Janene Elizabeth Valentine Thompson, 41, entered suddenly into rest alongside her husband Mark on December 28, 2021 in Reno, NV. She was born January 9, 1980 in Tracy, California.

Janene leaves behind her adoring parents, Jerry and Mary Valentine of Mt. Ranch, her brother Justin Valentine and grandmother Patricia Roux of Manteca.  Janene also leaves aunts, uncles, cousins and many, many friends that loved her dearly.

Janene was raised in Escalon. She graduated from Escalon High School, and would then venture off to become a true artist. She was a hair stylist for years, always interested in the unique and obscure. With an adventurous heart, Janene met Mark and they would become best friends and soulmates. They enjoyed rock climbing, backpacking and spending time outdoors and tending to her goats. Janene was loving, with the kindest soul, she welcomed everyone. She was an eclectic artist, but mostly described as whimsical.

Their ranch in Redrock was a true description of her personality; every item having a story. She was passionate about her love for her family, friend and pets. She would look forward to her dress up photoshoots and always with Mark at her side.

Janene was a beauty in every form, inside and out.  She brought a brightness to everyone around her. She will be remembered as a loving wife, daughter, sister and granddaughter.
