Janis was such a warm outgoing person whose smile did indeed light up a room. I taught 5th Sunday School at FBC with her along with my husband Jerry and she was always cheerful and laughing. What an asset she was to FBC and to everyone she came in contact with! Melissa and Michael, I'm so sorry for your loss and know that your mother is with you in spirit.
