Janie Smith Mayo
April 5, 1939 - March 22, 2015
Bentonville, Arkansas
Jane Smith Mayo, 75, of Naples, Maine and Bentonville, Arkansas
entered eternal life on Sunday, March 22, 2015 at Mercy Hospital in
Rogers, Arkansas.  She was born April 5, 1939 in Lake Wales, Florida,
the daughter of Arthur and Drusilla Smith of New Vineyard, Maine.  She
was raised in a home where values, ethics, morals and integrity were
based on a foundation of faith.

Janie, as she preferred to be called, was an amazing light in the lives of
many.  She was an eternal optimist that always saw the bright side of
life.  She touched the hearts and nurtured the souls of many who graced
her journey in life.  She had a loving and caring spirit and had a unique
way of making people feel special by her living expression shining
through the kindness in her face, the kindness in her eyes, the kindness in
her smile and the love in her heart. She was a gracious soul that had a
deep beauty inside and out and she will be remembered and honored for
how brightly her flame burned.    

Janie started spending the winters with her daughter in Bentonville in
November of 2013 and she spent the summers at her cottage in Naples,
Maine.  She was always the happiest when she was at the lake in
Maine.  She truly felt at peace there and always loved being by the
water.  She was thankful for every day and considered each one a gift.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Paul Sears Mayo, and also
her son, Mark Stephen Mayo who were both lost to cancer too soon.  

Janie is survived by one daughter, Heather Mayo of Bentonville,
Arkansas, her daughter-in-law, Beth Mayo, and two grandchildren,
Stephanie and Stephen Mayo of Salem, New Hampshire.

Memorial services will be held on Thursday, April 30th at Hunt Chapel
at Pinnacle Memorial Gardens in Rogers, AR commencing at 10:30 am.

In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made in her honor to the
American Cancer Society.  Janie was a 19 year breast cancer survivor.
