Visitation and service for Janette Marie Hodge Moreland will be 4 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 17, 2017, at Cross Trails Church in Fairlie, Texas, with nephew Rev. Shannon Moreland and brother-in-law Rev. Joe Pierce officiating.
Jones-Walker and Son Funeral Home of Commerce, Texas, is handling the arrangements.
Janette Marie Moreland, known as "Jan" to family and friends, was a humorous storyteller, with a strong mind and loving soul who touched many hearts over the past 73 years of her life on Earth. She spent many of her younger years at her husband's side remodeling homes around Hopkins County, Texas. She was a natural interior decorator, a talented fixer-upper long before it became so popular.
She had a bright green thumb and loved her gardening and could grow anything, as well as tell you the name of every plant and tree.
Her greatest love was given to her family members, her children, her sisters, her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and others who found a special place in her heart over the years.
She leaves her loved ones with wonderful memories and stories that will be passed down for generations to come.
She will be greatly missed by all of us who benefited from her presence in our lives and who sought her love, advice and experience over the years. Her life will be celebrated and her absence will be mourned.
She leaves behind her beloved children; daughter and son-in-law, Janna Kay and David Redington of Sulphur Springs, Texas; son and daughter-in-law Tony Ladane and Valerie Moreland of Wills Point, Texas; and daughter-in-law Tracy Roberts Moreland of Josephine, Texas; grandchildren Amber Kay and Dustin Adams, Brody and Sarah Potts of Sulphur Springs, and Tanner and Tayler Moreland of Josephine, Texas; great-grandchildren Mallari Brooke Moody, Mason Dwain Potts, Maddox Ray Potts, Anderson Garrett Adams, Haygen Brody Potts, and Marlee Kay Williams, all of Sulphur Springs; Hallei Danielle Moreland and Haylen Dalane Moreland of Josephine; sisters Carolyn R. Sands of Wills Point, Diana K. Jackson and J. Annette Pierce of Commerce, Texas, and a very special great-niece, Jessica K Lappin of College Station, Texas.
She left her family peacefully to join her husband, Larry Dwain Moreland; son Marvin Dwain Moreland; beloved grandson, Anthony Ladane Moreland; brother Roy James Hodge; a sister, Peggy Mae Pope; and parents "Chals" Hodge and "Beanie" Reagan in Heaven, as well as other family and loved ones.
