She was a talented seamstress and devoted military wife for 23 years to her husband, Vic. She loved to garden, boat, and travel in their motor home. Most of all, Janie loved her family. Janie was the most loving, caring person you could ever meet. She adored cooking for and entertaining anyone and everyone who crossed her path.

A celebration of Janie’s life will be held at a later date.
