Janie was born in Rodessa, LA on February 27, 1937 to Millard and Helen May. At the age of two Janie and her family moved to Bakersfield, CA. Janie was the oldest of many siblings, Frank, Betty, Jerry, Fredda, Jimmy, and Jean. She attended East High School and at the young age of 16 fell in love with a Navy Sailor, Roger L. Paulk. Roger and Janie were married on August 15, 1953. Together they loved and cherished their four boys, Roger, Robert, Ronald, and Richard. This love extended to include 11 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren. Janie's mission in life was to serve the Lord, to be a good Wife, Mother, Grandmother, and Great Grandmother. She was the foundation to our family. In everything she did her family always came first.
She went home on July 5, 2014 to live in everlasting life with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. She was full of life and showed it by her faith in God, always reminding us "you should be in Church." The way she lived her life will have a lifetime effect on her family and friends. Forever in our thoughts, hearts, and minds. Our love for you will never end.
