Janice Boynton

Janice Johnson Boynton, 82, of Dunlap died peacefully on Sunday, September 14, 2015. 

She was a faithful member of Dunlap church of Christ for 70 years. She was born June 9, 1933 and spent her entire life in the beautiful Sequatchie Valley. She retired from the Department of Human Services after 25 years.

She was a precious blessing to her family and to all who knew her. She taught her children by example how to love and respect your spouse, how to love your children and how to be the kind of a parent and person God expects us to be. She was the most selfless person we have ever known, always had a smile on her face and was happiest putting others first.

She was a Christian first and foremost and it was evident by how she lived her life. Anyone who knew her always saw her kindness and her beautiful smile. Our lives will have an empty place without her here but how thankful we are to have the precious memories of such a wonderful mother, grandmother, sister and friend.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 51 years, Frankie Boynton; and parents, Quay and Mable Hudson Johnson.

Janice is survived by her three children who adored her, Joy (Al) Simmons and Tina (Rickey) Hickman, both of Dunlap, Stanley (Shirley) Boynton, Hendersonville; she was cherished by her grandchildren, Leah (Keith) Herron, Courtney (Kerry) West, Aaron Simmons, Conner Boynton and Savannah Hickman; four great-grandchildren, Kaylor and Channing West, John Jackson and Carolina Herron; two sisters, Anita (John) Luther, Dickson and Deanna (Howard) Wilson, Lebanon, and three nieces.

Funeral services were held Wednesday, September  16 in the funeral home chapel with Bro. Freddie Clayton officiating. Burial was in Johnson-Lewis Cemetery. 

Serving as pallbearers were Rickey Hickman, Al and Aaron Simmons, Conner Boynton, Keith Herron and Kerry West.
