Janie was very skilled with her hands and grew cotton in her flowerbed and hand-made pillows for her family. She was a skilled seamstress when she was young and made many of Cathy’s clothes. Janie was a big Houston Rockets fan and never missed a chance to see a televised game. Every Christmas she made each family member their own favorite dessert. She was an animal lover and daily watched a couple of websites of hawks and bears. Janie was an avid reader and conversationalist. She was very strong in her faith and enjoyed studying her Bible; her favorite passage was Hebrews 10:7. Janie will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
