Funeral ServiceJanice's Life CelebrationJanice Marie Cheseldine, 61 of Mechanicsville, MD died March 16, 2013 at her residence.
Born August 26, 1951 in Leonardtown, MD she was the daughter of the late Bernard Anthony Wise and Dorothy Marie (Evans) Wise of Leonardtown, MD.
Janice enjoyed going to church at Living Word Community Church and fellowshipping with her church family. She was very talented and creative in many ways and enjoyed scrapbooking, stamping and making cards. Janice also liked to play music. Her instrument of choice was the bass fiddle, and her favorite type of music was Christian. She loved baseball and her favorite team was the Washington Nationals. She never missed a game on television unless it was on a church night. A couple of years ago her son Scott picked her up for a surprise birthday night out. As they were driving by the Nationals Stadium, she told him one day she was going to go to a live ball game. He looked at her and laughed and turned into one of the Nationals parking lots and said this is your lucky day. From that moment on, she was one of their best fans. Her favorite place to vacation was spending time on the beach in Ocean City, MD.
For the past 37 plus years, she worked for the St. Mary's County Public Schools and retired in January 2013. She finished her career working at Benjamin Banneker Elementary School working with kindergarten students. She loved them all as if they were her own.
