Jane “Janie” Prihoda Myers

Funeral services for Janie Myers, 52 of Giddings,were held on Tuesday, February 21, 2017 at St. Margaret’s Catholic Church in Giddings with Father Uche Andeh officiating.

Jane Marie (Prihoda) Myers was born on June 13, 1964 in Sedalia, Missouri, the daughter of LeRoy Robert Prihoda and Angeline Mary (Canik) Prihoda. She graduated from Giddings High School in 1982. Janie had worked as an office manager in a medical office in Houston for over twenty years. She was a member of St. Margaret’s Catholic Church in Giddings. Janie loved to do crafts and was a collector of all things. She was a nature buff who enjoyed spending time walking and exploring the outdoors. Janie never went anywhere without her two best friends, her dogs, Petey and Cody. She loved everyone and the friendship and love she showed to those she came in contact with will long be remembered by those blessed to cross her path. Following a lifethreatening illness three years ago, Janie’s outlook on life changed. Her faith strengthened and she made it her mission to use her second chance as an opportunity to use her hugs and smiles to show that love unites all of us together.

Janie left this world unexpectedly on Thursday, February 16, 2017 at her home in Giddings.

She was preceded in death by her grandparents, August & Mary Canik and Henry & Lena Prihoda and her father, LeRoy Prihoda.
