Janice Marie Maiden, 86, of Lake Havasu City, passed away peacefully on
Jan. 4, 2024 in Goodyear surrounded by family and loved ones. She was
born on July 25, 1937, in Torrington, Wyoming, to Samuel Spencer Matlock
and Myrtle (Bramwell) Matlock.

Janice married Albert Earl Lind in December of 1956, and together they
had three daughters: Deborah Elaine, Pamela Diane, and Cindy Jo.
She spent most of her life living in western Nebraska, Wyoming and
Northern Colorado, where she worked as an optometrist's assistant.

After the death of Albert in 1989, she moved to Windsor, Colorado, and
remarried Mike Denny. They spent many years there until they retired in
2001 and moved to Lake Havasu City.

After Mike's passing in 2012, she stayed in Havasu, enjoying her
retirement. She remarried David Tommy Maiden and spent the following
years with friends and helping grow several new churches, until his
passing in 2022. Janice enjoyed the help and company of David's daughter
Kathy Saldana, her children and grandchildren who remained in the Havasu

Those who knew Jan (and there are many) will tell you know she was such
a good-hearted person that would always light up the room. Even at 86
years old, she would still do everything she wanted, even painting the
bathroom when she was told not to!

She is survived by children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren:
Chantell (Ziegler) and Matt Long of Turlock, California, and their two
children; Mindy (Kubo) and Sam Jones of Fort Collins, Colorado; their
two children; Shawna (Kubo) and Jeremiah Bircheat of Texas, and their
four children; Kristin (Kubo) and Will Mann of Carrollton, Texas, and
their child; Christopher Howard and Jamee, and their two children;
Michael Howard and Janna, and their three children; Dustin Lind and
Kimberly, and their four children.

She is preceded in death by her sister Carol and daughter Cindy Jo.

A remembrance gathering will be held at 11 a.m., Feb. 10, 2024 at Lake
Havasu Church of the Nazarene. 2700 N. Rainbow Ave. All are welcome.
Potluck lunch to follow.
