Janice M. Olheiser, age 77, of Northfield, Minnesota formerly of Dickinson, passed away Monday, July 4, 2016 at Three Links Care Center.


Janice was born February 9, 1939 in Langdon, North Dakota, the daughter of Peter and Alice (Thody) Moffatt.  She graduated from Hannah High School and later received her Registered Nursing degree from Trinity Hospital in Minot.  In 1961, she married John Olheiser of Dickinson.  The couple divorced in 1995.  Janice worked at various hospitals in North Dakota including Williston, Bismarck, Minot and Hazen.  In 1979 she began working at St Joseph’s Hospital  in Dickinson and in 1980 became Director of Nursing.  She went on to work as a home health nurse serving from Dickinson to the Montana border.  Janice retired in 2004.


Janice was honest and full of high inspirations.  She found contentment in life providing for her family and loved ones.  She had a great sense of responsibility and duty as evident from her career as a nurse and was also comforting, appreciative and affectionate for those she cared for.  Janice touched others with her warmth and ebullient spirit.


Janice is survived by her two sons, Patrick (and Germaine) of Apple Valley, David of Everett, WA, a grandson, Colin of Apple Valley, two sisters, Helen Halle of Grand Forks, Norma Feay of Bemidji, and her former husband, John.  She was preceded in death by her parents, and a brother, P. Marvin Moffatt.


Services for Janice will be held at a later date in Hannah.  biermanfuneralhome.com

    I always enjoyed working with Jan. She was pleasant, worked hard, and had a friendly, patient attitude. I also remember doing dressing changes on her after a surgery she had. I was thinking about her a couple weeks ago and was thinking I hadn’t seen her for a very long time. She was very proud of her boys! My prayers and sympathy to all her family. She was one of a kind.

    Jan was my neighbor in belfield when we lived in the apartments. She was such a kind and sweet woman. She was just like a grandma to my daughter Tara. They had play dates and movie nights together!! Lots of great memories with this sweet woman. So sorry for your loss. Thoughts and prayers to your family!!
