Janice Dwinnell Greenwood, 51, of Hopkinton, MA passed peacefully, surrounded by family at her sister and parent’s home in Upton on May 28, 2014 due to complications with a terminal illness. She was born March 8,1963 and grew up in Hopkinton.

Dwinnell of Upton; her siblings, Richard Dwinnell and wife Cheri Dwinnell of Raymond, ME, Ronald Dwinnell and wife Eileen Dwinnell of San Clemente, CA and Butler County PA, Kelleigh Parker of Lincoln, RI, Cyndi Dwinnell Dionne and husband James M.

Janice is predeceased by her parent Chester Ranlett who passed May 20, 2008, her brother, Randall Dwinnell who passed October 13, 1978 and also her beloved companion Honey.

Janice was truly a unique soul, giving up material comforts to travel the world to study dance, religion, art and writing. She wanted to have a true sense of community, and a positive influence on people’s lives. She traveled to many places in Europe and South America. Mexico was her love, living amongst the indigenous people, teaching young children and women English. She danced at Myan temples to help bring together community. She always said she met the most amazing people in Mexico, people who did not have any luxuries but were rich with love, family, and a sense of community.
Janice will be missed by many around the world. She has touched so many lives, and taught us all something that will carry us for a lifetime. I love you, my beautiful, free spirited sister. I will see you again one day, and together we will dance along the light of day.

Janice’s Celebration of Life will be held on June 22, 2014 at Pout Rock on Lake Whitehall in Hopkinton, MA. Then followed by a luncheon at the Woodville Rod and Gun Club. Arrangements are under the care of the Chesmore Funeral Home of Hopkinton. www.ChesmoreFuneralHome.com
