Janice Celene (Thomas) King, 75, of Irvine, Calif., formerly of Pittsburgh, passed away Sunday, Nov. 4, 2018. She was born May 6, 1943, in Pittsburgh to Ruth and William Thomas. She was one of eight children. In 1954, the family moved from the Hill District to the North Side. Janice was educated in Pittsburgh Public Schools and graduated from Allegheny High School in 1961. Janice accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Lord and Savior at an early age. In 1964, Janice married Fletcher A. Robinson and moved to San Diego, Calif. From this union, she gave birth to two sons: Fletcher A. Robinson III and Raymond P. Robinson. Sadly, in 1970, her older son Fletcher drowned in El Toro, Calif., at the age of 5. Janice had lived in Orange County since 1970 and was a retiree from the Rancho Santiago Community College District (Santa Ana College), where she worked for many years as a computer lab assistant. She married James "J.J." King on May 24, 1984, in Mission Viejo, Calif., and they shared 34 wonderful years together, working for worthy community causes and traveling. Janice is survived by her husband, James J. King; son, Raymond Robinson; stepdaughter, Jerilyn King-Brown; sister, Mary Evans, of Charlotte, N.C.; and four brothers, John Thomas, William (Sharon) Thomas, Adrian Thomas and Darren (Tonya) Edwards, who all reside in Pittsburgh.

Janice was preceded in death by her grandparents, Albert and Mary Snowden; her mother, Ruth Edwards; her father, William Thomas; her brother, Charles T.
