Janice was a dedicated and faithful Christian for 58 years, serving as a 5-year-old Sunday school teacher at Sumiton Church of God for 30 years. She was a Children’s Church Leader at Faith Worship Center for the past five years as well as a faithful prayer leader and Christian witness. Janice and Mary Barton started Kiddie College Kindergarten at Sumiton Church of God in 1976. The kindergarten then became Pathway Christian School, then renamed Sumiton Christian School in 1983. She taught 5-year-old kindergarten for a total of 28 years until her health prevented her from doing so. To her, teaching was a ministry for God. Janice touched many lives educationally, morally and spiritually during her years of teaching. Through her times of ailments and pain, her faith in God never wavered. She is now healed for evermore.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Dillard and Ershel (Morgan) Goggins of Sumiton.
She is survived by her husband of 43 years, Fred Greer; beloved and devoted daughter, Brandi Brown (Robert); grandchildren, Alyssa, Brady and Alayna; brother, Sammy Goggins (Sandra); nephews, Jason and Billy; step-daughters, Tami Greer and Neysa McGee (Darold) and their children and grandchildren.
