Janice (Jan) Marie Hamberg
Janice (Jan) Marie Hamberg (nee Vogelsang) lost her three-year battle with cancer on June 1st. After her 2018 diagnosis, she lived with determination and vigor by being the caring and playful Memaw to Gracie, a loving and supportive Mom to Daniel J. Hamberg and Sarah (Brian) Chisom, and a solid and steadfast partner to her loving husband of 42 years, John M. Hamberg. She supported and backed three family moves to Air Force Bases during his military career (Hickam, K.I. Sawyer, and Minot). Jan planted flowers and vegetables in her backyard garden just 2 weeks ago, was still devouring books, and worked from home for The Miller-Valentine Group as their payroll controller in between chemo appointments. She was the devoted and protective daughter of Richard and the late JoAnn Vogelsang, sister to Judi, Rick (Margie) and the late Dave Vogelsang. She was Aunt to Adam, Phillip, Jackie, Michael, Tony, Alex, Amanda, Kara, and the late Amber. Fun sister-in-law to Pam and Mike Collins, Mike Hamberg, JoAnn Hamberg and Jim Anness, Nancy and Tom Morris, and Margie Vogelsang. She had a great relationship with MillerValentine co-workers: Janie Sullivan, Andrea Jones, Katie Gilliam and others.
The family wishes to thank Doctor Samer Alsidawi and Oncology Nurse Jennifer Mundstock and the many others who helped Jan during her fight. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Jan’s name to either The Hamilton County Public Library Foundation, 800 Vine Street, Cinti 45202 or to The Amber Collins James Nursing Scholarship, UC Blue Ash, 9555 Plainfield Road, Cinti 45236.
