Meeting the love of her life, Porter L. Faulkner, they married in 1951 and set out to start their lives together.

Out of all of the rolls she was tasked to fulfill in her life she excelled at taking care of and loving her husband and family. Her personality had many facets and ranged from serious to comical, stern to compassionate, wise to silly. We all learned so much from her either by her teaching us or just observing her.

Janice, as she was know in Jacksonville 1st SDA Church. was a dear, and faithful member. I am also a member. When she live off Fouraker, she would pick me up, and go to Pauline Silcox, for lunch, and we would have long telephone conversations. I admired, how she was always well dressed, and oh so pleasant. I missed her, when got ill, and have to move to be near family. Rest well my friend, there is a resurrection.
