Janice was a lifelong resident of Coeburn, living in Wise and Dickenson Counties. She always enjoyed her family and friends and being involved in her community.
She helped operate the family-owned business Marshall’s Department Store in Coeburn for several years. Her love of antiques prompted the opening of two businesses, the first in Coeburn and the second in Appalachia. Friendships established during this time remain to this day.
Janice loved “BIG” and enjoyed life, her family was first and knew they were loved. She made everyone feel welcome and her door was always open. Janice was gifted with a natural ability to embrace her family and friends with genuine empathy and sensitivity for their every need. She made herself available without reservation. Her smiles, hugs, sense of humor, wit, and most of all her love will greatly missed. Jan was a blessing to all that knew her.
