Leave Condolences

Janice and I became friends at Murray our first two years as we lived in rooms next to each other in Woods Hall. I came to know her friends from Cadiz, including Charlotte, Mimi, Wanda and Suzy and enjoyed them all. Janice gave me a book when she left Murray in December 1970, called As a Man Thinketh and began the inscription with To Susan- a fellow "thinker and philosopher". I appreciated so many of Janice's attributes, and her desire to think and be philosophical were two I most enjoyed. We also had a lot of great card games (Rook?) on Saturday mornings in the dorm. Although we have been separated by many miles since college graduation, we have stayed in touch over the last 40 years and I know how much Janice loved her family and friends, especially Larry, Johnston,and her 2 grandchildren ( and daughter-in-law, sorry do not know your name). I'm glad she had a few years in Bowling Green where she was closer to her family. Several years ago I was involved in an auto accident and wound up in the dr's office in Cadiz. Janice and Larry came and held my hand while the dr. stitched up the open wound in my head. Janice had a big heart and was always there with a willingness to listen and offer to help in any way she could. I know Janice is with our Saviour now. I will miss her tremendously and the yearly emails or visits with her. Larry, I will keep you and yours in prayer as you continue your daily walk with Janice close to your heart. I would love to hear from any of Janice's friends if you see this message......you can find me on Facebook.

Janice and I worked together in the FRYSC. She was a wonderful woman who impacted the lives of many through the work she did. I join you in the celebration of her life. May she continue to be an inspiration to all who knew her.

We are so sorry for your loss Larry. Our prayers are being lifted for your peace.

Dear Larry, I am so deeply sorry for your loss. Janice made a huge positive difference in the lives of those she touched, and so have and so do you. My prayers are with you and all of yours and Janice's family. Lana

Please know that our deepest sympathy is with you at this time. I have so many fond memories of working with Janice at Trigg County Schools. She always had a love and passion for our students and went out of her way to provide the best for them. May the Lord give you comfort and peace during this time.
