Janice Jones Obituary

Janice Lynn Jones of Hodgenville, passed away unexpectedly, surrounded by her family, on December 7, 2023, at Baptist Health Hardin at the age of 78. 

Janice was born May 26, 1945, to the late William Lloyd and Allean W.  “Hanner” Skaggs.  Many roles were held by Janice, including loving mom, mamaw, great-mamaw, sister, cousin, and friend.  As a mom and mamaw, she spoiled her family with the best homemade lasagna, Derby pie, toast with butter and jelly, pumpkin pie, laundry tips, last-minute sewing needs and all her kindness, thoughtfulness and love.  “Ms. Janice” touched the lives of over 400 children and their families during her time as a Kindergarten assistant at Hodgenville Elementary.   She enjoyed spending time with her family, watching her favorite TV shows and discussing them with her sister, getting her hair and nails done, being outside growing the most beautiful flowers and elephant ears and had recently become  “the neighborhood skunk-watcher.”  Her family and friends will miss the time spent talking on the phone and playfully teasing her about her Southern drawl. 

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by a grandson, Trenton Thomas Watson.

Janice is survived by her daughter, Tracy (Cale) Tharp; a sister, Madonna (Joe) Shanks; a nephew, Greg Mayfield; an aunt, Mary Kennady; her grandchildren, Allie (Adam) Shewmaker, Chase Watson, Aletha Bault, Calea (Preston) Howell, Ethan Tharp, Dustin (Chelsea) Tharp and Brooke Tharp; her great-grandchildren, Janie and Mattie Shewmaker, Addie Howell, Harper and Hadley Bault and Addilynn Hibbard and several cousins.

Funeral services will be held 11 a.m. Monday, December 11, at Bennett-Bertram Funeral Home in Hodgenville with Cale Tharp and Bros. Rodney Rogers and Sid Lewis officiating. Burial will follow in Red Hill Cemetery.

Visitation will be from 1 to 6 p.m. Sunday and after 9 a.m. Monday at the funeral home.
