Words cannot describe the kind of wife, mother, sister, aunt, or friend Janie was. She was fierce, fun, loyal, and above all else, loving. Janie never met a stranger and brightened every room she stepped into. Anywhere Janie went, the fun followed. Janie had the rare gift of knowing exactly what someone needed before they did. She would always like to be on Lake Murray, on the beach shores, or lounging around by the pool with her family. An avid nature lover, she loved sitting in her quiet oasis and watching her hummingbirds and any new wildlife that came through.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations in Janie’s name to Pawmetto Lifeline, 1275 Bower Pkwy, Columbia, SC 29212, or your local ASPCA agency, such as Lexington County Animal Services, 321 Ball Park Rd, Lexington, SC 29072.
