  1. My deepest sympathy, Janelle, on the loss of your precious sister. She couldn’t have asked for a better sister than you! May she rest in peace and may perpetual shine on her.

  2. Truly fit 100 percent the definition of a “sweet little old lady”. You could see Jesus in her face at all times. PSUMC and Singing Stars will never forget her faithful service for so many years, and her great love for fellow seniors. I will dedicate Christmas Eve music in memory of her.

  3. We love you so much. You had so many talents, and shared them with love.
    You are in our thoughts. The wonderful memories of spending time with Aunt Joleta will live on.
    It goes without saying, you will be missed.
    May you rest in peace.
