I’ve never known a finer, dearer, sweeter, caring person than my Aunt Janie. I loved her personality and she was like my second mother. I’ll miss her terribly, but I know she’s no longer in pain. She had suffered too long. I know she and Uncle Jim are celebrating their reunion!
I worked with Janie Stillians many years ago in Texarkana at Grim's Drug store. Would love to share some of the memories with family if you will call me. I don't drive or have a computer so can't attend the service. Please call me at your convenience.Sorry for your loss,Ernestine Vicky,501-758-0022
Joyce and family, I am so sorry for your loss! I pray that the Lord will help y’all find comfort during this time of sorrow. Ms. Stillians was a sweet lady. She will be greatly missed.
I was blessed to have met this loving talented woman! Heaven is enjoying her singing!
