Janice Harwell Sullivan, 67, of Louisville, passed away on May 14, 2020. She was born in Ward, Alabama on January 18, 1953 to the late Thomas Melvin and Dorothy “Sybil” Harwell. She was a dedicated teacher at Mother of Good Counsel and St. Mary’s Academy for over 33 years. She touched the lives of many students and developed close relationships with so many teachers along the way. She was always so proud of her student’s successes and catching up on their progress with their parents. Janice loved the outdoors and checking on the wildlife that visited behind the house. She loved gardening, the beach and may have been happiest when she was fishing off the dock at the cabin. She was always on the move, never sat still and called visiting Kroger her “happy hour” for the many students’ parents that she would encounter. She was a fantastic mother and grandmother. Her grandkids adored their “Nanice”. She will be so greatly missed. Janice was preceded in passing by her parents; and her sister, Kaye Jones. She is survived by her loving husband of 43 years, Bart Sullivan; children, Ryan Sullivan (Rachel), Rush Sullivan (Dani), and Holly Flowers (Daniel); grandchildren, Rush, Holland, Jackson, and Layla; siblings, Tommy Harwell (Jean), Faye Harwell, and Charles Harwell (Stephanie).

Social distancing rules will be observed and additional instruction will be provided upon arrival. Attendees are encouraged to wear a mask. A private family service will follow after.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I never had the pleasure of meeting your wife but I feel that I know her from the conversations and stories that you have shared with us. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you.

I was so sorry to hear of Janice's death. She was my first cousin on the Hearn side of the family (Sybil was my dad's sister). We lost contact over the years but I always remember the fun times we had in Ward, Alabama. I wish all of God's comfort for you during this difficult time.

This world has lost a wonderful woman. While it wasn't often enough, the times we spent with Bart and Janice were always fun and filled with laughter. She always made you feel so welcome. She loved her family and grand babies and would talk of them often. Our prayers and hearts are with you Bart and with your family.

I was lucky enough to have Mrs. Sullivan for 3rd and 8th grade. She loved her students and always arrived in the classroom with a warm smile. She cared about the success of each and every one of her students, both inside and outside of the classroom. She became not only my teacher, but a family friend. Just a few months ago we ran into her at Kroger and even though we hadn’t spoken since I graduated, she still had that warm smile on her face. She will be missed by everyone whose lives she touched. Your family has my sympathy and prayers.

Janice was a special person .I worked with her at MGC and she taught computer to my son there. As the years passed our paths all crossed again at St. Mary's. She always loved my son and when he came through to see the school she stopped her class and embraced him as she did many time after that to him and Me ,plus telling my grand daughter that her Daddy and Grandma were friends of hers . She beamed of pride when Janice would sub in her class and could come home and tell her Daddy that she had Mrs Sullivan teach her that day . What a positive mark she left on so many . Such a sad day for all who knew her , for we will be left to miss her . Rest in peace Janice !

Mrs. Sullivan was my daughter's second grade teacher. She was absolutely THE best teacher at MGC. I am so sorry to hear of her passing. Maybe comfort can be found in that so many of her students and parents remember her so fondly. May she rest in peace.
