Rev. Janice Wardean Holster Matthews was born on June 29th, 1949 in Crockett, TX to A.J. Holster and Norma D. Pike, and grew up in Houston, TX.
Janice accepted Christ at an early age, and was first ordained as a minister by Mac Watson at 16 years old. She never met a stranger and ministered to others everywhere she went. As a young adult, she demonstrated an excellent work ethic, and quickly worked her way up to retail management positions where she continued to work until the time of her retirement.
Janice loved and served the Lord throughout her entire life. Preaching the gospel, serving others, and loving her family were her constant priorities. She taught innumerable Sunday School classes, and frequently played the organ and piano at nearly any church that needed her help. She loved to sing and praise the Lord through music.
During her retirement years, Janice used her creative gifts to make hundreds of baby quilts embroidered with bible verses & prayers for almost every new baby she encountered. Janice wasn’t one to use her retirement to fulfill her own dreams and desires. She regularly volunteered at First United Methodist Church of Bedford through their Project Help Program, and stepped-in as a guest speaker in times of need at many local churches.
