Janice Marlene Tilchen

Janice Marlene Tilchen, 75, of Delray Beach, Florida and Detroit, Michigan, died on 10 July 2022.

Janice Marlene Tilchen danced into our hearts on February 26th, 1947. A proud Detroit resident for over six decades, Jan loved Motown, musicals at the Fisher Theater, and Tigers’ games. Jan is survived by her three daughters, Nicole Tilchen Nespeca (Marc), Melanie Tilchen Alexander (Jamie), and Lindsay Tilchen Johnson (Randy) as well as her four grandchildren; JJ, Madelyn, Myles and Laila Grace, who loved calling her Granny Janny. Janice is also survived by her ex-husband of 36 years, Alan Tilchen, and a myriad of nieces, nephews, cousins and dear friends.

Jan was the Bloomfield Hills PTO president, an avid tennis player, golfer and dancer. Jan moved to Delray Beach, Florida later in life, and within two days, bonded with even more friends, colleagues and continued her mitzvahs in volunteering at Hadassah and ORT. She was a feminist who treated everyone with love, laughter, and humor. Jan was one of the first Camp Walden campers and was given the name Bubbles. Her three daughters followed in her footsteps, enjoying Camp Walden for many years, and now her grandchildren are continuing the Walden tradition. Jan is predeceased by Wally and Irene Friedman, Alex and Regina Friedman, Phil and Mary Tilchen, Richard and Audrie Friedman, Marley Chudnow, and Dr. Woody Friedman (Beverly). Funeral services were held at Temple Beth El of Boca Raton, Florida.
