“Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all. Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised” Proverbs 31:29-30

Janice Lynn Wills or Mom is what we called her was born on August 22nd 1956. She is the 2nd eldest of 5 children and the only girl. Mom had an amazing spirit she was always making us laugh. Her natural reactions to things used to crack us up all the time. Mom always liked to have fun, but I think that was just our Wills family way. She loved football mostly. “Go Steelers” she would say. Growing up around all boys there was no wonder why she was so knowledgeable about the game. Mom had a really beautiful heart she loved and took care of everyone around us. You could always count on her to give you really good advice or even if you just needed someone to listen to you she was there. Our time spent as a family was always memorable and full of love and happiness.

She will be missed by her kids, Sher'Ree Ray (Ricky Ray) and Darion James Wills, and her Nephew De'Sean Wills whom she also raised. Her grandchildren Bryanna Price (Davawn Price) and Neemah Ray, her great-grandchild Samiah Price, and her 2 living brothers Joe Wills and Charles Wills, along with a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends that became family. The Lord chose to bring her home on May 3rd 2018. We know that she is with her father James Wills and mother Bettye Wills and her 2 brothers Paul Wills and Morgan Wills having a great time. Our family is rejoicing in knowing that our mom heard those words that we should all long to hear from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ "Well done my good and faithful servant" God's timing isn't ours. She accomplished what she was sent to do for the lord. Her job was done here on earth. Now she's flying high in the heavens where she can continue to do as she has always done and that's take care of us. We love you mom.

I worked with your mom, grandmother, sister at Boise Cascade. When I would be in Las Vegas she would always make time for me. We would go out to dinner and share family stories. She was truly an amazing soul with a beautiful heart.
She will be missed

Ms. Janice was truely an amazing woman. I am blessed that I had the opportunity to meet such a great person. She always had advice and knew how to brighten ones day with just her presence. I am deeply saddened that I will no longer be able to see her or hear her voice, but I am at peace knowing we shared some great memories and had some heart to heart moments. She touched many hearts during her time here with us. This is such a great loss for us but a wonderful gain for the Heavens above. I know she is hand in hand with those she lost. She is now the guardian angel for those she has left behind. Janice will be forever missed by many. You will never be forgotten.

When coworkers turn into good friends, more like family. You were like a second Mom to me, always treated me like I was one of your own. I will miss our talks, your sound advice, lunches together, laughing & clowning, the delicious birthday cakes you made me throughout the years, happy hour, our potlucks, but most of all, I will miss YOU. Not a day goes by without thinking of you. I love and miss you immensely! You'll always have a special place in my heart. Rest well, Ma...

I was blessed to call you my Grandma. The love and care you had for people, was only something God could have created. I can hear you now asking "How are you and your mom doing?". I know you are resting peacefully now. I love you so much, and miss you tremendously. We have another angel watching over us now.

I love you.

You have always been such a support system for my mother. It always gave me comfort to know how close you two were and how happy I was to be your Godson because my mother couldn't have chosen a better woman than you. After coming to visit us a few months ago, you cried as we hugged eachother goodbye and you promised me to continue to take care and protect my mom...that's a promise I know I'll keep.
We are forever grateful for you and we love you always.

I thank God for you. You are my cousin but you are more my sister. Thank you for always being there for me when I needed to vent, cry or just wanted to talk. We had so many conversation on getting our passports so when you retire we were going to start traveling. Our first trip was to Belize.. Oh, how I miss our talks. I'm so happy that each time before we end our conversation we would always say I love you.
I love you Jan. I miss you. I know you in heaven with the rest of the Wills family. You will always be in my heart.

Love you sis
