Janet Mikulicz, 94, of Williamsburg, Va., and formally from Toms River, N.J., passed away on Monday, Dec. 5, 2016.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Michael and Helen Belakowski; sisters, Henrietta Virchick and Gloria Sulenski; and spouse, Joseph.

Janet was a business owner and a member of St. Bede Catholic Church. She loved games and only a few could beat her at Scrabble. While living in New Jersey, people watching on the Atlantic City boardwalk and pulling a few one armed bandits in the casinos was a perfect day. Here in Williamsburg, she enjoyed playing bridge, dominoes and bingo.

Janet is survived by her son, Joel Mikulicz, and his wife, Maria; daughters, Judy Brownlie, and her husband, Tom, and Janice DiGiovanni; grandchildren, Steven and Michael Brownlie and Anne, David and Paul DiGiovanni; and great-grandchildren, Joseph, Asher and Evelyn.

A visitation will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 13, at Nelsen Funeral Home, 3785 Strawberry Plains Road, Williamsburg. A Mass of Christian burial will take place at 11 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 14, at Saint Bede Catholic Church. Interment will be at a future date at Brigadier General William C. Doyle Veteran’s Memorial Cemetery, Wrightstown, N.J., next to her husband, Joseph.
