Unable to speak, and bedridden, Janie has been moving toward the gates of Heaven. When Jesus called she was ready, and she left this earth being able to run and speak. Parkinson’s Disease no longer has a hold on her, and she is free.

She met the love of her life, her husband Hobe , and they were married on September 5th, 1959.
She is survived by her husband of 57 years, Hobe. Sons Steven Burgan, his wife, Melissa and grandchildren Aubry and Chase Burgan. She is also survived by son Michael, his wife Stacy, and granddaughters Lauren Langer and her husband Josh, and Linsey Burgan.
Her joys for in life were her family, her Scotties, and spending time at either Lake Tenkiller, or on a beach in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
