    We are praying for your whole family. We loved Janie and will miss her. What a wonderful reunion with Granny and Papaw for her. But our hearts are broken for her daughters, grandchildren and greats. We love you all and you will be in our prayers for comfort and peace that only our Great God can provide.

  2. I know she will be missed. I worked with Janie for many years at THSW when she was employed by Gladney. She was kind and compassionate with the girls, a hard worker and was well liked by all the staff and physicians.

  7. I was so saddened to see on FB that Janie had passed away. She found me about 2 months ago on FB and we had a nice visit on the phone with plans to have lunch this fall. She was loved as a member of our family for several years when she babysat our triplets and two older children on her nights off from the hospital and later at SWAirlines. We take comfort knowing she is no longer suffering and we send our thoughts and prayers to her girls and grandchildren. She was a great lady.
