Tuesday, February 26, 2013

Janice Kay Flint, 59, of Harwood, Mo., the daughter of Wilbur Leo and Inez Ethel (Green) McGinness was born July 9, 1953, in Clinton, Mo., and passed away at 10:45 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 21, 2013, at her home. She grew up in Deepwater, where she attended and graduated from high school. She then attended Southwest Baptist University for a short time. It was while attending the University that she played piano for the revival team which took her to the Harwood Baptist Church. There she met her future husband, Larry Eugene Flint. She and Larry were married Dec. 21, 1972, and together they made their home in Harwood where they welcomed two sons and one daughter.

Always involved in something, Janice was often found helping the children of the community. From after school programs such as Whirlybirds and Jet Cadets to Vacation Bible School, AWANAS, and Sunday school. Later in the '90s, she began a career as a real estate agent and enjoyed driving all over God's creation in order to find someone a new home. She was an avid flea marketer, a renowned cook, and was the only one in the Flint household with the ability to sing -- she would sing specials at church, where she also played the piano or organ every Sunday. Janice was always ready for a big iced tea and a trip to Steak and Shake. For the last seven years she waged a courageous battle against multiple myeloma.

Survivors include her husband, Larry, of the home; her three children, Larry Flint of Platt City, Mo., Sara Kemper and her husband Errin of Springfield, Mo., and Leo Flint, also of Springfield, Mo.; her mother, lnez Dalton of Buckner, Mo.; two sisters, Joy Neasham and her husband, Ralph, of Napoleon, Mo., and Jackie Hoard Buckner of the state of Missouri; one granddaughter, Katelynn; many nieces, nephews, other relatives, and many friends. She was preceded in death by her father.
