August 27, 1994 ~ October 12, 2023

How does one announce the passing of a loving, vibrant, young woman taken from us all too soon?

Brittany Mae Janish, 29, Sioux Falls, left this world on October 12, 2023, after a tragic, devastating accident that has left all who have known her heartbroken and in disbelief.

A Visitation with the family present will be held at the St. Ann’s Catholic Church, Humboldt, at 5:00 pm – 7:30 pm, Sunday, October 22, 2023. A Memorial Mass will be 10:30 am, Monday, October 23rd, also at St. Ann’s Catholic Church, Humboldt.

Brittany Mae Janish was born on August 27, 1994, in Sioux Falls, SD, to John Janish and Pearl McMillan, and taken to her home in Humboldt, SD, where she grew up and attended school at West Central, throughout many of her school years.  In 2013, Brittany graduated from Parker, SD.

Throughout Brittany’s life, she had a beautiful soul with a smile that could light up the world. She was positive and kind and desired to help others, no matter what battles she was fighting herself.  If you met Brittany, you could not help but love her wholeheartedly.  

Brittany LOVED.  She was a daughter, a sister, an Auntie, and a cat mom, to one very spoiled cat (Mocha).  She was her dad and mom’s “Brittany Mayhoo” and came into this world with a fire in her soul and grace in her heart.  She adored her brother and sisters straight down to her bones and had an unmatched bond with her nieces and nephews.  When asked to describe Brittany, her family said she was dedicated, energetic, passionate, bright, organized, funny, sweet, observant, loving, happy, generous, colorful, and the biggest cheerleader to us all.

Brittany was preceded in death by her grandparents, George and Etta Janish, and Delbert and Naomi McMillan; her brother, David, her aunt, Julie; and her nieces, Haryper and Amelya.

Brittany will be deeply missed by her father, John; her mother, Pearl; her sisters, Jeannie (Clint), Ashley (Jordan), Crystal (Trejon), and Catherine; her twin brother, Brian (Jordyn); her nephews, Daelyn, Peyton, Graysen, and Baylor; her nieces, Alyna, Taryn, Hadley, Ava, and Evadyna; and a multitude of aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

Her impact has been engraved in our hearts; and while we know that we can no longer see her, she will be shopping right next to us, helping us pick out the perfect shade of rose gold; she will be right next to us celebrating our milestones for generations to come; and she will be right next to us with her own perfect seat in the bleachers, cheering us all on until we meet again.

    My deepest sympathy from me & my family to you & yours. I wish I had the time to visit with Brittany before her passing. We had a lot in common & could’ve learned from eachothers demons. My heart is heavy, but I know her angel watches over all of us who are struggling.
