Obituary of Janis J. Berschwinger
Janis J. “Jan” Berschwinger, 75, of Clifton Park, peacefully entered into eternal life on Friday, December 16, 2022 at Evergreen Commons in East Greenbush.
Born in Schenectady, NY, she was the daughter of the late Arnold and Hazel Hawes Crounse and was a graduate of Guilderland High School and attended SUNY College at Fredonia where she played violin and went on to play the electric bass in a jazz band. While music remained a great love throughout her life, family was most important to Jan, most especially her 3 children.
Jan had a successful career as a telecommunications sales representative and account manager, befitting her gift of conversation and allowing her to travel and meet people throughout the country, Jan always looked forward to coming back to her home to enjoy parties and clam bakes in the backyard, visiting with family, neighbors and friends, as well as taking on home improvement projects, and “camping” in Lake Luzerne with her husband, Leonard J. “Bud” Berschwinger who predeceased her in 2020.
Beloved mother of Melody (Paul Jr.) Goetz, George A. Jones, III and the late Kimberly S. Jones, cherished grandmother of Allison M. Goetz and Paul L. Goetz, III, dear sister of Beverly (late Steven) Harrington and brother John (Kim) Crounse, also survived by her 2 loving nieces, a nephew, the Berschwinger family, and her fur babies Boots, Gabriel and Michael.
Relatives and friends are invited to calling hours on Wednesday, December 21, 2022 from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Gordon C. Emerick Funeral Home, 1550 RT-9, Clifton Park, NY 12065 where at 6:00 p.m. that evening her funeral service will be officiated by Pastor Tim Flynn of the Amity Reformed Church in Vischer Ferry.
