Nancy is preceded in death by her mother, Arlene McGaffigan, and her father, Frank Kiernan. Nancy, known to her family as Nana, is survived by her husband, Michael Janosco III; her son, Michael Janosco IV and wife Jade Janosco; her daughter, Dr. Marianne Janosco and husband Steven Luppert; her sisters, Patty Applegate and Jeannie Schaller; her brother, John Kiernan; and her grandchildren, Adalynn Luppert, Aubree Luppert, Joseph Luppert, Brynn Luppert, and Carson Janosco.
Formerly Nancy Florence Kiernan, she was born in Malden, Massachusetts, attended
Malden High School, and then attended North Adams State College where she received her bachelor’s degree. To all, and in the full grace of God her Lord and Savior, Nancy was a beaming light that illuminated all darkness. Love and devotion to serving others were the ways in which she chose to live. Her faithfulness in spreading her kind and generous spirit showered those around her with unconditional love and warmth. She prayed, she loved, and she gave.
While residing in Celebration, Florida she was a longstanding member of Corpus Christi Catholic Church, and she enjoyed life’s truest blessings of spending time with her husband and children, and watching her grandchildren grow, play, and learn. She enjoyed lunches and dinners out with family and friends at local eateries, and visiting the Disney theme parks where she magically inspired those to dream and hope. During her summers in Old Orchard Beach, Maine, she and her husband spent their time hosting family and friends, creating unforgettable, longstanding memories on the beach and pier, and savoring sunsets, full moons, and nature’s sounds and landscapes. Nancy Janosco, her peace and her comfort, will forever guard our hearts.
