Janice Jane Faulk, 66, Maryville, Missouri, formerly of Mesa, Arizona, passed from this earth into the arms of our father in heaven Tuesday, November 13, 2012, at Heartland Regional Medical Center, Saint Joseph, Missouri.
She was born, January 29, 1946, in Mount Vernon, Illinois, the daughter of Thadues Pearl and Margaret Ivy Collins Penrod.
On April 29, 1963 she married Daniel L. Faulk in Del Rio, Texas.
Janice was a devoted member of the Central Chrisitan Church East Valley.
Prior to her retirement, she was employed as a production supervisor with Microchip Technology, Inc., Chandler, Arizona and Intsys Technologies, Mesa, Arizona.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her stepfather Roy E. Collins;
her sisters Sylvia I. Hill and Leota L. Morrison, and her brother, Jimmy D. Penrod, Sr.
She is survived by her husband, Daniel Faulk, Maryville, Missouri; her daughters Diana L. Haggard, Maryville, Mo, and Melisasa A, Bradley, Sun Lakes, Arizona; her sister Frances Gail Richmond, Maricopa, Arizona; her three granddaughters Stefanie Hewes, Christina Bradley, and Caitlyn Bradley; her two grandsons, Brandon Quarles and Trenton Bradley; her three great grandsons, Caden and Caleb Hewes, and Evan Bradley, and numerous nieces and nephews.
She was a nature lover and a lover of every animal, no matter how big or small, ugly or beautiful. Her feline children Brandy, Munchkin, Baby, and Charlie miss her deeply.
She was a very special and unique person to so many. Her passing has left a void that will never be refilled.
She was a loving and caring woman who devoted her love and her life to her husband and her family, never once thinking of herself.
Her final wishes were to be cremated with her ashes to be spread over the Superstition Mountains in Arizona.
A private memorial service will be held at the family home in Maryville at a later date.
