January 8, 1939 - January 2, 2018
Janice Lee McKinney, of Terrell passed away peacefully Tuesday January 2, 2018 surrounded by her family. She was born January 8, 1939 in Charleston, Tx to the late Guy and Leo Viser. She graduated Cooper High School and married her childhood sweetheart Hershel Ray McKinney on June 16, 1956 in Charleston. Growing up in a small town surrounded by friends and family gave Janice her wonderful personality of kindness and generosity. She always believed that each person was meant to help others as they served the Lord and she was a faithful and committed friend to all who met her. Being a wife and a mother were the priorities that Janice held above all others and making sure that her family was cared for in every way gave daily example to her husband and children of how her love was unwavering for each of them. When she and Herschel moved to Terrell she worked for, and retired from, the Terrell State Hospital where for years she was able to brighten day of so many she worked with and for. Janice was an active and devoted member of The First United Methodist Church of Terrell where, again, she treasured the chance of showing the Lord’s love and comfort as she assisted families during a time of need with the church’s Bereavement Committee until her health began to decline. A true Proverbs 31 woman inside and out, Janice will be missed by all who knew her. Janice was welcomed into Heaven by her Lord and Savior and reunited with her beloved husband of 52 years Hershel McKinney and her parents. Her memory will be cherished forever by her daughters: Pam Bond and her husband Phil of Terrell and Sonja Desmond and her husband David of Heath; grandchildren: Jeni Evans and husband Tommy, Jarrod Bond and wife Sydney, Peyton Desmond and wife Emily and Jordan Desmond and wife Kelli; great grandchildren: Sean, Shayde, Simone and Karis; sisters-in-law: Evelyn Manes and Carlie Penson as well as numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives, church family and a host of friends.
