Janie Lee Nelson, 60, of Anderson, passed away February 22, 2017, at her residence in Anderson. She was born on May 7, 1956, in Anderson and resided most of her life in Anderson.
She retired from the Wing On Inn Restaurant after 20 years.
She had an inner strength that could move mountains, a faith that only miracles are made of and a kindness that could lift the saddest heart. Her loving, gracious spirit was contagious, touching everyone whom was blessed to be around her. She treated every day as a gift, though she herself was a gift to every day. Her fearless devotion to her family and her timeless dedication to her friends served as an inspiration to us all. She will always be remembered as the Queen, the Queen of our hearts and of all that is beautiful in this world.
