Janice Elaine Nuehring Trethewey, 87, passed away on August 29 with her sons at her side. She was born on May 3, 1936, in South Bend, Indiana to Margaret Nyers Day (1914-1983) and Fred Allen Day (1907-1972). After graduating from Central High School in 1954, she moved to Chicago to attend The Patricia Stevens Career College and Finishing School. In 1956 she wed Dennis Dean Nuehring (1934-2017) of Chicago. They were married for 17 years and had two sons. She wed David Trethewey (1937-2020) of Mishawaka in 1985 and they lived in South Bend until his death.

Janice was employed by The University of Notre Dame for 37 years. She worked under the Golden Dome in the computer center, and later in Accounting and Financial Services until her retirement in 2011. She enjoyed the beautiful campus and could be found walking around the lake and lighting candles at the Grotto. For 48 years she was a member of Holy Cross Catholic Church and served as a Eucharistic Minister. She will be remembered for her warm smile, sly sense of humor, and quick wit. She leaves behind a legacy of faith, family, and friendship.

Janice is survived by her sons, Dennis Allen Nuehring (Dr. David Odom) of Auburn, Alabama, and Kenneth Dean Nuehring (Joyce Stiglitz) of Sarasota, Florida.
