Janice E. Morse (Rich), 79, of Plainville, beloved wife of Lawrence E. Morse, passed away unexpectedly at home on Wednesday, March 23, 2022. She was predeceased by her parents, Dorothy and Russell Rich.


In addition to her husband of 60 years, Lawrence, she leaves behind her daughter, Pamela, son-in-law, Michael, and granddaughters, Dena and Mya Branciforte. She is also survived by her sisters, Marlene Hall and Carolann Bennett.


We will remember her for her quick wit, and subtle and sometimes sarcastic sense of humor.  She was an avid reader, lover of all animals, an enthusiastic  Dale Earnhardt fan, and followed UCONN Girls Basketball faithfully.


Although our “goodbyes'' started years ago when dementia took over, there are still many moments that are now memories we will cherish. Janice loved to take long rides and listen to her oldies music; Magic Wings Butterfly Conservatory was one of her favorite places to visit. She thrived when she was on the go meeting different people and new places. We are fortunate that she was able to remain in the comfort of her own home.


We want to thank the staff of the Mulberry Gardens Day Center past and present. Their love and support of Mom was appreciated. She had many good days in their care. We also want to thank her wonderful neighbors that helped whenever we needed it most.


There will be no calling hours. Burial will be private. If you wish to honor Jan’s passing, please consider a donation to the following in her honor: to the Connecticut Humane Society. To leave online condolences please visit
