Janice Dorine (Louque) Sisco, of Columbia, passed from this life to another on Wednesday, July 29, 2020 at the age of 70 following an extensive battle with COVID-19.
Dorine was born on October 11, 1949 in Waynesboro to Philip and Violet Louque. She met the love of her life and her best friend, Mike Sisco, when she was in first grade. They graduated from Lewis County High School in 1967 and eventually married on December 26, 1970. Their greatest achievement came when they welcomed their son, Eddie, to the world.
After many years of living in different parts of the United States, the family finally moved closer to home and settled in Columbia. Dorine was the rock of her family and the most positive person to be around. She will be missed beyond measure. Dorine was an exceptional artist with a realistic touch. She loved arts and crafts and sewing anything from her own draperies to making quilts for loved ones.
Along with her husband, Mike, and son, Eddie, she is survived by one sister, Carol Cooper of Mt. Dora, Florida; and a tremendous number of beloved friends and extended family. Her nieces and nephews were very special to her.
Services are being planned for October 11, 2020. Dorine will be laid to rest in Graves Cemetery, a peaceful part of Sinking Creek where her mother, aunts and uncles grew up.
