Janelle was born Nov. 16, 1958, in Claremore, and made her home in Watts, with the love of her life, Steven Coffee. She worked for the Cherokee Nation as a receptionist at the casino in West Siloam Springs. Janelle enjoyed getting to boss her children around almost as much as getting to spend time with each one of them. She enjoyed getting a chance to cook a meal for her friends and loved ones, and on game night she was always in front of the television watching an OU football game. When Janelle had time to relax, she could be found reading a good book, watching a movie, or her favorite, playing Farmville. She loved her dog, Zeus, and being outside messing in the garden. Janelle will be missed by all that were lucky enough to know her.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Clarence and Annas (Cummings) Downing; and sister, Vicky Christie.

Those left to cherish her memory include her husband, Steven Coffee; two sons, Donald Coffee and Jamie Settlemyre; daughter, Amber Settlemyre; two brothers, Timmie Downing and Jimmie Downing; seven grandchildren, Cainon Lay, Bon Settlemyre, Skyler Settlemyre, Kodi Settlemyre, Arron Settlemyre, Paige Lay and Briona Barber, as well as, many other friends and loved ones.

Reed-Culver Funeral Home, 117 W. Delaware, (918) 456-2551.
