Janie was a resident of Shreveport and retired from Kroger. After retirement, her entire world evolved around her grandchildren. She loved taking them to the duck pond and park and being “Mamaw” to them. She was beyond being a wonderful wife, mother, sister, aunt, grandmother, great and great-great grandmother and friend to everyone that was fortunate enough to have known and loved her. She will be terribly missed!
Janie is preceded in death by her parents; husband, Thomas “Coon” Beaird; son, Wayne Beaird; and grandson, Michael Harper. Left to cherish her memory is her daughter, Sandra Glaze and husband, Jimmy; sons, Steve Beaird and wife, Teresa and Tommy Beaird; grandchildren, Stephanie Jamison and husband, Jay; Joey Beaird, Tyler, Taylor and Tinley Beaird; great-grandchildren, Mason Beaird, Jordyn Harper (Hayden), Bryson and Alyse Jamison and Cayden Jamison; and great-great-grandson, Cullen Jamison; and siblings, Mike and wife, Glora Guy, LaNell Powers of Hope, Arkansas, and Barbara and husband, Jack Elkins; a host of numerous nieces and nephews; and John McNeil and all her co-workers at Kroger, “The Kroger Store.”
