    Gone too soon for those of us who wanted to get to know her better but I know she was ready to see Ronnie again. Prayers for all of the children and grandchildren. I knew Ronnie since elementary school and he was so sweet so I know Janelle was the same. FHS c/o ’72

    Janelle was such a sweet-kind-loving and happy lady! If she was ever down, I never seen it. I wasn’t around much but the times I was, Janelle was always laughing. Praying for her family! She will be so much happier with her best friend-(Ronnie) and the love of her life! Rest In Peace Janelle, you will be missed!!!
