It is with great sadness that our family announces the passing of our precious friend, sister, and aunt, Janice Katherine Brake. Janice was born in Pearsall, Texas on Dec. 7, 1949, to Ora Hart Brake and Joe Earl Brake, Sr. and passed into the loving arms of our Lord and Savior on Monday, March 27, 2023.
Janice was known for making deep connections with people, pets, and nature. Everybody loved Janice and Janice loved everyone. Janice was a peacemaker, an animal rights activist, and an avid reader remembered for her kind, gentle spirit, gracious manner, and sweet smile. She was loyal, kind and generous, and had a quiet strength. Janice tirelessly supported animal and human rights and was a guardian angel to hundreds of fur babies throughout her life. Janice spent her professional life as a world class secretary and executive assistant most remembered for her work with Dr. Jimmy Allen, former pastor of First Baptist Church of San Antonio. She also worked with the Southern Baptist Convention, Incarnate Word, and Trinity University where she made treasured friendships. She loved country music, and dancing with her beloved Jerry.
Janice leaves behind a legacy of great compassion and love for humanity. The world will never know a kinder spirit. She is now reunited with family and hundreds of cherished pets. Her legacy will be with us always. Rest in Peace our precious love.
