Janie was born on June 15, 1962 in Lamesa, Texas to the late Joe and Joann Reyes. She was one of ten siblings having four sisters: Virginia, Mary, Emma and Oralia (Chula), and five brothers: Roy, Joe, Jesse, Robert and Richard.
She grew up in Levelland, Texas where she attended Levelland High School. She met and married the late Florentino Ojeda, Jr. Together they were blessed with six children: Julian, Arron, Rachel, Melissa, Vanessa and Cassandra.
Janie was one of a kind. Anyone who knew her was very familiar with her sense of humor, forward manner, never ending sarcasm and cooking. It didn’t matter what was in the fridge or the cabinets, Janie was making dinner and her hands were quick when it came to making tortillas.
She is preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Tino; older brother, Roy; granddaughter, Jasmine Robledo; and sister-in-law, Vicky Reyes.
Those left to cherish her memory are her children, Julian Ojeda and wife, Mindy, Arron Ojeda and wife, Megan, Rachel Ojeda and husband, Felix, Melissa Ojeda, Vanessa Lopez and husband, Steven, and Cassandra Ojeda; 18 grandchildren, Michael, Alyssa, Ashley, JJ, Jacob, Amiah, Arron Jr., Ariel, Damien, Kamryn, Jeremiah, Rey, Brooklyn, Khloe, Maddie, Faith, Kenzie and Bella; siblings, Joe Reyes, and wife, Terri, Virginia Castillo and husband, Gene, Mary Franco, Jesse Reyes and wife, Blanca, Robert Reyes and wife, Ida, Richard Reyes, Emma Hernandez and husband, Ernie, and Chula Garza and husband, Bally, and many many nieces and nephews.
The memories she left will forever be shared, always be remembered and never forgotten.
