Janice Lovick Thomas, 89, died Jan. 30, 2020. Born in Cumberland County, N.C., to Walter A. and Margaret W. Lovick, she is preceded in death by her husband, Sidney C. Thomas. She is survived by her son, Sid Thomas Jr. (Melissa); daughters, Nancy Thomas Gates (Burhman) and Rosemary Thomas Boles (Johnny); grandsons Austin Jordan and Jacob Thomas, and Cameron L.

Janice loved her family and her many friends, and the Suffolk Presbyterian Church, where she was the organist for many years. She was a very kind and beautiful person both inside and out. Janice was an elementary school teacher in North Carolina and South Carolina during her working years. She touched everyone she met with her gentle way, kind heart, and the brightest, most loving smile ever seen. Janice made this world a better place and will be greatly missed.

A graveside service will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 8, 2020, at the Old Bluff Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Wade, N.C.
