Janice Reeder-Highleyman, 69, passed away on January 2, 2022 due to a long illness.
She was intensely private and never wanted to talk much about herself. Most of us in the Connect Community had no idea that she was bravely battling Stage IV ovarian cancer. And, she didn’t want much of a fuss made after her passing.
She loved her pets and, of course, her husband Dr. Bill, who is also a long-time Tandem/NonStop supporter, author, and Brainiac. He is retired, and will be moving from Blairstown, NJ to Jackson Hole, Wyoming to be closer to his daughter Norene [Highleyman] Christensen.
Here is a recent biography she used in one of her Connect Converge articles. “Janice Reeder-Highleyman has produced technology articles and marketing content for decades. She’s not really that old, but she has been busy. Having served as chairman of the International Tandem User Group, Janice also has volunteered in numerous capacities both for ITUG and for Connect. In her spare time, Janice is a hiker, a kayaker, an avid Alpine and Nordic skier, and a flight instructor. If you want Janice to teach you how to fly, move to New Jersey. Otherwise, you can live anywhere and still contract her marketing and writing services …”
We wish we could contact you still, Janice. Please rest in peace.
