Janice Vickers Fails of Minersville Utah, our loving mother, grandma, sister, aunt, cousin and friend passed on from this earthly existence on July 21, 2021. Janice lived a life hallmarked by service and quiet courage which began in the warmth of the second day of August nearly 75 years ago in Payson, Utah. Her parents, Gerald and Mildred Vickers eagerly awaited her arrival as their first child. \nFrom a young age Janice developed a passion for creating things from sewing rag dolls to building friendships with her rare brand of compassion as the catalyst. Her love of community would be a staple woven throughout her life and efforts far beyond her backyard play dates. Her relationship with her little brother, Evan Vickers, was no exception and her love for him only multiplied as the pair grew through life together.\nAs time went on Janice attended Beaver High School where she enjoyed learning to play musical instruments and being involved with several different clubs. It was here that she met the boy that made her heart sing. Bill and Janice’s young love turned eternal on January 8, 1965 in the St. George Temple. Together they embarked on their greatest adventure raising their six children while pursuing their passions to be entrepreneurs. To her children, Janice was a guiding example of hard work and loyal companionship. \nPassers-by, locals, friends and family alike perhaps best know Bill and Janice as the warm place to pull up a seat at the gas station counter to enjoy a fountain coke and friendly (and sometimes mildly serious) candor. It was here that Janice touched the lives of many with her genuine interest in the well being of everyone who stepped across the threshold of Bill's Chevron in Orem, UT and later Bill’s Chevron when the family moved back to Minersville UT, the place forever etched in their hearts as home.\nAs life went on Janice demonstrated through quiet and profound service her genuine love for others. She voluntarily aided friends and strangers in their darkest and most fear ridden moments as an EMT. She willingly subjected herself to the less than pleasant harmonies of elementary school students she taught to play an array of musical instruments for the very first time. Her devotion to her faith was unwavering as she was often the first to sit with those in grief and heartache and show up for those in need of support. Her grandchildren know her as the quiet presence in the stands of their graduations, performances, and games. Her children know her as a steady and predictable place to land. Her friends will miss her presence at “club,” in her daughter’s hair shop, in the foyers of church, and halls of the temple where she devoted much of her time and talents. \nAll who knew Janice were made keenly aware that people were her passion. Her dedication to family history work meshed with her recent love of photography. Her goals have always been influenced by the importance of creating connection whether it be connecting the past with the present, or forever freezing moments to preserve beautifully ordinary experiences to enjoy in the future. \n Janice’s life was not void of heartache or challenges. In August of 2004 she bid a temporary farewell to her forever sweetheart after a tragic accident. She then experienced the heartache of losing her loving grandson, Taylor Fails in 2013 in another unexpected accident, and Troy Fails, her forever little boy, in 2019. Our hearts break with the realization that her earthly journey with us has ended, and we find a wholehearted peace in the reunion taking place in the life that continues beyond this one. Janice reminds us that we are all knitted together and held by the master weaver who is infinitely aware of our grief and heartache. Her example in this life is a testament that this same tailor reinforces our broken hearts with the power of his own, forever aiding us forward until we are whole in his presence again. \nJanice was welcomed home by her husband Bill Fails, son Troy Fails, grandson Taylor Fails, Mother and Father Gerald and Mildred Vickers, and many other family and friends. Janice is survived by her sons Scott (Paula) Fails, Tracy (Nancy) Fails, Travis (Tonya) Fails and her daughters Tereasa Fails and Michelle (Bryan) Wood, her brother Evan (Christine) Vickers, her grandchildren, great grandchildren, many nieces, nephews, and friends. \nA celebration and remembrance of Janice’s life will be held on Monday, July 26th at 11:00am in the Minersville Stake Center located at 130 W Main St, Minersville, UT 84752 A viewing will be held prior to the funeral services Sunday, July 25th from 5:00-7:00pm and Monday July 26th at 9:30-10:30am both located at the Minersville Stake Center.
