Condolences for Janie Clifford Palmer Dobbins

Mr. & Mrs. Dobbins were my 2nd parents, and the boys my brothers. They always made me feel at home. When she would make one of her famous pies the boys would have to wait for meal time before having any…unless I came over. Mark would call me, “Mom is making a pie”. My response, “I’m on the way.” As soon as I’d walk in the door, Mrs. Dobbins would say, “Hey Johnny, I just pulled a pie out of the oven, have a seat, I’ll get you and the boys a piece.” It always worked. On December 31, 1972, while at their house she broke the bad news to Mark and I about the passing of Roberto Clemente…we cried. I also remember the summer of 1973, Howell Park, I was pitching against Mark’s team. Mark came up to bat and Mrs. Dobbins was yelling encouragement to him as he strode to the plate, and just before my first pitch she yelled, “Johnny, you better not hit Mark.” As an adult, the Dobbins’ embraced my wife and children and made a lasting impression on them. We all remember her Texas Turtle Brownies (we still have her hand-written recipe card). Mrs. Dobbins, you are highly esteemed in my family, we will always love and remember you. Give Mr. Grover and Sherman a hug for us. “A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.” (Proverbs 22:1). Mark, Marty and Matt, we love you all and wish we could be with you. Johnny, DeeDee, Stephen & Clint Myshrall

We will always remember Janie and Grover but especially the three years together working with us in California. They brought Louisiana and LSU to the West Coast. They will be missed but are together again in a wonderful place!

A beautiful example of a loving Aunt. We share many memories of life on the farm with my mom Inez and sisters and cousins. Gods blessings to you my cousins. Praying for her soul..
