Janis F. Wigle

Suffolk, VA
01.18.1939 - 05.05.2019

Janis F. Wigle was born in Beckley, WV on January 18, 1939, she was a devoted wife and mother to her first husband and two daughters. Both husband John and daughter Wanda Fink died much too young as a result of Polycystic Kidney disease. Jan was able to deliver two healthy children Daniel and Angie, who in turn presented the proud grandparents with eight great grandchildren. In 1991 the Lord brought Janis and Howard Wigle together at Fellowship Baptist Church on Taylor Road in Portsmouth, VA. Love quickly blossomed between the two and they were married on May 16 1992.

Janis passed away after a long hard illness just days short of their 27th anniversary. Once again Janis demonstrated her profound love and affection throughout those 27 years for her husband and her three step children. Howard Jr., Chuck, and Kimberly who presented their father with 6 great grandchildren. She is also survived by her brother Jerry Hatcher and wife Claire and nieces and nephews; her Sunday school friends, and all the dear hearts she has touched in her lifetime.

Janis was not only a great wife and mother to all her children, but also a God loving and compassionate Registered Nurse who spent most of her Nursing Career in North Eastern NC. I, Howard Wigle Sr. am so very thankful to our Lord and Savior for granting me the best 27 years of my life and I shall miss Janis, my soulmate dearly until I too shall pass from this life to life everlasting. I take refuge in knowing “that absence from the body is presence with our Lord and Savior for eternity.

“I love you and miss you sweetheart. I know in my heart that I will see you again.”

My sincere condolences goes out to the family during this difficult time. May you find a measure of comfort in God's promise at Revelation 21:3,4 where we look forward to a time when there will be no more pain and death any more. JW.ORG


The death of your loved one Janis is one of the most devastating experiences your family will face. At times, the pain of your loss will feel unbearable. Please know that there are friends who care about you and your family during this difficult time and more importantly Psalm 34:18 tells us that "God is near to those that are broken at heart.” We pray that Jehovah the God of all comfort is with your family during this difficult time of grief.
