Janice Marie Lee Acklin, was born January 2, 1945 in New Orleans, LA to the late George Acklin Sr. and the late Sallie Lucille Lee. Janice was called to rest on March 17, 2022 at 11:00 PM. Beloved mother of Sherrell Acklin, (Joe); and Earl Acklin (Mina); grandmother "Maw Maw" of Asia Domino-Armour (Enniss); Adrione Domino, and D’Juan Boudreaux. Great Grandmother of Milton Kelley Jr., Aidan and Ean Armour, and Malaun Boudreaux. Godmother to Anna Marie Armour, and like a mother to Lisa Brock. Janice had her belief in God. her trust, faith, and confidence in Jesus. Knowing that God would call her home soon, her transition from the world was peacefully. Her family and friends surrounded her while playing music, dancing and singing to her going home celebration. Janice retired from the Dry Cleaning business where she was dedicated to her work. She was diligent, professional and had great work ethic while paying attention to detail. Janice enjoyed music, dancing, and dressing and not a hair out of place. Her favorite type of music was Rhythm and Blues. the kind of music that take you back to the years of yesterday. Her love for fashion was phenomenal. she loved looking her best and the mirror was her friend. Her favorite colors were white, red and orange. Janice was geniune, real in her ways. If you knew her or was even in her company you would know that she would say and tell you exactly what was on her mind and heart. You could say that she was authentic. Janice was preceded in death by her parents George Acklin Sr., and Sallie Lucille Lee, six sisters, Natalie Shenall, Enelda Nellum, Yolanda Robinson, Yvonne Herbert, Yvette Lee, and Ruby Temple. Six brothers Nathaniel Griffen, Byron and Brian Lee, Vernell, Jerome, and George Acklin Jr. Janice leaves to cherish her memories her brother Bryant, sisters Sandra and Yasmine Lee.
