In Memoriam - Lion Janet Espenshade


The East Hanover Lions club lost a cherished member and friend on March 12, 2016 with the passing of Lion Janet Espenshade. Lion Janet, a Melvin Jones Fellow, was a vivacious and very active member of the club as well as church and township activities. She ran the Park & Rec programs and Senior Center for many years and was beloved by young and old alike. Her husband, Lion Crist said he had received over 140 cards of sympathy and condolence on her passing.

On March 16 the East Hanover Lions held a Lions Service of Remembrance for Lion Janet. Many club members and our District leaders attended. The church was crowded with other mourners as well. Our service was brief and very meaningful for all. I highly recommend all Lions to consider this final tribute to their members (with family consent of course).
In memoriam for Lion Janet, I quote the last line of our remarks:
We will all miss her quick smile, sense of humor
and that gleam of mischief in her eye.
 Lion Janet Espenshade – our Lion’s friend – our Lion’s family.
