Janet had a special affection for animals and delighted in their company, and she had a green thumb when it came to tending to her beloved flowers. Lighthouses held a special fascination for her, and she enjoyed the calming presence of these structures.
Among her favorite pastimes were listening to music, particularly the works of Conway Twitty, and savoring a cup of hot coffee. She also relished dining out and cherished the moments spent with her grandsons.
Janet G. Hodges will be deeply missed and forever remembered for her loving spirit and the beautiful memories she created with her family and friends. Her legacy of generosity and fondness for life will remain in the hearts of those who had the privilege of knowing her. May she rest in peace.
