Janice Sharp McAdams
March 28, 1945 – April 13, 2019
Janice Sharp McAdams was born in 1945 in Gadsden, Alabama, to John Robert Sharp, Sr., and Juanita Littlefield Sharp. She is survived by her husband, Charles M. McAdams, Sr.; sons John William McAdams and Charles M. McAdams, Jr. (Roseanne); daughter Terri Lee McAdams (Steve); grandchildren Ryan and Laura McAdams; sister Jonita Sharp Haynes (James); niece Jeneane Haynes Treace (Tony); nephew Howard McAdams, Jr. (Melissa); grandniece and grandnephew Julia and William Treace; and grandniece and grandnephew Heather and Howard McAdams.
Janice grew up on a wooded farm in Alexandria, Alabama. She met Charles while living in Atlanta and they married at the First Baptist Church on Peachtree Street. Janice graduated with high honors from Georgia State University with a degree in Library Science. After the couple moved to Texas, Janice spent many years as a librarian in the Spring Branch Independent School District, where she welcomed students to the library with her friendly, accessible, and sometimes, loquacious manner.
Janice became an excellent mahjong player; she enjoyed the game and the friends who joined her. Janice and Charles were members of a dinner group that met every Tuesday night. Although most of the attendees were high school classmates of Charles, Janice immediately fit in with her outgoing, convivial personality.
Janice created a warm and inviting home in College Station. Janice loved relaxing on the back porch, walking though the wooded property, baking cheesecakes with John, and visiting and entertaining family and friends too numerous to name.
Friends and family are invited to a time of visitation from 6 to 8pm Wednesday April 17, 2019, at Callaway-Jones Funeral Center, 3001 S College Ave. in Bryan, TX. Her life will be celebrated with a graveside ceremony at 11 a.m. Thursday April 18, 2019, at the Bryan City Cemetery. Services are in the care of Callaway-Jones Funeral and Cremation Centers of Bryan College Station.
