October 15, 1954 - May 26, 2018
Janet McCord, age 63 of Judsonia, Arkansas, died, Saturday, May 26, 2018 at her home surrounded by her loving family. She was born on Friday, October 15, 1954 to Marvin Lee and Ola Pauline Mize Turner in Pine Bluff, Arkansas.
Janet was a diligent worker who earned a Bachelor's Degree in Education from UALR with Magna Cum Laude distinctions. She applied her education for many years at Cossatot Technical College and Rich Mountain Community College as an Adult Education Instructor, helping others obtain the education necessary to better their lives. Janet employed her God given gifts in three ministries: being a faithful pastor's wife to David for 38 years, a caring and loving mother to Leah and Todd, and helping others through her work as an Adult Educator. Janet's hobbies were a natural manifestation of her love and care for others; she delighted in creating quilts and homemade crafts for others, actively participating in the ministries of the churches she committed herself as a member, and demonstrating her love as witness to her redemption through her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Janet was a faithful disciple of Jesus, loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, friend and member of First Baptist Church in Searcy. She is loved by her family and will be deeply missed.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Marvin and Ola Turner; her son, Todd McCord; her sister-in-law, Ann Brown Turner; father and mother-in-law, Eddie and Margie McCord and her nephew, John McCord.
