Janie Hodge Langford

Janie (Hodge) Langford passed away peacefully Monday at home surrounded by her family. She began her journey on September 18, 1930 and was the older sister to 6 siblings: Mildred (deceased), Jimmy, Yvonne, Doris (deceased), Wilson, and Sherrie. In 1948, she married Odessa Langford and they had two daughters, Elaine Green (Don) and Tricia Grey (Wayne). They were both members of Union Baptist Church. Odessa preceded her in death 19 years ago. Janie drove a school bus for Alachua County until retirement, but always made time for her family and the best home-cooked meals ever. Her love and care helped shape the lives of her 4 grandchildren (Delane, Lisa, Garrett, and Justin) and 5 great-grandchildren (Morgan, Ty, Briana, Alexa, and Dolan). Though she didn’t get the chance to meet Dolan, we know she will be looking over her, and all of us. She was the most generous and caring person we have ever known, and her loss will be greatly felt all our lives. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations please be made to the National Kidney Foundation, or to Hospice. A private service is being planned for immediate family members.
