Janice Claire Strickland was born February 9, 1947, in Bainbridge, GA, the daughter of James Clifton Strickland and Carolyn Rich Strickland. Janice was a Bainbridge native and attended First Presbyterian Church. She was a graduate of Bainbridge High School, Class of 1965 and Valdosta State College, earning a Bachelor’s in English Education. In 1969 she began her career as an educator. Janice married Bobby M. Trawick in 1971. Janice retired with over 30 years of service from Decatur County Schools in 2012. She proudly served as the Chaplain for the Bainbridge Chapter of the Daughters of The American Revolution.

Janice loved her family unconditionally and served them faithfully. She loved the telephone, the beach and her yard. Janice always had a smile on her face and hardly ever met a stranger. Janice was always willing to lend an ear and maybe a little advice. She touched many lives during her career in education serving at Bainbridge High School, Oaks Academy, Hutto Jr. High School, West Bainbridge Middle School and eventually retiring from Bainbridge Middle School.

Survivors include her husband of 45 years, Bobby M. Trawick; her son, Cheshire Trawick and his wife, Charity; her grandchildren, Jonah and Harper; and her sisters, Kay Foldes and her husband, Lance, of Rome, Ga. and Jane Camp and her husband, Randy, of Monroe, Ga.. Janice was preceded in death by her parents.
