donald DeRome and his wife, Elaine, of Portsmouth, NH, as well as her incredibly close sister, Diane McSweeney, and her husband Richard, of the Villages, Florida.

Arrangements are being handled by Baldwin Brothers Funeral Home. Interment will be private at the Bushnell Florida Veteran’s Cemetery, with a celebration of Life to be scheduled for a future date.

    Janice’s birthday came up on FB today. She had been a very good friend to my mother, Elaine Lindgren,. While my mom was sick, Janice always checked in with her and with me. Her friendship was greatly appreciated. And it made my mom smile often. Thank you again Janice for being there when my mom needed you. May you both rest peacefully.

    A strange thing just happened as I was on Facebook. A little ding sound, then the circle next to Janice name and picture lit up. So I clicked on incoming messages to see what she had posted but nothing there! Then I just went to her page and found the first post was mentioning of her death, so shocking as I had not seen that she was in hospice care. I had sent her a little book of encouragement several weeks ago and wondered if she was able to get it? Carl and Rhonda, I am so saddened to learn of her passing and sending our condolences along with prayers during your grief. I will always remember the fun times she and I had in Korea.
