Janice Georgallis, age 71, passed away on Monday, August 3rd, 2020, in Grandy, NC. She was born December 24, 1948, in Norfolk, Virginia to Charles Martinsen and Mildred Hudgins (Voight). Janice is survived by her husband, John Georgallis; her sons, Troy and Todd Hoeg; sisters, Paula Lehmiller, Patricia Heinz (Pershitter), and Pamela Donan-Tims; granddaughters, Kylie and Lilly Hoeg; and many other extended family members – she was blessed with a big family! She is preceded in death by her father, Charles Martinsen; her mother, Mildred Voight and husband, Paul Voight; and her brothers, Thomas and Howard Martinsen.
Janice had an immense love for her family, and an overflowing love for her Lord and Savior. She was a dedicated mother andhad a heart of gold, as many would say. Cooking was a passion of hers, but most importantly, eating the foods that she and John would cook made her the happiest. They would cook lots of fresh vegetables from their garden and share with the family. She enjoyed decorating, singing, camping, having fun with family and friends, and wearing lipstick. Many of her nieces and nephews remember that red lipstick she would share – either by putting it on the lips of her nieces or with a kiss to the forehead of her nephews. Her red-lipped smile always lit up the room!
