Janice enjoyed going to church at Living Word Community Church and fellowshipping with her church family. She was very talented and creative in many ways and enjoyed scrapbooking, stamping and making cards. Janice also liked to play music. Her instrument of choice was the bass fiddle, and her favorite type of music was Christian.
She loved baseball and her favorite team was the Washington Nationals. She never missed a game on television unless it was on a church night. A couple of years ago her son Scott picked her up for a surprise birthday night out. As they were driving by the Nationals Stadium, she told him one day she was going to go to a live ball game. He looked at her and laughed and turned into one of the Nationals parking lots and said this is your lucky day. From that moment on, she was one of their best fans. Her favorite place to vacation was spending time on the beach in Ocean City, MD.
For the past 37 plus years, she worked for the St. Mary's County Public Schools and retired in January 2013. She finished her career working at Benjamin Banneker Elementary School working with kindergarten students. She loved them all as if they were her own.

|Dyson, Sarah Rebecca
Birth: 1928-06-10 in Ridge, Maryland
|Sarah Rebecca Gough Dyson, 84 of Lexington Park, MD, entered into eternal rest on Saturday, March , 16, 2013 in the comfort of Chesapeake Shores Nursing Home. Sarah was born on June 10, 1928 in Ridge, Maryland to the late Julia Hewlett and William Augus Gough.|
Sarah entered into Holy Matrimony to her life-long friend and soul mate, James Benedict Dyson. From this union, they welcomed three sons; James Herbert Dyson, John Furman Dyson and Larry Darnell Dyson. Sarah and her husband resided in the St. Inigoes area, where they made a home for their family and opened their doors to many friends, as well.
Sarah dedicated her life to Christ and her faith in Him kept her going all of these years. She was a faithful member of St.Luke’s United Methodist Church, where she enjoyed attending and receiving the Word, until her illness made it too difficult for her to endure.
Sarah was a homemaker who enjoyed cooking, gardening and having children around her. You could always find five or six children at her home every day. She loved children and they loved her. Sarah had such a good heart and her smile just lit up a room. She loved to have people come around, just to visit. There was nothing that she wouldn’t do for anyone.
Sarah was known as the “Queen” of baking. If it went in an oven, she could bake it. Even when Sarah was using the old-style oven back in the day (if you can remember), she was still the “Queen” of baking. As a matter of fact, her baked goods tasted even better from that old oven. Family members were always calling on Sarah when they needed or just wanted to taste some delicious, old-fashioned baked goods. In addition to baking, she enjoyed canning such things as peaches and pears and making jelly. Sarah would gather up all of the children and everyone would be working.
Sarah was preceded in death by her husband, James A. Dyson; son, Larry D. Dyson; grandson, Deshaun Dyson; parents, Julia Hewlett and William Gough; eight siblings, Joe Gough, Mary Gough, Geneva Shorter, Lillian Dove, Raymond Hewlett, Wren Gough, James Gough and Robert Gough.
Sarah leaves to cherish her memories her sons, James Herbert Dyson of Anderson, S.C. and John Furman Dyson, of Temple Hills, MD.; four grandchildren, whom she loved, DeeDee, Tamara, Shawn and LaShonda; her great-grandchildren, whom she adored, Shaquan, Jamea, Ireanah, Destiny, Cashauna, DauShaun, DaiNajah, KenShaun, Karen, Brandy and Jordan Badger.
She also leaves behind a loving and caring person, Theresa Young, whom Sarah loved very much and referred to her as “the daughter she always wanted” and who was always there for her Aunt Sarah.
In addition, to cherish Sarah’s memories are a host of loving nieces, nephews, other relatives, neighbors, friends and church members.
Visitation will be Saturday, March 23, 2013 at 9:00 am until time of Service at 10:00 am at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church, 12880 Point Lookout Road, Ridge, MD. Interment will follow in the church cemetery. Reverend Leroy Boldley will be officiating.

|Jarboe, Judith Ann
Birth: 1937-08-24 in Waterloo, New York
|Judith Ann Jarboe, 75 of Piney Point, MD passed away on March 15, 2013 at the Hospice House of St. Mary's, Callaway, MD. Born August 24, 1937 in Waterloo, New York, she was the only child of the late Ruth Helen Huson and Emory NMN Barrett.|
Judy had been a resident of St. Mary's County since about 1961.
She retired from Maryland Bank & Trust Company in 1987, after 22 years of service as a Commercial Loan Officer. Judy later worked part-time, for more than ten years, as House Mother at the Marcy House.
Her retirement years were spent doting on her grandchildren and providing volunteer services. She and her husband have been active members of the St. George Island Improvement Association (SGIIA) since taking up residence on the island in 1986. She had served as the SGIIA treasurer for the last 25 years. Judy was recognized on several occasions for her dedicated service to the community, which included caretaker for elderly residents, providing secretarial tasks for the local Sheriffs Department and her tireless support of SGIIA activities. In her retirement, she was also able to pursue her avid interest in her family's ancestry and as the family historian she had been able to share her enthusiasm with her family.
Judy had been the center of the family since the day she was born and had always taken great pleasure in making those around her happy. She had an enormous capacity to love and the gift of making anyone she met feel welcome by striking up a conversation and showing a personal interest in their life. Those that knew her fully appreciated her warmth, easy going spirit and love of life. Her desire to put others before self and live by the "Golden Rule" has forever endeared her to all whose lives she has touched. She has been a true blessing to family and friends and will be sorely missed.
Judy is survived by her husband of 39 years, Benedict P. Jarboe (also known as Sam). She also leaves five children, Paul F. Gary, Jr. (Jeanne) of Princess Anne MD, Tamara A. Gary and Christopher S. Gary (Patty) both of Leonardtown MD, William P. Jarboe (Kathy) and Wayne P. Jarboe both of Lewiston ME, four grand children, John R. Lee, IV (Kari), Melissa A. Bean (R. J.), Jessica L.
