Janice Lentz, the daughter of Romen and Irene Smahl Marak was born Nov. 15, 1941, in Swisher, Ia. Her childhood years were spent in Cedar Rapids where she graduated from Cedar Rapids Prairie High School.
Janice married Neal Lentz on Oct. 21, 1963, in Cedar Rapids, Ia. She worked as a legal secretary in a law firm until they moved to Spencer where she worked for Shopko for 17 years. Janice also was a cook at the Senior Center and for the last three years was a cashier at Cenex in Fostoria, Ia.
