Leave Condolences

To say that Janice was "one of a kind" would be a trite understatement! Her humor and her heart of gold will be remembered by all who knew her. May she rest in peace. With condolences and prayers to all the family. Woody and Teresa Woodall

Jan was my teacher at Trigg County Schools, my supervisor at Social Services, my co-worker at the Big House, and a wonderful friend throughout all of those years. She was a kind, gentle spirit and will be missed by many. Hugs and prayers for her family.
