Janice loved Jesus & Elvis! She was so sincerely dedicated to the Lord and loved going to church and carried her Bible every time she entered the doors. She participated in the Prims program at Osage Beach First Assembly of God and was so proud of the badges she earned from some scripture memorization and other activities. She impressed us all with her memorization of the Lord’s Prayer. She loved making friends and would commonly shake hands and promptly tell you her birthday was “July 25th”. Her love for Elvis and her self-advertising of her birthday meant she commonly received many Elvis gifts and greeting cards for her special day. She filled many of her days making yarn covered hangers for the special people in her life.
Visitation will be Monday, January 7, 2019 from 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM at the Osage Beach First Assembly of God Church with the Funeral Service beginning at 1:00 PM with Rev. Dwin Ollison and Rev. Tim Anna officiating. Burial will follow at Greenmore Memorial Gardens in Barnett, MO.
Memorials in her name are suggested to the Braun Homes of Fayette, MO.
Arrangements are under the direction and care of Phillips Funeral Home of Eldon, MO.
