Janice DiPietrantonio's Funeral Expenses

Janice Dipietrantonio was born August 18, 1971. She was the daughter of Jane and Stanley McCreary and the mother of Teresa McDowell, Kristina Elias, and Tyler Marsh. She worked hard at her job with the Community College of Baltimore County. She had few friends, who loved her dearly and always wanted the best for her; as did her children. She loved the beach, spending time with her kids, Nicholas Sparks' books, sappy movies, The Bachelor, Grey's Anatomy, and many more things. Unfortunately, her life was cut short unjustly on March 5th, 2019. Janice was married to Kevin Dipietrantonio for 16 years, but suffered with domestic violence issues. You'll read the news and it will say they fought like any normal couple, but that wasn't the truth. 

This is the truth.

Warning: stop here if you are triggered by domestic violence, or murder. 

Kevin and Janice shared 5 kids total together; he already had two and she already had 3. Their kids are best friends, even to this day. However, Kevin was controlling, demeaning and dishonest, even to the children. She was told what to wear, who to see, when to cook, clean, etc. Over the years, the cops were called for domestic violence issues in which physical violence erupted and children were present. Sometimes, things were good, but mostly things were bad and they both were unhappy. I know what people think: "Why didn't she/he just leave?" It wasn't as simple as it looked. But that is a story for another day. 

On March 5th, 2019, Kevin and Janice were scheduled to talk things over and prepare to get a divorce. However, a fight erupted and things escalated from there... We don't have all of the details yet. 

Janice lost her life at 6:30 pm on March 5th. She is at peace and justice is being served. 

Obviously, this was unexpected and not prepared for as my mother was so young. We are looking for donations towards funeral expenses, and I, Teresa McDowell, will be in charge of the final expenses. If you decide to donate, here is the biggest "THANK YOU" in the world from me and siblings. Any help is most appreciated. 

If you or someone you know suffers with domestic violence issues, please PLEASE get help or do your best to help them.
