As cousins growing up in the same town, we and our families shared many happy occasions through the years! After Janie moved away from Fort Worth, we still stayed in touch and always exchanged Christmas greetings with messages about our lives. My sympathy to her family. May God's love comfort you at this sad time.

My cousin Janie and I were babies together. To all of us she was Mary Jane. Her dad was my mother’s brother. She was such a lovely person, friendly, always helping people, and active in her church and the community. She was a lovely example to all of her children and grandchildren. Always pleasant and gracious. She inspired and encouraged everyone. She painted pictures, taught painting. made quilts, cooked, did volunteer work at the hospital, led Marriage Encounter workshops, did genealogy research, wrote articles for several magazines and wrote several books. With every letter and phone call she said : “Keep in touch.” She was such a gift to all of us, an inspiration to her family.

My wife Janyth and I were friends with the Halls and the Taylor's . for over 67 years. We traveled to Corning, NY, Canada and Alaska. Doug and Joe Paul would switch being the lead RV and we always stayed in the middle. We ate together, camped together and have a lifetime of special memories of all our time spent together. Our thought and prayers are with Doug and Kathy and Cindy and the rest of the family. We love Janie and will miss her friendship.

Janyth and Mary Jane were friends since grade school
In 1953 we met Doug when he went to Senior Prom with Janie. We double dated, went to each other's weddings and have been friends over 67 years. As couples ,and with our children, we have had many good times together. We spent time in Colorado, took RV trips to many locations and had many fun adventures.
Janie was a wonderful friend and will be greatly missed.
Our prayers are with Doug, their girls, Kathy and Cindy and their families.
With Love, Janyth and Jacob Price

Mary Jane was like a second mother to me and her husband Doug second father as well and their two daughters Cindy and Cathy as well one of my favorite memories is going and staying with them in Colorado watching George play with his pet rock. Every time they would come over I would come up and hug her because I was so glad to see her such a sweet sweet person don't make them that way no more
