Issue Date: October 18, 2018
Janice (DuPont) Santos, 65, formerly of Nadeau, Mi., passed away Friday, Oct. 12, 2018, after a long and courageous battle with cancer.
Born to the late Louis and Elizabeth (Betty) DuPont, she graduated from Carney-Nadeau High School and lived in Rhome, Tx. for many years.
She was a hard-working, practical, no-nonsense type of woman that loved animals, grew up catching pollywogs and collecting June bugs and cocoons to watch the butterflies emerge.
She often drove the tractor during chores in the field and was known to ride a cow or two when her dad wasn't looking. She had many stray cats she fed and also had indoor cats.
She had a passion for plants like her mother and had her father's green thumb. She and her daughter Nicole shared their fondness for Halloween, watching movies and decorating together.
She is survived by her husband, Daniel Santos; a daughter, Nicole (Patrick) Scott; a son, Daniel, of Ft. Worth, Tx.; siblings, Joyce (Joe) Krueger of Longmont, Co., Beverly McClellan of Green Bay, Donald (Linda) DuPont of Nadeau, Linda Robinson of Broadview, Ill., Robert (Bob) DuPont of Toivola, Mi., Kathy DuPont of Roanoke, Va., Arlene DuPont of Round Lake, Ill. and Mark DuPont of Antonito, Co.; two grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by Louis (Nicola) DuPont, Betty Jane and Gloria DuPont.
