Janice Marie Bass Burton, 58, departed this earthly home on Saturday, March 21, 2020.
Janice was born July 22, 1961 to William “Ben” and the late Gracie Lee Turrentine Bass in Durham, NC. Janice attended Durham County Public Schools and was a 1979 graduate of Northern High School. Janice graduated from Durham Technical College with an associate degree in Secretarial Science in 1981. Janice worked many years in the collections and credit managing field. In 1982 Janice married the gentle giant, Dorsey James “Jimmy” Burton, Jr. and this union brought forth the loves of her life, Justin James and Jamien Benson. Janice spent a lot of her free time supporting Jimmy and Justin at softball games, Justin and Jamie at basketball games as well as her nieces and nephews’ events, but she loved playing bingo the most. Janice was a supportive wife, mother, sister, aunt, cousin and friend that never hesitated to bring her infamous pasta or potato salad to an event. In addition to her devoted husband of 37 years, Jimmy, Janice leaves behind to keep her memory alive, her son Justin of Los Angeles, California, her son Jamien of the home, her father Ben Bass of Rougemont, her brother John Michael Bass (Hallie) of Bahama, a sister Pamela Bass of Rougemont, mother in love Mary Peaks Burton, brothers in love Anthony Burton and Gerald Burton (Angela), sisters in love Marilyn, Glenda and Bertha Michelle Burton and Rhonda Thomas (Jerry), her aunts Shirley Cole, Alberta Trent, Polly Bass, Nettie Parker and Nellia Nicholson. She leaves behind a God brother, Willie Marrow (Margie) and God sister Carolyn Hamlet. She will especially be missed by a host of spoiled nieces and nephews, cousins and friends.
