RIP, Janet. What a pleasure, to have known you, since I was 16 years old. Never knew you to not have that beautiful smile, that came from the heart.
Regards to the family. May GOD comfort you!

Miss Janet was loved by many families including mine! We have so many amazing memories of Miss Janet. Ball cap on, walking stick in hand, spiritedly walking the streets in her neighborhood, that was Miss Janet. Infectious smile, words of wisdom, providing solace in times of need and willingness to lend a hand, that was Miss Janet. Miss Janet’s love for her extended families and neighbors transcended generations, and our love for her was immeasurable.

As heaven welcomed it’s newest angel home, we know that Miss Janet and Mr. Jim are together again, watching over all of us and making our part of the world a much better place!

Aunt Janet was always at every Graduation, Shower, Wedding, Funeral, Birthday, and Cherrix family gatherings. I have never heard her say a cross word about anyone. The last time we spoke
she said that she could not believe she was not able to go to Church because of covid-19. Heaven will have lots of brownies and fudge.
Thank you to Shockley-Barbely families and Whatcoat Church for
love and support for Aunt Janet.

Janet was my second cousin and was sooo dear to us. She was the oldest living relative on the Cherrix side of our family. I live in Salt Lake City & it breaks my heart that i can't be there because of this virus. I am so glad that my twin sons & grandson could be pallbearers. My family is sooo thankful for Janice Shockley for all she did for Janet & for being her friend. She made the best pnut butter I ever ate & I won't eat any more of it. I bet half of Snow Hill had eaten it. RIP in peace Aunt Janet!!
