Janilda Hackle, age 58, passed away on Sunday, May 23, 2021 at Memorial Health after a courageous battle with cancer. The Claxton native would graduate from Claxton High School and remain in the Tattnall/Evans area for all of her life. She loved children and her vocation lined up with her life’s passion. Janilda would work for many years in both Tattnall and Candler County schools as a Para-pro. In her free time, she was an avid gardener. Her landscape designs would include all manner of flowering plants. There were times while driving she would see an interesting rock; this would mean crossing traffic to take her prize back to her garden! She loved all kids, but none could hold a candle to her children and later in life her grandchildren. Countless hours would be spent playing and making memories with them. Above all else, according to some members of the family, she loved her fur-baby, Shiloh. Janilda would treat Shiloh just like one of the kids! A woman who found delight in the simple things of life and actually took the time to “smell the roses”; her calming and loving presence will be deeply missed. She is preceded in death by her mother, Hilda Virginia Hackle.
Left to cherish memories of a life well lived are her four children, Alex (Callie) Graham of Statesboro, Rachel Marie Cowart of Collins, Melissa (Reed) Bradley Cook of Glennville, and Virginia (Dylan) Bradley Anderson of Glennville; five grandchildren, Blakely and Paige Graham, Morgan and Molly Cowart, and Mason Cook; father, Jan Hackle of Claxton; a brother, Barry (Connie) Hackle of Claxton; a sister, Lisa Ann (Michael) Deloach of Collins; 3 nephews; 2 nieces; a number of extended family and friends also survive.
