    Janie Steinhagen, Miss Janey, was one of the brightest, most optimistic, intelligent women it has been my privilege to know. Her smile and edgy humor always put a smile on my face and her acceptance of all permanently endeared her to me. She most definitely left this world a better place. My sympathy to all of her dear family.

    I remember Janie from first grade, a beautiful little girl always in ruffled pinafores, all through 12 grades and as the Queen of the Neches Festival. She was as sweet as she was beautiful..inside and out. My condolences to Mark and the entire Steinhagen family in this very sad time. Cynthia Robichaux Smith,, Johnson City,Texas
