Obituary for Janice Lane Nation

Janice Walker Nation, age 80, died on Sunday, September 3, 2017 at Kitty Askins Hospice Center surrounded by family. She was born in LaGrange, North Carolina to the late Luna and Wilbur Lane. Janice enjoyed working as Office Manager and Bookkeeper alongside her husband, Roy G. Nation, Sr., M.D. Together, they also built and managed a successful hog farming operation for many years.

Janice was known for her exceptional singing voice, impeccable sense of style, sass, and commanding presence. She always wore high heels and bright red lipstick. Janice was loved by many friends, church family, community members, and her family. She was a faithful member of Freedom Baptist Church and she enjoyed teaching Sunday school through the years. Janice carried a compassion for all around her, and shared a love for animals, especially her grand-dogs, Buster and Tucker. She loved to garden, sing in the choir, and always put her family first. She will be greatly missed.

Janice is survived by her children, Donald Garrett Walker and Karen Vinson; grandchildren Becky Vinson, Michelle Perkins Cianfarra, April Lenker, Leslie Walker, Sarah Walker Gambella, and Danielle Grant; great grandchildren Jimmy Graham, Karena Vinson, Brianna Perkins, Keller, Emerson and Avery Lenker, and Hannah Grant; siblings Joyce Mansfield, Faith Lancaster, Kenneth Lane, JW Lane, Max Lane; nieces, nephews, and many friends.

She was preceded in death by her husband Roy G. Nation, Sr., M.D., parents Luna and Wilbur Lane, sisters Myrtle, Francis, and Louise.

We would like to express a special “Thank You” to the awesome staff at Kitty Askins Hospice Center for the love, care and compassion provided for Janice, our mother and grandmother, and her family during her final days. We cannot express into words how much we appreciate each and every one of you.
