The family will receive friends other times at the home of her daughter Angela Dancy Knutson at 219 McCoy Rd. Janie was born in Rockingham County to the late James Noah Marlow and Adell Bernice Loftis Marlow. She worked with ZARN plastics for over 30 years and retired after 10 years of service with White Ridge Plastics. She loved gardenias, Blowing Rock, relaxing on the front porch and watching the cooking channel. She was a wonderful cook. She was famous for her Macaroni and Cheese as well as her Potato Salad. Most of all she loved her children and grandchildren. She is survived by her husband of 57 years, John C. Dancy; children, John C. Dancy II and Angela Dancy Knutson (Keith); grandchildren, Matthew and Makayla Dancy as well as Nicholas Knutson; siblings, Jim “Jimmy” Marlowe (Linda), Bernice Marlow Jones (Harold) as well as a large extended family. The family would like to add a special thanks to Ronnie Tate and Laura Pleasant for their special care and concern during a difficult time for our family.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Mrs. Janie. I met her and Mr. John at our Community Watch Meetings. She was a very friendly lady and loved to laugh. She was a delightful lady.

My first trip to the Myrtle Beach was with Janie and John. will never forget. we both got the worst sunburn of our life. It was clouldy that day and we laid on the beach for hours , not realizing we were still getting those bad rays. there are other good memories but it was a blessing just to know her.
