Janice (Wells) Hollingsworth passed away on Saturday, September 25, 2021, at Choctaw County Regional Medical Center, in Ackerman, MS. Janice was born June 24, 1950, in Choctaw County, MS, to Calton O. and Etoy(Dean) Wells. She was 71 years old and a member of Macedonia Baptist Church in Decatur, MS.

Janice loved life and loved helping others. Until health problems began to plague her active life, you would find her out and about doing her favorite things….offering assistance to someone who was hurting, babysitting her grands and great-grands which were the joy of her life, helping her husband with his business, and, of course, shopping!
She worked in several different jobs before health issues forced her to retire. Her final place of employment was Winston Medical Clinic in Louisville, MS, where she made many life-long friends of which she often spoke.

Funeral services will be held on Tuesday, September 28, 2021, 2:00 p.m., at Macedonia Baptist Church in Decatur, MS, with Coleman Funeral Home of Ackerman in charge of arrangements. Burial will follow in Macedonia Cemetery. Visitation will be held on Monday, September 27, 2021, 5:00-8:00 p.m. at Coleman Funeral Home, and 2 hours prior to service time on Tuesday, at the church in Decatur.

Janice is survived by her husband, Robert Hollingsworth of Eupora, MS; 1 daughter, Susan Wells of Ackerman, MS; 1 son, Randy(Alaina)Hollingsworth of Eupora, MS; 2 sisters, Brenda(Scott) Pearson of Eupora, MS, Ann(Keith)Coleman of Ackerman, MS; 5 grandchildren, Chance Hollingsworth, Blake Wells and fiancé Maddy Turner, Lanah Claire Wells, Holden Hollingsworth, and Eden Hollingsworth; and 3 great-grandchildren, Atleigh Hollingsworth, Presleigh Hollingsworth, and Cooper Hollingsworth.
