  1. I know this is a difficult time for your family and I hope during a quiet moment you find solace in the reassurance that is found in the bible at Rev 21:4 it says ‘And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more… The former things have passed away.’

We often told her that we couldn’t imagine our worship services without her. I talked with her many many times and she was hopeful that she would be well and get to continue playing.May God Bless those that she leaves behind. With love, Mary Lee Lytle and Janet’s small Church family here

  6. I knew Janet when we both lived in Asheville back in the 1960’s. She was a very talented person and I know her church will miss her playing as well as her sweet smile.

  7. I was so shocked to see where Janet had passed away. We have known each other since 8th grade, graduated together. She was a dear friend. I loved to hear her play the piano and organ. That was her life. Just saw this yesterday, sorry I could not make it to the service. A couple of friends that knew her also, and myself had a chance to see her last fall. We lost touch over the years but she was so happy to see us. She always had such a sweet smile. May God bless the family during this difficult time.

  9. I was so surprised to read in the paper today of Jane Goff’s death. We worked together in the McDowell County schools, and she taught music to my students. She was a gifted accompanist. She had a kind heart.

  10. I kept up to date w Janet when she was first hospitalized and for several weeks after. I was told she was home and doing better. I saw her in passing in Old Fort early this month and was so happy to see her out and about. I learned of her passing only today. It is very sad news. She visited my dad’s church and sang and played for us many yrs ago. She taught my children ‘music’ in school. What a precious person. Heaven is Richer, but so many will miss her. God Bless all.

  11. I just learned of Ms. Goff’s passing. She was my music teacher in elementary school, and also taught my sister piano lessons. I would think of her often as I would drive by her old home site in Old Fort. My thoughts and prayers are with her friends and family. She was a sweet lady!
