On Thursday, December 19, 2019, the angels came and quietly escorted Janice Strahan to her Heavenly Home. Janice was born to Henry and Mary Strahan on January 24, 1958 at Mercy Hospital in Toledo, Ohio.

Janice loved the Lord and committed her life to Him as a teenager when she was baptized and accepted Him as her personal Savior. She graduated from Scott High School in 1976. She received her Nurse Aide certification from Scott High.

Janice’s first job was at Smith’s Confectionery which was owned by her uncle and aunt. She worked at Ashland Food Center and Frostbite. Later she began keeping records for her father, Homer’s construction business and caring for all of the babies born into the family.

Janice loved spending time with her family; especially her children and granddaughter. She enjoyed shopping at Shipshewana and Eastern Market in Detroit. She also liked going to the Casino to eat at the buffet and try her luck on the machines. Janice was an inspiration to others as she always had kind and comforting words for them. Her favorite little personal treats were Pepsi and Juicy Fruit gum.

Janice was preceded in death by her fathers, Henry Strahan, Sr., and Homer Williams, Jr. “Daddy” and a special uncle, Willie Smith.

She is lovingly survived by her children, John L. Lanford II “Man” and Jessica Lynette Strahan “Sugar Mama”; granddaughter, Jhasmere Lanford and her granddog, Blue; siblings: Jewel Strahan, Henry Jr. “Butch” (Earnesteen) Strahan, Denise and Shirlyn Strahan, Rozalyn (William) Wilson, Justina Williams and Charles (Sharonda) Stimmage; bonus siblings: Gary, Shirley, Sheila, Indiola, Anna Jean, Homer III, Victor and Denise Williams; special aunt, Willie Mae Smith “Mae Mae”; Godsisters: Leslye Colbert- Jones “Bunny”, Deborah Stewart “Debbie” and Camille (Mark) Lockett; many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Hey Sissy, I’m missing you so much. You left me so suddenly and it’s still doesn’t seem real. I know you are with your Savior and he’s probably telling you to stop popping that gum. You were not only my sister you were my friend. So you rest well my sweet baby. Love you so much. Your big sister 😘

My heart is heavy, my head is thobbing. One of the best sisters in the world left me on December 19th. I will cherish all the moments we had together. I will always remember everything you instilled in me. I will take all the joy and happiness that you gave and pass it on to my kids. The love you gave and showed me can never be replaced. Janice you were more than a sister to me you were my strengthen, encouragement, laughter and joy. You will truly be missed not only in my heart, but everyday. I love and miss you! - Your sister Debbie
