Janis Gale Mathis of Franklin, TN. December 9, 1949 - June 29, 2021 born in Bay Springs, MS, she was a resident of Franklin, TN for the past 26 years.

She was direct, dedicated, and pioneering. She used these qualities daily throughout her life as a mother, as a grandmother, as a hairdresser and as a loyal friend. She loved being a hairdresser even from her early years of styling the neighbors' hair as a teen for fifty cents a head and continued finding joy in discovering just the right style for each person throughout her life. She loved sharing words of encouragement with those God put in her path.
