Janette Pearl Story, 71, of San Angelo went to be with the Lord on Tuesday, November 14, 2017 in San Angelo. Janette was born August 24, 1946 in Ballinger, Texas to Louis Baca, Jr. and Loreen Farmer Baca. She grew up in Miles, Texas and graduated from Miles High School. Janette married her high school sweetheart and the love of her life, Johnny Story on April 9, 1965. They shared 40 beautiful years together. Janette worked as a receptionist for Dr. Arledge, a local pediatrician, for many years and loved the children and families she served while working there. She and her husband Johnny also owned and operated a ceiling fan company called “Fan-Fair” for many years, as well. However, most of her adult career was spent climbing the ladder to the General Manager’s position at Southland Park of Angelo overseeing the day to day operations of the property. She dearly loved her Southland family and spent 35 years working there. Janette was a member of various organizations in San Angelo. She was the current President of the San Angelo Gun Club, and the chairman and event coordinator/founder of Daughters at The Range. Although she never had any children of her own, she had a passion for helping all children, especially helping to create strong independent young ladies by helping them learn self-defense. Janette was a loving daughter, sister and aunt with many beautiful qualities. She never met a stranger and loved people. She was always very social and outgoing, and always had something planned on her agenda. She loved to travel and do photography, and was an expert marksman and teacher of weapon classes. Janette was a very hard-working person and loved to have everything very organized. Most of all, she was a strong woman of faith with strong convictions. Her love of life, her vibrant personality, and her incredible giving nature and love for her family and friends will remain in our hearts forever! We will dearly miss her! Janette was preceded in death by her parents and her husband Johnny. She is survived by her Sister, Karen McKenzie and her husband Doug, of Farmer’s Branch, TX; her Brother, Charles Baca III and his wife, Elaine, of Miles, TX; her Sister-in-law: Kay Frannie Wright, of San Angelo; numerous Nieces and Nephews and many special friends. A celebration of Janette’s life will be 10:00 A.M., Saturday, November 18, 2017 at Harper Funeral Home Chapel with Rev. William Rosser officiating.
