Janice K. King

JANICE K. KING, 87, of Weirton, WV passed away on November 16, 2023, in Fairfax, Virginia, after a courageous battle with an extended illness. Born on October 29, 1936, in Weirton, WV, Janice was a daughter of Connie Ott Glover Willey and Ferry A. Glover. She graduated from Weir High School in 1954. During her early years, Janice worked at Weirton’s P&W bus terminal, where she met the love of her life, Charles Clayton “Charlie” King, a bus driver. They married, and together they built a beautiful family. Sadly, Charles preceded her in death in 2002. In 2009, Janice relocated to Virginia to live with her daughter’s family. Janice and Charles were the proud parents of three children: Leslie Carole (John) Sullivan of Falls Church, VA; Charles Clayton King, Jr. (Patricia) of Dover, NH; and William Russell King (Donna) of Weirton. Cherished memories live on through her grandchildren, William Ryan King of Weirton, and John Carroll “Jack” Sullivan of Fairfax, VA. In addition to her husband, Janice was preceded in death by her brother, Brooks Glover, and her sister, Mitzi Bickerstaff. In her younger years, Janice participated in bowling and card clubs and dedicated her time to the Parent-Teacher Association (PTA). During the early 1970s, she worked as an assistant in the office of a podiatrist. Her professional journey continued at Weirton Medical Center, where she served for nearly 20 years before retiring in 1995. After retirement, Janice found joy in the company of the Fun Seekers in Weirton. Janice’s spiritual life was also essential to her, and she was a longtime member of the First United Methodist Church in Weirton. In later years, she became a member of the Weirton First Church of the Nazarene. Most of all, Janice will be remembered for her optimistic outlook on life, and her warmth and kindness as she did not have a mean bone in her body. Her legacy lives on through the countless lives she touched. Friends and family were received Thursday, November 30, 2023 until the time of her funeral service, at the Greco-Hertnick Funeral Home, Weirton, with Rev. Larry Barkley presiding. Interment followed at Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens. Share tributes at
