Janie was my mentor and friend while teaching at Leona Middle School. My heart breaks for all family and friends. She will be missed. She was always a shoulder to cry on, a friend to lend and ear, and a confidant in times of need. Love to all!

Mrs. King was always one of my favorite teachers and looking back, seemed a natural at it. She was also my neighbor, and she and her husband were very nice to me. My condolences to the family.
