Jana had a strong work ethic and was employed by several business concerns, Firestone, Ryko Manufacturing, Titan Tire and Mainstream Living.
Jana loved people! She was a bartender for many years. She knew how to connect with people and they talked to her about their lives. She also loved to shop. Jana never met a pocketbook she didn't like. She loved going to concerts and enjoyed the blues and R&B music. She was a good cook and her lasagna was the best! She wasn't much on gardening, but she loved the 1 plant that she had.

Jana leaves behind her sons, Brandon Bragg and Justin Watson; her grand children, Leah Watson, Justin Watson II, Jordan Watson and Karissa Fields; her brother Jeffrey Watson and a host of extended family and friends.
