You were the perfect secretary when I taught at Clearwater Elementary. I so loved our time together when Darlene would call and ask me to make a birthday cake for you. What a blessing you were to my life. Praying for your precious children in this great loss.

All my love to Mrs. Janie's family. She was very special to me. I spent many fun hours eating, talking, teasing around the kitchen counter. I will miss her. It is comforting to know she is with Jesus..

Gwen Vaughn Jan 20 2018 12:00 AM

We send all of you our thoughts and prayers during this time. Janie was a wonderful person and we have all been blessed to have had her in our lives. I will always remember her warm sense of humor, great smile, and generosity. Our family was fortunate to have known Janie and Charles through church and warm summers at the lake. They enriched our lives and leave behind a legacy in the outstanding children they raised and the souls they touched.
