Janey Dowdy Burnett, 65, of Grayson passed away Thursday, Sept. 21 at Halifax Hospice in Port Orange, FL, after a year long battle with cancer.
Mrs. Burnett was born November 16, 1951, a daughter of the late Wick and Nancy Dowdy. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by a sister, Jeanie Gussler and two brothers, John Swimm and Charlie Rouse.
Janey is survived by her husband, Donald Keith Burnett; a son, Cody Mitchell Burnett, a sister, Katrina O'Bryan and a very special niece, Nancy Rouse and a host of friends.
Janey was a self made business woman who worked 30 plus years through the CWA Union in the Telephone Industry. She loved her flowers and plants, good music, dancing, good food and walks on the beach. She never met a stranger. She will be sorely missed by family, friends and anyone who ever met her.
A private ceremony was held in Florida at her favorite beach.
