Janice Ruth Bruce was born February 15, 1938, in Fowler, Colo., to Gertrude Chaney DeMerritt & Wilbur "Bill" DeMerritt. She attended First Baptist Church and graduated from Fowler High School in 1958.
Janice married Larry "Buck" Brewer June 1959. Professionally, Jan was a licensed practicing nurse mid life and she took great joy from caring for people. She also enjoyed knitting baby booties, crocheting, playing the piano, eating good food, and snuggling her cats. Jan was a feisty woman with a mischievous glimmer in her eye and she often made us laugh. She passed away on Nov. 6, 2020, after contracting COVID-19. She is with Jesus now and finally free of the chronic pain from which she suffered through the later years of her life.
She is preceded in death by Bucky, her second husband Lewis R Bruce, and her son Gerald K Bruce. Jan is survived by her sister, Barbara Elaine Fitts, her two sons Steve and Blaine, one daughter Debra Reiter, many grandchildren and great grandchildren. She will be loved always and missed tremendously.
