She lived on Johnson’s Corner for 57 years surrounded by her husband’s family, where she made it her home. Janice was predeceased by her husband, Roy F.

Sandy Martin (Janice) of Culpeper, Va; Robert Martin (Debbie), and Mike Martin (Rita), both of Richardsville, Va. There are too many loving nieces and nephews to list.

Paytes-Tucker (James) of Locust Grove, Va; four grandchildren; Terri Lynn Simmerman (Nathan), Toni Paytes-Bosserman (Jerry), Kelsey Tate Garrison (Michael), and her only grandson, Thomas W. Paytes.
