Janyce Leibman (aka Janyce Weiss) passed away on January 11. We already miss her deeply, but are comforted in knowing that she no longer suffers from the Alzheimer’s disease that plagued her for many years. We are so grateful for all of the messages of love and support as we begin to mourn this incredible loss. Many of you, like us, will miss her uniquely loving & compassionate nature, her sense of humor, her unending hugs, and that incredible sparkle in her eye. Those who knew her were very fortunate. Those who were loved by her were given the gift of a lifetime.

A private burial with immediate family will be held on Friday morning at Mount Sinai (Simi Valley).

A virtual memorial service will take place on Friday, January 15 at 4:00pm (PST). All are welcome to attend – for the Zoom link, please email Janyce’s niece, Amy, at [email protected]

In lieu of flowers, Janyce can be honored through a donation to the Children’s Law Center of California to provide educational support for children in foster care: https://www.clccal.org/get-involved/donate/. Janyce dedicated more than 40 years of her life to education and children, first as an elementary and middle school teacher and later as a school counselor. Her focus as a counselor in LAUSD was supporting children with disabilities, and she was incredibly passionate about this work. Today, she would be humbled and honored to be remembered through contributions to support the very meaningful work of the Children’s Law Center in their efforts to advocate on behalf of children in foster care.
