Obituary for Janice Kay Peterson

Janice Kay Peterson (Sawyer), 72, of Corsicana, passed away Wednesday, August 15 at her home. Janice was born on November 27, 1945, to James Franklin Wilson and Janie (Scruggs) Sawyer in Corsicana. Over the years, she lived in Austin, TX, Temple, TX, and even made her way up to Oklahoma City, OK, for about 15 years before making her way home to Corsicana for the past 30 years. In 1966, Janice Sawyer became Janice Peterson after marrying the father of her beloved children.
Janice graduated from Navarro College with an Associate’s Degree. She worked at Centex caring for people with special needs for 25 years until her retirement in 2017. Janice loved to watch old movies, play solitaire and mahjong tiles and watch the Home Shopping Network. Janice could always talk her way out of her “home shopping network binges,” as she would receive a free gift with each purchase. She loved Adele, George Strait, and above all, Elvis. She was a lifelong Dallas Cowboys fan who stuck by her team no matter what. Janice will be remembered for her love of helping others and she will be greatly missed by those who knew her.
She is preceded in death by both her parents, and her brother, Ronnie Sawyer.
Janice was a loving mother to her daughters, Laura James, Christine Wixson (Dave), and Kandyce Kronk (Kevin). She was a wonderful grandmother to Ivan James II (Ashley), Grant James (Andy Walker), Taylor James, Hannah Wixson, Austin Wixson, and Cole Wixson. Her great grandchildren include Jazlyne James, Gisselle James, Azalea James, and Ivan James III. She will also be dearly missed by her “fur-baby” Molly, and grand-dog Banks.
A graveside service will be held at Dawson Cemetery on Saturday, September 1, 2018 at 10 AM. The family will receive friends and loved ones following the graveside from 12 PM until 2 PM at Corley Funeral Home.
An online guest book is available at and selecting the Janice Kay Peterson Obituary.
