Janet Hanks Stauss, 92, passed away peacefully in New Bern, NC, on January 4, 2024. She was the
daughter of Paul B. Hanks Sr, and Laura (Eddy) Hanks of Brockport, NY. Janet was predeceased by her
husband Elmer L. Stauss, her brothers Robert E. Hanks and Paul B. Hanks Jr., and sister Virginia Boyce.
She is survived by her daughter Deborah Stauss Hickman (Lou) of Stevensville, MD; her son Mark Stauss
(Marilyn) of Houston, Texas; grandchildren Eric Hickman, Ryan Hickman (Ayla), and Erin Stauss; great-
grandson, Noah Hickman; and many nieces and nephews.
Janet was a graduate of Syracuse University where she met and married her husband, Elmer. She
earned a Masters in Education from SUNY Brockport. She spent her career as a special education
teacher, and lived for many years in East Aurora, NY. Upon retiring, she moved to New Bern, NC where

and friends throughout her entire life. She will always be remembered for her sense of humor, ready smile,
positive outlook, and love of life.
