Janice was born on Aug. 10, 1950, in Franklin, Virginia, to the late Elizabeth Howell Cutchins.

Together with her husband Stancil, they built a life that included their two children, Jill Thorpe and Dustin Lanier. Janice and her family enjoyed many years of family vacations, especially on the Eastern Shore and Myrtle Beach, fishing and enjoying time on the beach or by the pool.

Janice is survived by her faithful, loving husband and caretaker of 49 years, Stancil Lanier; daughter, Jill Lanier Thorpe (George Lee); son, Dustin Earl Lanier (Staci); and grandchildren Haleigh, Lee and Carter.

Special thanks go out to our extended family member and caretaker, Laura Barnes.

The graveside service will be on Monday, Nov. 11, at 2 p.m., in Poplar Spring Cemetery with the Rev. Penny Rasnake officiating.
