Janice Marie Wilson

December 20, 1945 — June 20, 2024

Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Janice Marie Wilson, 78, passed peacefully surrounded by her family on June 20, 2024. Visitation will be Saturday, June 22, 2024, from 2:00-4:00 p.m. followed immediately by her Memorial Service at 4:00 p.m. at St. Andrew’s United Methodist Church, 17510 Monitor Avenue in Baton Rouge. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to St. Andrew’s United Methodist Church.

 Janice is survived by her loving and adoring husband, Bobby L. Wilson; daughter, Amy Arnold (husband: Steve, grandchildren: Hope Arnold, Hannah and Stephanie Arnold, and Luke Arnold); son, Jason Wilson (wife: Katherine, grandchildren: Chase and Becca Wilson, Cole and Rachel Wilson, great grandchildren: Henry Oliver Wilson and Jackson Jude Wilson); son, Marc Wilson (wife: Jeannie, grandchildren: Taylor Wilson, Brooke and Grant Wilson-Schexnailder); siblings: Marshall Havens, Jo Dumas, Patricia Anderson, Beverly Joy, Cynthia Heard, Linda Cooley and numerous beloved nieces and nephews. Janice was preceded in death by her mother, Arlene Viola Havens.

 Janice had an abiding faith and love of God. Janice’s greatest accomplishments were her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, instilling values in them with her adoring husband, Bob. Janice, affectionately known as “Nana” by her grandchildren and great-grandchildren embodied the values of generosity, selflessness, service and care for others, courage and determination. All who knew Jan knew her servant’s heart and always believing others’ needs were greater than her own. Janice was a loving, selfless, and prayerful devoted Christian.

 After retiring from Louisiana State service, she volunteered tirelessly for her church, St. Andrew’s UMC. Bishop Robert Muench of the Baton Rouge Diocese presented Janice with the “Be a Light” award for her work with the cookbook committee and for her content contributions to St. Vincent de Paul’s cookbook, Taste and See, including 21 of her favorite recipes - sharing her love language of nourishing others.

 Family and friends may sign the online guestbook or leave a personal note to the family at www.resthavenbatonrouge.com
