Janice went to be with her Lord and Savior on May 29, 2020, surrounded by her loving family. She was preceded in death by her parents, Clinton and Ocie Miller, brothers RB Miller and Billy Joe Miller and sisters, Becky Ellis and Loretta Jarman.
A loving wife and homemaker, Janice was a remarkable cook and enjoyed preparing meals for her family. She was a selfless, God fearing woman who always put others first. Her greatest love was her family and her children were proud to call her "Mama". Her grandchildren lovingly referred to her as Gran and can recount many wonderful memories spent together at Gran's. Janice was a member of Lone Oak Baptist Church.
She is survived by her devoted husband of 54 years, David Trotter, and her daughters Donna (Tim) Rye, Lisa(Harry)Neal, Stacie (Greg) Williams, and Stephanie (Jeremy) Lobdell as well as her niece Tammy Ellis who was more like a daughter, grandchildren Casey (Megan) Williams, Evan Williams, Daniel Lobdell, Sadie Rye, Michael Lobdell, Nick Rye, Emily Rye, Katie Rose Neal, Jocie Lobdell and Joseph Neal (Katrina). She also leaves behind two brothers and one sister as well as many nieces and nephews.
Janice's grandsons will serve as pallbearers and her son-in-laws as honorary pallbearers.
