Janice Faye Jenkins was born on April 20, 1951, in Lebanon, Tennessee, to the late Johnnie Clifton Culbreath and Allie Doin Grisham Culbreath. Janice was saved on Sunday, September 3, 1961. She was baptized into South Carthage Missionary Baptist Church by Elder Phocian Gibbs. A few years later, her family moved to Lafayette and Janice moved her membership to Lafayette Missionary Baptist Church. She loved attending church and was a faithful member as long as her health permitted.

Janice was an office administrator at Columbia Gulf until she retired in 2005. She was a dedicated employee for thirty-two years. In her spare time, she enjoyed going to the lake, working in the yard, and playing with her animals. Most of all, Janice loved spending time with her family, grandkids, and great-grandkids. On Thursday, August 3, 2023, at the age of seventy-two years, three months, and fourteen days, Janice was carried by the Angels to her Heavenly Reward.
