janice and I have been friends and neighbors for a very long time. She was such an inspiration to me and Jack in so many ways - always willing to help. When Jack was in the hospital nd I was unable to be with him, she took my place and always with her sweet smile . She was my angel on earth and now I know she is with Jesus and is happy.

Anita and I have our happy place up the street from Martin and always got a smile and a wave whenever the “ beachcrsr” came around the corner headed for her Pirateland
home. We are very saddened at her passing and offer our condolences to Van and the rest of her family. Aufwiedersehen, Martin

We're so sad at the passing of our very dear friend Janice. We've known Janice for many years having been her neighbor at Myrtle Beach. Always smiling and friendly and so courageous through her illness. What an inspiration! We always looked forward to seeing her when we came to Myrtle Beach. She will be missed and remembered by her family and many friends. We know the Lord is holding her in His arms. Our sincere condolences to Janice's family.

I remember with great fondness meeting and working with Janice at West Charlotte High School back in 1970. She was young and passionate about teaching at WC like many of the rest of us newly hired and just graduated from college newbies assigned the task to help integrate the formerly all black school. We all worked hard, and became proud Lions. Some of the best teachers in CMS started at WC and ended up spread out in many different schools over the years, Janice and I enjoyed many of the same friends and I will say we went to several of the same parties back in the day. We all were so young and full of hope and tried to make a positive statement regarding students being bussed to help with integration in Charlotte. Our students were great and and worked hard to have their new school have a successful first year. I have not seen Janice much over the past 40 years but kept up with her through friends who taught with her. I shall always remember her and those first years at West Charlotte and the great experiment we participated in together. Go Lions.

I feel so blessed to have known Martin through my sister in-law, Carol. She was always up to having a good time. We had a few good laughs celebrating my 65th birthday with Carol. The beach was truly her happy place no matter what. I will treasure your memory until we meet again my friend.

We are deeply saddened by the passing of Janice “Martin”. We all remember the Elvis birthday party that was held in Vanceboro as “Taylor” is a huge Elvis fan and we were all dressed to the hilt. We all had a blast. She brought many so much joy. She certainly will be missed by all of her coworkers and all that had the pleasure of being in her presence.
Fly high “Martin”🙏
