Janice Irene Gunnoe

“Let not your heart be troubled; ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. John, 14, 1-4.”

In the evening hours of Monday  March 3, 2014, our beloved sister and aunt, Janice Irene Gunnoe was delivered into the arms of our Lord.

Born on March 1, 1929 at Bolt, she was the daughter of the late Anthony Acord and Stollie Dickens Acord. Mrs. Gunnoe was a homemaker and had lived her life in Bolt. Until declining health she attended the Shiloh Community Church in Saxon, W.Va.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Roy Ray Gunnoe in April 2000, by sister Laura Acord, and by two brothers, Dennis "Bill" Acord and Ronald Acord.

She is survived by three sisters, Connie Samples and her husband Kenny of Bolt, Eunice Gunnoe and her husband Kermit of Bolt, and Drema Hurst of Waynesburg, Pa. Also surviving are a host of nieces, nephews, family and friends.

Funeral services will be conducted at the Rose and Quesenberry Peace Chapel in Beckley on Saturday March 8, 2014 at 1 p.m. with Rev. Jerry Cantley officiating, and with Rev. Dean Adams as a soloist. Friends may call two hours prior to the service, from 11 a.m.  until 1 p.m. on Saturday at the funeral home. Burial will follow at Sunset Memorial Park in Beckley.
