Janice Glass Obituary

DATELINE:  KINGS MOUNTAIN, NORTH CAROLINA
Janice Vernice Glass

Janice Vernice Glass, 82, of Kings Mountain, NC, passed away on December 17, 2023 at Emerald Gardens Assisted Living in Greenwood, SC. 
Janice was preceded in death by her husband, Harold M. Glass, Sr., parents, Baxter and Burzilla Brackett, siblings Robert Brackett, S.L. Brackett, Ora Carter and Fred Brackett,
Janice was the last child of four, born to Baxter and Burzilla Brackett in Lawndale, NC in 1941. She was an A student at Piedmont High School before meeting her husband, Harold Glass and subsequently moving to Kings Mountain where she would raise her family in Christian principles and values. She was a staunch lifetime Republican and worked many long hours in support of James T. Broyhill and others, both locally and nationally for over 30 years. She was a NC election poll worker for decades in support of democratic elections. Most of all, she was a beautiful, kindhearted, well-mannered soul who nurtured and ministered to not only her children and grandchildren but also her church and community. She loved to travel, with the beach being one of her favorite places to frequent. She served in every capacity that was possible while a member of Macedonia Baptist Church and loved to sing in the choir. She loved music in general and especially loved many hymns of the Baptist Hymnal. After becoming widowed, she met a very special companion, Dale Whitted, who pretty much spent from breakfast to the end of the Jeopardy game show with her daily. Any time they could, they seized the opportunity to travel from the mountains to the coast along the southeast seaboard to New Orleans. Including the Etta Glass property, Janice and Dale refurbished 5 properties with three being historical and flipped these in support of their adventures together. The world is a little less bright today as her precious soul departed to Heaven to join her parents, siblings, husband Harold M. Glass Sr., daughter, Bridget G. Martin, and many friends that made that journey before her. The family would like to extend a special thanks to Sherry Tony and Ann Huffman for keeping Janice comfortable at home; Emerald Gardens Assisted Living Center and Memory Care; Hospice workers Leshown, Virginia, Crystal, and Kim; Mel and KK for their care in her final hours.

Donations to Alzheimer’s Association are suggested.
