Aunt June, November 20, 2020 I have known Jana since we were in the 6th grade. For my 12th birthday party she used her baby sitting money to buy me a beautiful necklace. I still have that necklace. It was so good to see her and visit with Jana at our 50th class reunion. Jana was a beautiful sweet person. I will miss her. Darlene McNully Fields, November 19, 2020
