Plan Ahead

Janice Lynn Kempa


Heaven has gained another angel as Janice Kempa of Frisco Texas peacefully passed away on March 28,2022. She was 59 years old. Janice was born on June 4th, 1962 in Forest Park, Illinois and lived in the Chicago area until she moved to the Dallas Metroplex area with her family in 1984. Janice attended school in Dallas and graduated from Richardson High School.

After high school she went to work at Crowne Plaza where she worked for 16 years. She was an excellent employee, being named the employee of the month many times. She never missed a day of work until her retirement in 2007.

Janice never met a stranger and brightened everyone’s day as she lit up the room. If you asked her, how she was doing no matter how she felt she always said GREAT!!

Janice’s passion was music. She sang in the church choir for many years. She sang at all of our weddings. She loved to sing and dance to Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson and Depeche Mode. She danced and sang with all of the entertainers at Parsons House where she lived for 14 years.  And they loved her.

She loved working on workbooks, crocheting blankets, playing Pac Man, making jewelry and playing bingo where she won most of the time!

She volunteered at many holiday events at my son Kyle’s school, where she raffled off pies and handed out pizza to the kids.

Janice later lived at Parsons House in Frisco TX where she lived for 14 years. Parsons House loved Janice very much and took great care of her as if she were their very own family. When she was declining she needed to be moved to skilled nursing at Stonemere.

She died at Stonemere rehabilitation where she had rebab for many years after hospital trips and now hospice.  So they treated her like family there too. They took very good care of her until the end. She was very lucky that way!

Janice is survived by sisters Jill Kempa, Susan Segretto (Husband-Sam), Gayle Malopsy (Husband-Trip), and her brother Rob Kempa (Wife-Debbie). As well as her nephews, Kyle, Anthony, Sean and Michael and her niece Megan

Preceded in death are Bernice Kempa – MOM – Walter Kempa – DAD – all together now in heaven.

Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers during this time. If you want to honor her do something nice for someone today, she would love that.

Blessings to everyone. She will be truly missed by our whole family and everyone who’s heart she touched.

There will be a celebration of LIFE for Janice at Parsons House on May 6th at 1:30pm.

    I loved Janice Kempa…… we had a special bond and made each laugh. Janice was God’s special angel on earth, she was smart, funny, loving and caring. I will miss seeing her but I know she is now one of God’s angels in heaven. I’ll see you again in Eternity Janice. You touched my life and the lives of many others while you were with us.

"Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again."

"If I could give 6 stars I would. Aria made a difficult easier to deal with by basically taking care of everything in an efficient but very empathetic manner. I can speak highly enough of Dusty Martin, who helped us with all of the planning and logistics. He was incredibly understanding and helpful."

"Nothing prepares you for the grief you go through when losing a child. I called this funeral home at 2:00 am broken and could barely talk. The amount of compassion and empathy they showed me immediately let me know I found the right place to cremate my son. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism, SINCERE concern, and commitment to making sure my son was honored in the most respectful way. I hope this Funeral home values her as much as my family and I do."

"I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional Dusty Martin, the funeral director at the Aria Cremation location on NW Highway has been. From my initial call, he was kind and informative. My friend died at home while on hospice and she was picked up in about an hour after receiving the call from the hospice nurse. The person who arrived to pick her up was also very professional/respectful and allowed us to take as much time with her as we wished. When I met with Dusty the next day about arrangements, he explained the process and options available without being pushy or trying to “sell” extras. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and, for example, was careful to be certain I understood the cost of the obituary I wanted and offered some options for reducing that cost if I wished. When I stopped by for another reason and started talking about some of the problems I was having with the pictures and media I hoped to use at a memorial lunch I was planning, he not only listened patiently but offered technology advice and let me use his personal media player. I have had experience arranging cremations for four others using two other local companies, and this experience with Dusty at Aria has been by far the best one I have had."

"My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!"
