Janice was a loving wife, mother and grandmother whose faith guided her daily. When her grandchildren would visit, she wanted
their time at her house to be special. Taking them on adventures and creating memories that would be with them forever. She was Aunt
Jan to eight nieces, two nephews, ten great-nieces and four great-nephews and Mrs. Jan to many others.
She was a great cook and loved preparing meals for her family and those in need. Her kindness and love for others was ever present
in her life. She spent countless hours praying for her children, grandchildren, family and friends. She was our Momma,
Gigi, Grammy, our counselor, teacher and best friend. We will forever have a hole in our hearts that can only be filled with the love and
mercy of our Heavenly Father and the joy that we will see her again in Heaven. “Her children arise up and
call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.” Proverbs 31:28

Due to the current pandemic for the safety of everyone, there will be no visitation before the service.
