Janice Elaine (Mason) Wheeler, daughter of Lynn Leroy Mason and Wanda Elaine (Bashor) Mason, was born September 9th, 1947 in DeKalb County, Missouri. She left this earth and walked into the arms of the Lord on April 29th, 2017, at the age of 69, while being surrounded by family and those that cared for and loved her at Webco Manor Nursing Home.
Janice loved her family, knitting and crocheting, sewing, her cats (Emmy and Otis), and watching over those around her. She made sure that even those with no voices knew that they weren’t alone. She took those with limited memory under her wing, and helped to remind them of how to live life. She encouraged everyone around her, and was loved by all.
Preceding her in death was her father, Lynn Mason, and her brother, Roger Mason.
Janice is survived by her mother, Wanda Mason of Marshfield, MO; her daughter, Denise Lewis and husband, Carl, of Marshfield, MO; her granddaughter Jessica Satterfield and husband, Matt, of Marshfield, MO; her great-granddaughter, Sophia Satterfield, of Marshfield, MO; two sisters, Martha Jones and husband, Everett, of Grovespring, MO, and Raylene Mason, of Platte City, MO; along with a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
A celebration of life is planned for 7:00 p.m. on May 2nd, at Fraker Funeral Home, Marshfield, with a private burial to be planned for a later date at Eureka Cemetery, Niangua, MO.
