Obituary

Janice Elaine McNaughton, 82, Venice, Florida formerly of Enid, Oklahoma passed away Sunday, June 4, 2023.

She was born on July 25, 1940, to Harvey and Genevieve (Jantzen) Bullard in Orienta, Oklahoma. Raised in Buffalo, OK where she began her love for singing and playing the piano, sharing with her church community. She graduated from Buffalo High School in 1958 and attended Southwest Oklahoma State University.

She was united in marriage to her life-long friend and neighbor, Paul McNaughton in 1959. From this union, they were blessed with three children Jeff, Lori, and Suzy. They lived in California for 15 years where she was a wonderful mother, homemaker, took up one of her hobbies of bowling and became a hairdresser. In 1974, the family moved to Enid, Oklahoma and made their home of 27 years. She was an active member in the Pioneer Pleasant Vale community supporting her children’s many activities.

Janice had many talents and hobbies, including painting, crocheting, knitting, and quilting, passing many of these talents to her children. She also demonstrated hair dressing skills at her salon, Country Clippers, and as an instructor at Enid Beauty College and Central State Beauty Academy in Oklahoma City, where she also was a mother figure to her students. Many others looked up to her for her motherly advice and listening ears, including nieces, nephews, employees, and friends.

Janice’s other love was spending time with their horses and enjoying the horse races. She and Paul shared their love of the races with many friends and family.

Janice will be greatly missed by the immeasurable number of lives that she touched. We were greatly blessed to have her as our wife, mother, grandmother, and friend.

Janice is survived by her husband, Paul. Children: Jeff (Lou Ann) McNaughton of Dallas, TX, Lori (Steve) Scott of Nokomis, FL and Suzy Gregg of Venice, FL. Grandchildren: Matthew Willmeng, Sloan Stefanek and Shelby Stefanek, Nichole (Rob) Fox, Skyler (Kristen) Scott, Lexi Gregg, and Nathan Gregg. Great-grandchildren: Chase, Amelia, Avery, and Asher. Her sister Mary Jane Weldon and many other family members and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Harvey and Genevieve Bullard, son-in-law Clark Gregg and brother-in-law Phil Weldon.

A private family service will be planned at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to Bennie’s Barn in Enid. Bennie’s Barn was created on the farm where Paul and Janice resided for 27 years.

    Growing up in the Pioneer Pleasant Vale school district in Enid, OK, every friend’s Mom was your Mom too. Two things stick out to me vividly;
    When we had sleep-overs at Lori’s, Jan always made sure we had the best snacks and secondly, because I had such fine hair, Jan would always offer hair care advice. She not only recommended products but she would get them for me and let me have them at her cost. This went on for years even meeting up with her when Paul and Jan moved to OKC. She always took care of me!! She was a beautiful and wonderful friend to my entire family. She will be missed by us that remain but Im sure my Mom is excited.
    Much love to Paul, Jeff, Lori, and Suzy as well as the entire family. You are in my prayers.

    Grace and class , are two words that come to mind thinking of Jan. She was such a great listening ear, with words of wisdom. I remember her comforting me several times. I am heartbroken for the family she will truly be missed. . Knowing, God is so good , having the promise that she is in the arms of Jesus, and that we will all see her again someday. Love to you all , Sincerely, Kim Nakvinda
