Janet Rose Warren Collier, 84, of Wade, went peacefully to be with the Lord at her home on Good Friday, April 7, 2023.
A funeral service will be held at Center Baptist Church at 2:00pm on Monday, April 10, 2023, with Rev. Tommy Honeycutt and Rev. Lynn McLaurin officiating. A viewing will take place from 1:00pm – 1:45pm at the church. Burial will follow at McMillan Presbyterian Church. The family will receive friends on Sunday, April 9th, 2023, from 4:00pm – 6:00pm at the “Barbecue House” beside their home.
Janet was born on December 7, 1938, in Sampson County. She was preceded in death by her parents, Herman & Ruth Starling Warren; and her loving husband of 60 years, Worth Wingate Collier.
Janet graduated from Mingo High School and Atlantic Christian College. After graduating, she began a long and rewarding teaching career with the North Carolina Public School System. She was a beloved and devoted teacher to students in Harnett, Lenoir, and Cumberland counties, eventually retiring in 1999. Janet adored her family and friends, and was the picture of southern hospitality. She especially loved to cook and entertain in her home and at the family’s Barbecue House. Janet was hardworking in her home, her church, and her community, faithfully serving anywhere she was needed. She was also active in the Bethany Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary until her battle with cancer began in 2018. Janet was a wonderful example of the Christian faith - always positive and uplifting, never complaining, and genuinely concerned for others. She will be deeply missed by all those that knew and loved her.
