Here is Janice's death notice and obituary:

LIEBERMAN Janice (Freedman) age 100, of Randolph, MA, formerly of Deerfield Beach, FL and Brookline, MA passed away peacefully, 11:45 pm at the Milton Hospital on Tuesday, July 24, 2012 after falling in her apartment on Monday, July 16, 2012.

For 57 years, she was the beloved wife of the late Leo Max Lieberman and then for 13 years she was a companion to Charles Etman of Deerfield Beach, FL.

She was the daughter of Larza and Bessie Freedman of Boston, MA and the sister of the late Adele Huppert of Boston, MA and her late brother Eliot Freedman of Van Nuys, CA.

She leaves her three sons, Burt & Miriam Lieberman of NYC, NY, Fred & Karyn Lieberman of Chatham, NY and Bob & Marcia Lieberman of Norwood, MA; and her sister-in-law Pearl Allen of Randolph, MA along with a number of nieces, nephews, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

"A big thank you goes out to Leslie Storer, because the last three years, she spent time with my mother on either Saturday or Sunday afternoon. They loved to be together to shop and visit Friendly's for a nice lunch. Again, thank you, Leslie.

"Janice was a member of the basketball team at Dorchester High for Girls and in her later years followed in her husband and son's footsteps by taking up the game of golf, while living in Florida. Her husband and 2 sons, Bob & Fred, all were able to score hole-in-ones. She was a very religious woman and was in her earlier years the President of the Sisterhood of Chai Odom in Dorchester, MA.

"She continued her involvement and was a past President of the Brookline B'nai Brith Chapter. She enjoyed her life and until the very, very end was actively knitting scarves for the "elderly". She also made hats for some of the people that lived in the Fireman Community Center of 640 North Main Street in Randolph, MA where she resided in her studio apartment.

In closing, I want to thank the staff in the Emergency Room, I.C.U. and the old Colony Hospice team at the Beth/Israel Deaconess Milton Hospital, for all their help in making the end of my mother's life, that of quality.

"One final and very important thank you goes out to Dr. Thatte, whose warm and caring manner made a very difficult situation turn into a more positive one. I want to thank the staff at the Fireman Community Center for being so kind to my mother for the almost four years that she lived there.

"Remember if you happen to cry tears, they are tears of joy and not tears of sorrow. She had a wonderful life. May all your lives be as complete as my mother's was." Services will be private. Donations in memory of Janice Lieberman may be made to the Ray Tye Foundation."
