On Tuesday evening, January 10, 2023, our sweet precious mom, grandmother, honey, and sister, and beloved friend to many, slipped these surly bonds of earth and moved to her heavenly home. After a long and courageous battle with lung cancer, winning was not to be; she died peacefully, surrounded by love.
Our hearts are broken, but we take comfort in knowing she is in the hands of God and reunited with loved ones who have gone before and knowing that someday we will be reunited with her and other loved ones in heaven.
Those who have gone before her are sons Roger Bradberry, Arthur Giambrone Jr., and Steve Bradberry. Grandson, Blake Bradberry, parents, Holt and Vivian Richey, and brother, Tim Richey.
She was loved and adored by her survivors; sons Rick Bradberry (Heather), Fultondale, AL, and Jeff Bradberry (Cassandra), Houston, Texas. Sister, Linda Patton (Frank), Morris, AL. Grandchildren, Krista Bradberry, Ricky Bradberry, Marshall Bradberry, Brianna Bradberry, Don Bradberry. Grandchildren in love, Hannah Baker, Keegan Hoagland, and Justin Fitzgerald. Great grandchildren, Tripp Smith, Kason Vaughn, Dax Bradberry, Hadleigh Bradberry, and great-grandson in love, Darren Dickinson. She was known as “Grandmother” and “Honey” to so many who loved her and grew up with her grandchildren.
Janice had a kind and loving heart and showered her family and friends with love and devotion. She was always available to listen to any problem and offer help when needed. She was a person that you could share any personal information or secret with her and know it was locked in the vault, never to be disclosed. If anyone had a question for her, she had an answer or would always seem to be able to find an answer for them. She was a friend to so many who loved her.
When we lose a loved one, we cling to our special memories. It’s the unforgettable moments that touch and shape us into who we are today. We have so many precious memories of this incredible woman that we will carry in our hearts forever. “To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.”
The family wishes to extend our deepest gratitude for the loving care she received from Hope Hospice, especially her nurse, our angel, Pam Love.
