Mrs. Janice "Jan" Johnson West, age 66, of Pee Dee Highway, passed away Saturday, August 7, 2021 at Conway Medical Center. Mrs. West was born in Norfolk, Virginia at Leigh Memorial Hospital, the daughter of Marionelle Johnson and the late Earl Johnson. After retiring from Horry County Schools where she worked as bookkeeper at Conway Primary, she spent her time serving others with a servant’s heart. She was a member of Mt. Hermon Baptist Church where she was an active member. She was also a member of the Conway Quilt Guild. Proverbs 31:13 reads “She seeketh wool and flax willingly with her hands.” With a servant’s heart full of unconditional love, her love can be cherished through memories and the many works of art she created with her tireless and careful hands… hands that have blessed and provided comfort to those she loved, including family, friends, her community and strangers. If there was a need, her hands provided. Mrs. West was predeceased by her father, Earl Johnson, her maternal grandparents, Hubert and Nettie Roberts, paternal grandparents, Shafter and Lillian Creel Johnson, and her father-in-law and mother-in-law, Acie and Myrtie West. Surviving in addition to her husband, William "Willie" West, of Conway, are one son, Brian and his wife, Danielle West, of Conway; one daughter, Courtney, and her husband, Brandon Epps, of Greer, SC; eight grandchildren, Emory West, Mary Ashley West and Adrianne Hucks, all of Conway, Alexis Hucks, Wells Hucks, Sawyer Epps, Cooper Epps, and Lilli Epps, all of Greer; three sisters, Iris Sessions of Conway, Diana Hucks and her husband, Archie Hucks of Galivants Ferry, and Denise Hucks and her husband, Hank Hucks of Conway; and many loving aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and extended family. Mrs. West was a loving wife, dedicated mother and nana and a wonderful friend to all who knew her. Funeral services will be held graveside at 10:30 a.m., Tuesday, August 10, 2021, at Mt. Hermon Baptist Church cemetery with the Rev. Tommy Richardson, Rev. Jimmy Floyd and Rev. Donnie Graham officiating. Memorials can be made to the Mt.
