My condolences to your family. Janie helped us with arrangements for our mother a few years back, and we loved talking to her and just getting to know her a little bit. We met up with her again when Mama passed away and were able to talk a bit more. She was so personable and just couldn’t help talking about fishing, which we loved. May God grant you peace and comfort as you face the days ahead.

Tommy, my heart has been broken since I learned of Janie’s death. I was Janie’s best friend all through high school. She was a wonderful friend, and I so regret not staying in touch with her. True friends are hard too find. Janie was spirited, strong, and a true friend. I saw her a couple of years ago, and her first words were “you said you were going to call after graduation”, we laughed, and I said I am so sorry. i moved away after high school, and life happened. However, I am profoundly sorry for your loss. I just can’t believe she is gone. To Janie’s daughters, your mother was a wonderful woman, and I loved her dearly. I lost my mother, and I miss talking to her every day of my life. May God give you peace, and surround you with sweet memories of what an amazing mother you had. She was my dearest friend, and I loved her. May God surround you with his love.

I had the honor and privilege to work with Janie at Forest Lawn Memorial Park. I will miss the days of black cherry ice cream, lunches from the Mustang Cafe and the birthday cakes and pizza for all the employees that she made sure we got. Janie was a fighter and a hero and an awesome co-worker. Rest in peace Janie. May God bless all of the family at this time.

My condolences to Janie’s family.
She was a true little spitfire who loved serving the families through Forest Lawn Memorial Park. Her many, hard-working years proved her dedication. Janie was there when others simply didn’t show up. Having worked along with her through Forest Lawn Funeral Home, she was an inspiration to me and many others in this industry.
Janie, you will be truly missed.

While working in the funeral home, I worked closely with Janie who was in the cemetery office. The last few years she was one of the strongest people I’ve ever known. She’s healed now.
