Obituary for Janice K. Speakman

August 27, 1932 - November 2, 2021
New Oxford, Pennsylvania | Age 89


Janice K (Blevins) Speakman, 89, went to be with the Lord on November 2, 2021, in New Oxford, PA. She was born in Grassy Creek, NC on August 27, 1932 to the late Lester and Ruth (Pierce) Blevins. Janice was preceded in death by her husband, G. Alan Speakman, who she was married to for 58 years. Besides her husband and her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister Edith Spadaccino, her sister-in-laws Ruth Marie Speakman and Dorothea E Baker, and her daughter-in-law Deborah Speakman.
Janice and her family moved to Bucks County when she was 2 years old. She was a graduate of Council Rock High School and West Chester State College, where she met her future husband. She taught in the American School in France while her husband served in the US Army during the Korean Conflict. While raising her family she also taught in the Council Rock School District until her retirement. She loved to travel with her husband and spend time with her family. These loves were second only to her love for the Lord. Her beautiful needlework, knitting and quilting are treasured by those who received them.
Janice is survived by her sons Robert Alan Speakman of New Market, MD, Thomas Wayne Speakman and his wife, Carole, of Perkasie, PA, her daughters, Susan Lee Dow and her husband, David, of Jonestown, PA and Karen Ann Germann and her husband, Jeffrey, of New Market, MD, five grandchildren Kelsey Speakman, of Virginia Beach, VA, Meredith Speakman of Weymouth, MA, Morgan Speakman, of Charlotte, NC, Amanda Brill and her husband Johann of Mechanicsburg, PA and Matthew Germann, of New Market, MD and a niece and four nephews. She is also survived by her brother-in-law Leo Spadaccino of Levittown, PA.
The family is extremely grateful to the staff at Cross Keys Brethren Village, Brookside for their exemplary care of their Mom. They truly became her second family and she felt at home there.
