Janet Webster March McClure, age 74 of Paris, TN, died Friday, December 8, 2023, at her residence.
Janet was a woman of many talents. She was an excellent pianist and photographer, with a unique sensibility and a keen eye. In her younger years, she worked for the Memphis Public Library in the graphic arts department and later channeled her creative energies into a small antiques business, and her home. She was a good friend and neighbor, generous with her compliments and laughter, with a knack for finding memorable gifts, and she had a profound love and respect for animals. An inveterate Scrabbler and crossworder, she loved wordplay and puns—the more groan-inducing the better—and she had an astounding sweet tooth, which she fed by drawing on her considerable baking skills. She had an abiding love and faith in Jesus Christ, who inspired her to try to be a better, kinder person. She will be sorely missed by her family and friends who are grateful that she is now free from all her pain and finally able to kick up her heels and dance with her loved ones who are waiting for her in heaven.
Janet was born January 24, 1949, in Chicago, IL, to the late John C. March and the late Dorothy Webster March.
She was married May 21, 1976, to John Dickson McClure, who preceded her in death on October 29, 2021.
She is survived by two daughters, Mandy McClure of Cairo, Egypt, and Kimberly LaFleur of Brunswick, OH; a sister, Ann (James) Tidwell of Louisville, KY; a brother, James March of Truth or Consequences, NM; two granddaughters, Monica LaFleur, and Kelly LaFleur; two great grandchildren, Charlize Tonk, and Jayce Tonk; and numerous nieces and nephews.
In addition to her parents and husband, she was also preceded in death by her twin brother, John March; and two sisters, Jean March Thompson Taylor and Jane March.
Arrangements are being handled by Ridgeway Funeral Home, 201 Dunlap Street, Paris, TN 38242. The body is to be cremated with no services planned at this time.
