Jane Johnston Rode, 96, went home to be with her Lord Jesus on Aug. 17, 2014, at Mountain Valley Living Center near King, North Carolina.
Jane was born June 11, 1918, in DuBois, to the late Quegga and Vernon Johnston. She was married to John Calvin Neeley Sr.
She graduated from DuBois High School.
Jane was a wonderful Sunday School teacher, especially to her grandchildren. She created Bible scenes from poster boards for all her students.
Jane was famous for her knitting of things for missionaries to take to Peru and for orphans at a DAR orphanage.
She loved primitive camping and fishing.
Jane was an active member of the Daughters of the American Revolution. She worked with the Red Cross in World War II.
Mom will be missed, but we will join her someday at Hallelujah Square. Well done, "Thou good and faithful servant!"
Jane leaves behind many friends in St. Petersburg, Fla., where she lived most of her life. We all say Farewell and see you soon.
She is survived by a daughter, Patricia Jane; a son, John Calvin Neeley Jr.; five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents; a sister, Shirley Joan Johnston; and a brother, James Barnette Johnston.
A memorial service will be held at a later date.
Cox-Needham Funeral Home is respectfully serving the Hutson family.
