Janice Ann Conway, 81, of Troy Mills, Iowa passed peacefully into the arms of Jesus on Tuesday January 11, 2022 surrounded by her family.

Jan “Janny” was born on June 24, 1940 in Cedar Rapids Iowa to Edwin and Berniece Powell.  She was a 1958 graduate of Troy Mills High School, where she met her husband David Conway. They were married on April 9, 1960.  Their love endured through many trials and joys proving the committed and faithful love they shared for 61 years.  She was a devoted and loving wife, mother and grandmother. 

Jan was “one-of-a-kind” and had a vibrant, fun personality with a great sense of humor.  Making a grand entrance wherever she went, she was the life of the party.  She never missed an opportunity to laugh, make new friends or shop.  She will always be remembered for playing the piano, dancing, knitting, hooking (rug hooking that is) and decorating her beautiful home.  She loved her family deeply and will be greatly missed.  

She is survived by her husband David Conway of Troy Mills, IA; a brother John Powell (Merry) of Cedar Rapids, IA; a daughter Jill Mohwinkle (Steve Beland) of Cedar Rapids, IA; a daughter Alissa Perez (Rafael) of Wichita Falls, TX; a special daughter Susan Myers (Scott) of Wichita Falls, TX; her grandchildren Cameron, Clayton, and Christopher Mohwinkle of Cedar Rapids, IA; Gavin, Annabella and Cruz Perez of Wichita Falls, TX; Levi Myers (Rachel) of Lubbock, TX; Caleb Myers (Amy) and Jacob Myers of Wichita Falls, TX and many nieces, nephews and extended family members.  

She was preceded in death by her daughter, Sherri Conway, her parents, and a brother.
