Janie was a wonderful friend and boss at the same time. I worked with her in the Lamar High School kitchen. We had fun at our work and she never asked us to do anything she wouldn’t have done herself. She was the best example of a leader that I ever had. She also made me a quilt rack, at that time she loved working with wood. I have wonderful memories of Janie. God bless you as a family at this time.
