SALEM, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – Janice Kay Jeffries Bosu passed away peacefully early Saturday morning, April 18, 2020 at Salem Regional Medical Center in the company of her husband and daughter.
She was born August 20, 1937 in Salem, Ohio, the daughter of the late Robert and Ruth (Rhodes) Jeffries.
Janice graduated from Salem High School in the Class of 1955 and attended Akron University where she earned a Bachelor’s of Education in Biology. She also earned a Master’s Degree in Guidance and Counseling from Westminster College.
She was a science teacher and guidance counselor at Salem Junior High and Salem High Schools (respectively) for 30 plus years where she not only touched the lives of many students but also the staff of Salem schools.
She enjoyed traveling with her husband, daughter and grandsons with favorite destinations being Cape Cod, Outer Banks, Daytona and Las Vegas. A life-long Salem Quaker fan, she especially enjoyed watching her future husband play high school basketball and eventually watching her grandsons’ high school sporting events.
