Janis Lyn Williamson Harville was born July 30, 1949, in Baton Rouge, La., and transitioned into heaven on Sunday, Oct. 4, 2015, at 1:21 a.m. in the place she loved most—her home in Meeker, Colo.
She is survived by her husband, James Gordon Harville of Meeker; two children, Shawn Harville and his wife, Missie, of Meeker, Colo., and Shannon West and her husband, Alan, of Warren, Ark.; four grandchildren, Shelby, Shayne, Maddie and Ty; one brother, Reese Sumrall, and one sister, Kay Stimac. She is preceded in death by her parents, Alfred Williamson of Pleasant Hill, La., and Katherine Tatman, of Grand Cane, La.
At her request, in lieu of flowers, the family has asked that donations be made in Lyn’s name to Operation Christmas Child, a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse, at www.samaritanspurse.org.
