Obituary

Janie Woodruff Pace, 82, was born in Davie County on March 26, 1935 to Ms. Irene Bitting. She moved to New York after graduating from Davie County Schools, and spent the remainder of her life there. She was devoted to God and gave her life to worshipping. She attended Amity Baptist Church in Queens, NY, and later joined Union Baptist Church in Westchester County, NY. In the 1980's, Janie created The Ladies Circle, and provided special programs for women centered on faith, holidays, and entertainment. The ladies were treated to picnics, tree trimming parties, and other outings, all sponsored by Janie and her generosity. Her motto was, "If I can help somebody." For almost forty years, Janie and her companion, Mr. Owen Boyne ("OJ") shared life together. Mr. Boyne loved her and was with her until her very last day. On February 4, 2018, she died unexpectedly. In addition to "OJ," she leaves to cherish her memory, her relatives, church family, and many friends. After a service in New York, a graveside service took place on February 25th in Mocksville at St. John AME Zion Church Cemetery, officiated by Rev. Temeka Robinson.
