Janice A. (Dacey) Kamalski
January 31, 1965 - September 30, 2023
Janice A. (Dacey) Kamalski, age 58 of New Castle, DE passed away unexpectedly on September 30, 2023.
Janice was born in Wilmington, DE on January 31, 1965. She was a graduate of William Penn High School Class of 1983. She also spent some time studying abroad in London with the University of Delaware, where she saw the love of her life for the first time, Elton John. She later married someone slightly less famed, Mark J. Kamalski in 1994 with whom she remained happily married for 15 years and sharing two children before his unexpected passing in March 2009.
She was well-known for her humorous personality and affective presence, and she thrived in any crowd. If Janice wasn’t cracking a joke, she was likely spending her time painting, doing crossword puzzles, or losing her last twenty bucks to a slot machine. Those who were lucky enough to call her a friend knew they could always confide in her for her advice or her humor.
Janice is survived by her children Kelly and Luke Kamalski; her siblings Linda Dacey and Patricia Johnson; several cousins, nieces, nephews, and was very excited to meet her first grandchild this week. She is preceded in death by her parents Edward Dacey and Elizabeth Weidner O’Neill; and her husband Mark J. Kamalski.
She will be greatly missed by her loving family and always remembered in their hearts.
We are sincerely grateful to the many friends who have given us support and comfort during this time of loss.
Per Janice’s request, services will be private. A celebration of life is to be held at a later date- please reach out to Kelly Kamalski for more information.
