Janice Elise Williamson

Smokey the cat, country buffets, The Voice, Little Debbie Cakes, The Bachelor, Pitbull, truck stops, and Percy Sledge... these were her favorites. Always sweetly quiet and shy, Janice’s special gift was making people laugh with her stories and texts, which were at times, just a little on the naughty side. She had a generous and giving spirit, and she will forever be missed.
Preceding her in death were her parents, John Wilmer and Maudie Smith Williamson of Ellisville, her oldest sister, Betty Jean Cook Rowell and husband John Rowell of Seminary.

Janice is survived by her sister, Barbara Cook Sanford and the late Sidney Sanford of Picayune, sister, Sandra Williamson Scruggs and husband Mitchell of Ellisville, nephews, Roger Sanford and wife Sylvia of The Woodlands, Texas. Johnny Rowell and wife Debbie of Ellisville, niece, Beverly Sanford Patterson and her late husband Anthony Patterson of Pensacola, and nephews, Ronnie Sanford and wife Tessa of Picayune, Randy Sanford and wife Lisa of Waveland.

Janice is also survived by many great nieces and nephews, great-great nieces, cousins and special friends. She passed away on what would have been her parents’ 70th wedding anniversary. She was a member of Lowery Creek Baptist Church.
