Janice E. (Morgan) Clendenin, 62, of Mt. Carmel, Illinois entered the gates of Heaven on Tuesday, February 22, 2022, at 2:30 a.m. at St. Anthony’s Hospice Care Facility, Henderson, Kentucky. She was surrounded by her family and caring staff.
Janice was born the daughter of John and Mildred (Yockey) Morgan on August 1, 1959, in Rogers, Arkansas. She was raised one of eight children. As an adult, she would tell stories of her family’s travels and the times they would all crowd into one vehicle headed across the United States. She liked to note the various states in which her siblings were born and what they had been doing at the time….and thus her love of travel began.
On November 15, 1979, she married Rev. Ricky L. Clendenin in Atlantic Beach, Florida and together they shared nearly thirty-one years of marriage until the time of his death in 2010. This union was blessed with a son and a daughter. Together they traveled both in the Navy and due to ministry, furthering her love for adventure. Janice loved the Lord and her family. In her spare time, she liked to shop, travel, spend time with her grandkids and visit the beach whenever she could.
She enjoyed working for over five years, until her death, at Vascor as auto parts manager in Princeton, Indiana. There she made many lasting friendships. She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, David and Paige Clendenin of Mt. Carmel; siblings Dianna White, Joan Coles, Patty (Robby) Robbins, John (Sheila) Morgan, Mike (Laura) Morgan, Ruth (Ricardo) Trinidad, as well as granddaughters Jazmine (Jacob Skelton) Clendenin, Brooklyn Clendenin-Peek, Missy, Lexi, and Keller Clendenin. She had many children that she accepted as her grandkids, Addison, Cole, Remington, Grace, Caroline and more, as well as many other nieces and nephews, friends, and beloved family. Janice was preceded in death by her daughter, Crystal Clendenin, husband Ricky Clendenin, parents John and Mildred Morgan and brother James Morgan.
