It is with heavy hearts that we share the passing of Janice (Kabes) Rueschhoff, a beloved wife, loving mother, grandmother and friend, who left us on Friday, August 4th at the age of 83.  Funeral Mass will be 10:30am on Friday, August 11 at St. Wenceslaus Catholic Church in Dodge with Rev. James Weeder as celebrant.  Burial will be at St. Wenceslaus Cemetery with lunch following at the church hall.  Visitation will be Thursday from 5:00pm to 7:00pm with a Vigil Service at 7:00pm at St. Wenceslaus Catholic Church.  In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to St. Wenceslaus Catholic Parish in Dodge.  Arrangements by Stokely Funeral Home.

Janice grew up on a family farm in Clarkson, Nebraska and later met and married the love of her life Leo Rueschhoff, Jr. on April, 16, 1959.  Together they raised five children in Dodge, Nebraska. In addition to being a mother and homemaker, Janice worked in the kitchen of the Parkview Nursing Home for over 25 years.

Janice expressed her love in many ways, including sharing her talents in the kitchen.  She loved to experiment with new recipes from friends and was also faithful to her regular stand-bys like kolaches, horn rolls, caramel rolls and fruit roll-ups.  She created countless memories around the family table where her delicious meals brought loved ones closer together, and may have caused an argument or two over who could have the last horn roll.

Her green thumb was undeniable as her and Leo’s gardening prowess turned the family home into a vibrant oasis. Janice’s dedication to growing and canning fruits and vegetables brought joy to her family with plenty to share with friends and neighbors, too.

Janice’s legacy lives on through her children and grandchildren and the fond memories they share. Her smile, kind heart, and remarkable skills will forever be etched in our hearts. As we say goodbye to Janice, we celebrate a life well-lived and the indelible mark she left on her family and friends.

Janice is preceded in death by her husband, Leo Rueschhoff, her parents Edith and Ladislav Kabes and her son Gregg Rueschhoff. She is survived by daughter-in-law Janet Rueschhoff and grandchildren Jason (Jiear), Lisa (Rod), her children Jeffrey Rueschhoff and grandchildren Ian and Morgan, Jerry (Jodi) Rueschhoff and grandchildren Jack and Charile, Julie (Rueschhoff) Schmidt and grandchildren Jesse (Paige) and Jonah (Ke’ala), Steve (Darcie) Rueschhoff and grandchild Allison, six great-grandchildren, and siblings Marcella (Kabes) Suchan, Margie (Kabes) Wiese, Leonard Kabes, Don Kabes, and Elaine (Kabes) Snyder.
