OSAGE CITY, Kan. – Janice Arlene White, 74, of Osage City, Kan., died Tuesday, July 20, 2021, at Osage Nursing Center. She was lovingly surrounded by family and friends in the days prior to her passing. She was born Feb. 21, 1947, in Emporia, Kan, the daughter and youngest of three of Francis Krueger and Mary (Atchison) Krueger Bartee.

She graduated from Emporia High School in 1966, and attended Emporia State University.

She was also a member of the Altar Society.

Janice ran a successful daycare from her home in Osage City for many years. Later, she worked in downtown Osage City for Ben Franklin and Duckwalls/Alco in retail service, and for several years as a security guard for Wackenhut Security and Target Distribution Center before her retirement.

Janice married William F. White Jr. on Oct. 21, 1967. They were married for 50 years before he preceded her in death Jan. 20, 2018. Together, they enjoyed dancing, bowling, visiting with friends, and enjoying their family, especially their grandson.

Janice was also preceded in death by her parents; her stepfather, Loyd Bartee; and her dear sister, Sharon A. Hanson; and many beloved cousins.

A celebration of life Mass is open to the public and will be 10 a.m. Friday, July 30, at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, Osage City, with a graveside service and luncheon to follow. The family requests attendees who aren’t vaccinated for COVID-19 to wear a mask out of respect for others. Janice was cremated; Angels Above Cremation Services, Topeka, handled the responsibility. She will be buried at Mt. Calvary Catholic Cemetery, Osage City.
