Martha Jane Meeks, known to most as Janie (Woody), passed away with family by her side, after an eight-month fight with stage 4 renal cancer on May 15, 2017.

Janie was born in Roswell, NM, on February 10, 1958, to William M. Woody and Katherine F.(King) Woody. Both parents have preceded her in death. She was one of 5 children born in this family.

Janie attended Dexter schools all her childhood and graduated from there in 1976.

Five Nephews; Kim Brewer, Randy and Mike Robertson, Jacob and Joshua Woody. And one very special niece, Evelyn Woody.
