JANICE CAROL KROONTJE was born to Russell and Ellen (Allen) Tousley on January 24, 1946 on the family farm in rural Carson City, Michigan where she was raised. She attended Butternut Country School and later graduated from Carson City High School in 1964. Janice attended Central Michigan University for two years and then attended Grand Rapids School of the Bible and Music for three years. Following her education she worked four years with Child Evangelism Fellowship as a summer missionary, then four years at St. John’s Home for emotionally disturbed children in Grand Rapids. Janice was united in marriage on June 7, 1973 to Marvin Kroontje in Magnolia, Minnesota. Following their marriage, Janice joined Marvin and his five children at their home in Magnolia.
