OBITUARY

Janice Annette Lemons

September 22, 1942March 23, 2020

Janice Annette Lemons (Helmers) 1942 – 2020 Colorado City – Jan, 77, passed away peacefully in Lubbock with her loving family by her side on Monday, March 23, 2020. Born to Arno and Mildred Helmers in San Angelo, Texas on September 22, 1942, Jan graduated from Gradwohl School of Medical Technology in St. Louis, Missouri. She married Bobby Lemons on June 9, 1962 in McCamey, Texas. Jan was a lab technician, business owner (Montgomery Wards), community servant, devoted wife and loving mother. Anyone who knew Jan (and she rarely met a stranger) knows what an amazing person she was. She truly had a servant’s heart and devoted her life to helping those around her. Through her various activities with church and community organizations, Jan made sure those who needed clothing had clothing, those who needed food had food, and those who needed emotional support had emotional support. Even in her final hours, she spent most of her time thanking the doctors and nurses and praying for many of those in her life. It goes without saying that she will be dearly missed by her family, friends, and community. She is survived by husband Bobby Lemons of Colorado City, daughter Dawn and husband Britt Chaney of Lubbock, son Robert and wife Amber Lemons of Stephenville, son Blaine and wife Janine Lemons of Colorado City, grandchildren Tyler and wife Whitney Chaney, Kyle Lemons, Casie and husband Kyler Free, Courtney and husband Taylor Sims, Reed Lemons, and Cade Lemons, great grandchild Collins Free, “adopted” children Sam Metzger, Bryan Stone, Lauran and husband Hunter Cox, Kaylen Carter, brother Stanley and wife Nelda Helmers, sister Arna and husband Glenn McCorkle, brother-in-law Billy Jacobs, brother-in-law Hurston Lemons, and several nieces, nephews, and cousins. Many beloved friends are also left behind to cherish her memory. Jan was preceded in death by her parents and brother, Johnny Helmers. Funeral services will be postponed at this time due to the current circumstances. A celebration of life memorial will be held at a later, to-be-determined date. In lieu of flowers, please consider a memorial contribution to Christmas-In-Action at City National Bank of Colorado City, First Baptist Church, or a charity of your choice.

Anthony and I were blessed to know Jan as a mother-in-law to our daughter, Janine. Jan & Bobby were always very gracious to invite us over for a delicious meal every time we visited Blaine & Janine in Colorado City. One of my favorite memories is how Jan took a special interest in helping Kyle & Casie with their 4H show animals, especially their pigs. She was a very involved Memaw! She will be dearly missed.

When I worked as the school nurse in Colorado City I got to really know Jan. I would call her for help with students and she would go above and beyond to make it happen. Not only did she make it happen she did it with no complaints and with a cheerful heart. She was an angel sent to Colorado City. Praying for happy memories to flood friends and family.

When we had our Kiwanianne meetings, Jan would always tell us of someone who was in need--from someone needing a bill paid, children who couldn't afford Christmas for their children, someone in need of dental work, and sometimes she'd be a little late to the meeting because she had to check on someone in need. She was so kind to everyone; I was one of her recipients when my water valve locked up, and the Kiwaniannes paid for it. I wish I could Thank Jan for everything she did for so many of us, and I"ll always miss her.

Jan was such a sweet, giving person. She was invaluable to the C City Opry and was a staunch supporter. She always had a smile on her face and I don't believe I ever heard her say a bad thing about anyone. She did so much for C City and her passing will leave a large void. I will certainly miss her but I also know where she is now, a reward she certainly deserves. Prayers for peace and comfort for the family.
