Jania Faye Ross Cakl Obituary
ODESSA - Jania Faye Ross Cakl, age 76, of Odessa, passed from this life on Sunday, October 7, 2018. She was born in Lamesa, TX on Thursday, April 30, 1942 to the late E.M. Ross and Katy Vell (Franklin) Rotan. Jania married Carl Lee Cakl in Odessa on November 20, 1970 and he preceded her to their heavenly home on August 10, 1987. She was a retired postal worker.

Although most of her family knew her as Jania Faye, she was "Grandma Jan" to her grandkids and great-grandkids, who were the light of her life. She took great joy in her time with her family. She was outgoing and loving and a wonderful story teller. Jania Faye was a jokester who was often known to say, "If I didn't love 'ya, I wouldn't pick on 'ya!" She enjoyed walking on the beach, reading, and playing her game on her phone.

In addition to her beloved husband, Jania is also preceded in death by her father: E.M. Ross; mother and stepfather: Katy Vell and Ben Rotan; two sons: Joseph Duane Deutsch and Ross Lee Cakl; three brothers: Everett Duane Ross, Dee Albert Ross and Kalben Roger Rotan; and her grandson: Carl David Cakl.

Those left to cherish her love and memory are her daughter: Susan Clinton; six grandchildren: Josh, Cassie, Alyssa, Brittney, Stormy, and Novelyne; and three great-grandchildren: Ashur, Arian, and Jessie.

Memorial services will be at 10:00 am on Saturday, October 13, 2018 at Acres West Funeral Chapel, officiated by Bro. Mike Bartlett. Services are entrusted to Acres West and condolences to the family may be sent online at acreswestfuneral.com.
