Janice Louise Summers, 79, of Fayetteville, Georgia, passed away peacefully on Thursday, May 5, 2022 after a prolonged illness. Born on Friday June 11, 1942 in Pine Mountain Valley, Georgia to Ansel and Dee Story Sensing, she was the youngest of thirteen children.
Janice was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Leon Eugene Summers; her grandson Michael Summers; and her twelve siblings. Widowed for over 20 years, Janice missed Leon – her partner, boyfriend and the love of her life – very much. She is survived by her sons Scott (Carie) Summers and Shawn Summers; her granddaughter Hillary Summers (Robert Hudson); her grandson Matthew (Tia) Summers; and her great-grandson Leon Michael Summers; along with many nieces and nephews.
Janice was incredibly family oriented. She loved spending time with her children and grandchildren and had a crush on her great-grandson Leon. Janice had close family relationships with her parents and siblings, as well as her nieces and nephews. She also had a circle of friends and neighbors whose company she enjoyed.
Janice was sharp-witted, civic-minded, and loved to shoot targets. She was an excellent cook and enjoyed gardening and mowing the grass. In her later years, she enjoyed watching old game shows and true crime stories. Janice has had and loved many pets over the years.
