Janice Catron Reed

MEADOWVIEW, Va.

Janice Catron Reed, age 83, passed away Thursday, January 13, 2022 at Johnston Memorial Hospital, Abingdon, Va.

Janice graduated from Marion Senior High School in 1956. She worked at Lemon Transport, the Smyth County Sheriff's Office and as a Certified Nursing Assistant at Valley Health Care Center. Janice was a wonderful mother and a loving wife to Gary who said "I lost not only my wife, but my best friend." She loved her family dearly; they came first in all things - that's the best that can be said about her. Janice also enjoyed music and camping.

She was preceded in death by her daughter, Eva Reavis; parents, LeRoy and Ina Catron; brother, Jess Catron; and sister, Debbie Martin.

Janice is survived by her devoted husband of 43 years, Gary Reed; two daughters, Tena Rhea and Sandra Snaden; two sisters, Linda Martin and Barbara Griffith; 11 grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren.

The family will receive friends Tuesday, January 18, 2022 from 5 until 7 p.m. with funeral services beginning at 7 p.m. at Seaver-Brown Chapel. A private burial will be held at Rose Lawn Cemetery.

My most vivid memory of Janice was when I was in my teenage years and she was working at the Sherriff's Department. I thought I was athletic and fairly strong and as she was describing her training at the department, I naively decided to challenge that training. Well needless to say, in less than 5 seconds she had my wrist twisted and on the ground begging for mercy ending in newfound respect. Always remember her laugh and the joking around she did with all of us nephews. Rest easy.
