Mrs. Janie Stacy LeFevers departed this life November 19, 2014, following a courageous battle with cancer. She was born in Cannon County, TN, April 18, 1927, and she and her siblings were one of the first sets of triplets born in the county. Her parents were the late Lee Stacy and Lena Odom Stacy.
She was married 66 years to her beloved husband, Mr. James Ray LeFevers, until his passing in 2013. Left to cherish and celebrate the life of this wonderful lady are her daughters, Wanda Snell of Athens, GA, Janie(Sam) Hightower of Richmond, VA and Carla(James) Sheets of Winston-Salem, NC; grandchildren: Christy Snell (Mark) Tucker, Lauren Hightower (Kevin) Ensley, S.J. Hightower, Jenna Freeman, Anna Freeman and Will Freeman; great-grandchildren, Rossi Tucker, Lexie Tucker and Lilly Ensley and brothers: Carl Stacy and James Stacy.
Mrs. LeFevers was a long time member of the Woodbury Church of Christ. She was employed for many years as a teachers aid with the Cannon County Head Start program and at Woodbury Grammar School but her most important work was as a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.
The family wishes to thank Dr. Bill Morgan and St. Mary's Hospital in Richmond, VA, and the Katie Reynolds Hospice House in Winston-Salem, NC for the extraordinary and compassionate care Mrs. LeFevers received while in their care.
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Katie Reynolds Hospice House, the Himalayan Cataract Project and St. Jude's Children Hospital.
