Janice Slater Maynard

Janice Slater Maynard, formerly of LaFollette, died February 16, 2014 at the home of her son Steven Maynard in the great state of Kentucky.

To borrow the gentle words of Keats, Janice Maynard's life was "a thing of beauty and a joy forever," it goes without saying that, "it will never pass into nothingness".  Janice's soul yielded peacefully to a higher calling.  As a devout Christian, mother and wife of the late Walter Maynard,  she lived her life driven by a deep love for her family and faith.

She will be remembered by her affinity for literature, cooking and the world of nature. She looked to Norris Lake as a source of solace and repose alongside her late husband and avid fisherman, Walter Maynard.

She was the daughter of the late Oliver and Hattie (Lawson) Slater.  She was preceded in death by her husband Walter and siblings Billy Slater, Hubert Slater, Ernestine Mounts, Rudolph Slater and Randolph Slater.  

She is survived by her brother, JD Slater and sister, Noka (Burl) Olaker. She is leaving a very large hole in the hearts of her three children, Patricia (Robert) Chambers, Steven(Leslie) Maynard and David Neal (Sandra) Maynard.  She was loved and admired by her nine grandchildren, Robert Todd (Jane) Chambers, Mark (Kimberly) Chambers, 

Laura Beth (Jim) Galloway, Steven (April) Chambers, Cory (Rachel) Maynard, Patricia (Cole) Bennett, Sara Maynard, Adair Maynard, Danielle Maynard and Nicholas Maynard.  

She was blessed with fifteen great grandchildren, Katie(Justin) Gagel, Amanda Chambers, Michael Chambers, Zach Chambers, Andrew Chambers, Brooke Galloway, Joseph Galloway, Annie Galloway, Jack Galloway, Stevie Chambers, Scout Chambers, Zoe Maynard, Finnegan Maynard, Piper Bennett and Landon Bennett.  She is also leaving many nieces and nephews that she loved.

She was a champion of causes.  She led the struggle to pave the roads, have telephone service and a school kitchen to feed the children of her very rural area.  She was a teacher, cashier and Director of Admissions for the UMWA Hospital in South Williamson, Kentucky. It later became the Appalachian Regional Hospital.  She retired after 40 years of service.

Funeral services will be held at Cross Smith Funeral Home in LaFollettte, TN., Saturday, February 22. Visitation will be at 10:30 with services at 11:00.

She also worked for a time as a helper in the cafeteria at the Wynn Habersham School where she and all the other cooks knew all the students by name.  For many years she lived at the LaFollette Gardens and was a member of the Faith Way Assembly of God Church and attended as long as her health allowed. 

She was preceded in death by her husband, Edd Wilburn, mother and father, Frances Malinda Ayers Rookard and Granville Henderson Rookard; her brothers, M.C. and R.L.
