Mrs. Janet Hutto Yawn, 61, of Hazlehurst, passed away July 15 at her residence.
Janet was born Feb. 9, 1960, in Bacon County. She is preceded in death by her mother, Rena Long Hutto.
Janet was a homemaker and always enjoyed working in her flower beds, was a very talented seamstress, and was always available to work on decorating committees at the church. She also loved shopping, having lunch with her friend group and spending lots of time with her grand-babies and grand-pups. She was a member of Oakland Baptist Church and will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved her.
When I asked the family about Mrs. Janet, the family summed this up very well, “When we think of Mama, we think of a Proverbs 31 woman.”
