Janie was born on July 24, 1950 to Henry and Josephine (Hernandez) Garcia in Mumford, TX. She attended Hearne High School and later obtained her GED. She married the love of her life, Johnny Castillo, on September 15, 1973 in Bryan, TX. With this marriage came two children, Josie and Johnny Jr. Janie worked as a custodian for Bryan Independent School District and Texas A&M. She was a massive fan of the Dallas Cowboys, New York Yankees, and of course, the Aggies. Janie enjoyed tailgating with her family and friends while cheering her team on. She loved watching her grandsons, Joseph and Diddy, play baseball. Her Cowboy cheerleaders were her only granddaughters, Madison and Gigi. Janie also enjoyed baking, as she loved making her oldest grandson, Michael (who she called the “Miracle Baby”), a birthday cake, as well as her yearly requested pecan and pumpkin pies. After her retirement, she watched over her grandchildren as a wonderful babysitter. During that time, she developed a very special bond with her great niece, Milania Ramirez. If you wanted to know something about “Momo”, she would spill the beans. She also appreciated country and Tejano music and most of all, adored her family. Before his death in 2012, Janie & Johnny were married for 38 blessed years.
Janie is preceded in death by her father, Henry, husband, Johnny, and sister, Janie Garcia.
She is survived by her mother, Josephine; daughter Josie Flores and husband Michael; son Johnny Castillo Jr. and wife Sandra; five grandchildren; seven brothers: Tony, Henry, Joe, Pete, Tim, Jim, and Leo; three sisters: Margaret Rapp, Mary Chavarria, and Sally Chavarria, and numerous nieces and nephews.
