Janey, was a loving and kind lady. I have known Janey most of her life. I loved it when she would play the guitar and sing her own music most of them praising our Lord. We all went to Community United Methodist Church.
Janeys parents Betty and Bud were one of our best friends.
Janey and Jerry hosted our church group many times , we would go for lunch Jerry would have a fire going we would roost hot dogs the ladies would all bring a side dish there was always plenty of good food , after eating there was plenty of good fellowship we would gather around the fire Janey would play the guitar and we would all sing hymns.
It was always a good time at Janey and Jerry's. Janey and I were Facebook friends so we kept in touch that way. She will be missed.

Janey possessed a loving and caring spirit that she shared freely with others and she remains in my fond memories of our times together.

She filled so many lives with happiness and love. Wishing you peace to bring comfort during this difficult time.

To the Family of Janey,
I was shocked to see the news of Janey's passing in today's paper. She was always so vibrant and vivacious. I will definitely miss her. She was definitely a "one of a kind" friend to have. She was always so kind and loving. Thinking of her makes my heart yearn that she was still here.

Aunt Janey, I still remember you playing your guitar at one of my birthday parties and many summers swimming at your old house! I feel more than blessed to have had you and uncle Jerry in my life and being there for my kids birthday celebrations! There are no words to describe the pain we are feeling, but I know grandma is holding you tight up there in heaven! We love you!!!
