Janie Wormsbecker

lost her battle with cancer on April 4, 2013. She was 64 years old. The Wormsbeckers lost a wife, mother, grandmother, and dog-mom. Janie was raised in Pennsylvania, where she met the love of her life Larry Wormsbecker. Soon after their marriage, they moved to California landing in Big Bear where Larry’s parents were living. They raised three wonderful children in Big Bear.

Janie was preceded in death by her father and mother. Janie is survived by her husband, Larry, children Cindy, Tammi, and Billy and his wife Kimmie, four grandchildren: Tashia, Nolan, Trey, and Gerrith.

Janie was known for her “Golden Heart” and artistic talents, especially drawing dogs for her many dog loving friends and family. Her dog drawings are treasures and adorn many homes all over the world. She was an avid bowler and was on many teams here in Big Bear. It is with great sorrow that we say goodbye to Janie. Our hearts are heavy, but we feel peace knowing that you are pain free and enjoying many dog licks and warm hugs from all of those who went before you.
