    I wish to express my sympathy to all of the family. I graduated with Janice from Rossville High School. She was a wonderful classmate and liked by everyone. I also got the pleasure of working with her at Clinton County Hospital where she worked as a nurse for a period of time. Patients always loved to have her assist them and caring for them prior to there surgical procedure. I always knew that my patients would be well cared for and comforted by her. I’m sure she will be greatly missed by her family and friends. It is a comfort to know that she is In the arms of Jesus. May God fill the loss and comfort the grieving hearts. You are in my prayers.

    I grew up 1/4 mile from the Calverts. We could see their house from ours across the field. We went over there for visits. Janice and I were in the same class at Rossville. The last time I saw her was at our 50th class reunion in 2018. I tracked her down to let her know about the reunion. I am glad I did. She and her family loved the Lord. She will be missed. She went home to be with the Lord far too soon, but I know she is in a better place.

  28. Lynette Hardesty April 8, 2021 at 6:08 pm

    Janice & I worked together as nurses. She was so kind & caring to everyone. May God’s peace & love surround all of you. Lynette Hardesty
