Janice Colleen (Long) Arbuckle, 90, was called home to heaven to be with her Savior on October 8, 2018. Janice was born March 12, 1928, the daughter of the late Floyd Maurice and Gladys (McDonald) Long, both of Shelbyville.
Janice graduated from Shelbyville High School in 1946. She married James M. Arbuckle on June 5, 1960 in Westchester, California. They lived in Cypress, California with their four children: Bruce (Karen) Oldham; Lucinda (Kenny) Kuhn; Guy (MaryJo) Oldham; and Rene' (Rob) Spoon. They later returned to Indiana, splitting their time between Franklin and Sarasota, Florida.
Janice loved the sunshine and beach. Her favorite times were spent with her husband, children, grandchildren, sisters, and friends. She will be remembered for her beautiful smile, her warm heart and her wonderful sense of humor. Janice always loved children. Her favorite Bible verse was Matthew 19:14, "But Jesus said, 'suffer little children and forbid them not to come unto me; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.'"
Janice was employed as an executive legal secretary in Indianapolis, retiring in the late 1980s from the firm of Stark, Doninger, Mernitz and Smith.
