Janice is preceded in death by her husband, Barney Carbajal; daughter-in-law, Bobbi Carbajal; grandson, Victor Dominguez; and many other precious family members.

She is survived by her five children and their spouses, 16 grandchildren, 24 great-grandchildren, her first great-great grandchild who is on his way, and multiple nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Janice entered eternity as she lived her life, with strength and grace. Family has requested that any flower donations be made to the Catholic Charities of New Mexico at ccasfnm.org.
