Janiss Clee Everson (maiden name) Carron was a passionate and caring Christian woman.
She was born July 1946 in Eugene, Oregon. She lived in Goldendale for the last 30 years. Janiss died unexpectedly December 28, 2020.
Janiss grew up in Eugene and Longview, Washington. In her younger years she was interested in horses, horse racing, painting, drawing, rock hunting, house plants, and traveling America. She met John, the love of her life, in 1980. They moved to Goldendale in 1990 where they raised and sold Alaskan Malamute dogs. John died in 1998, but Janiss remained in Goldendale where she lived with her cat, Blue, and next to her sister, Lyn.
In later years she developed breathing issues that greatly impacted her quality of life, but she was strong willed and made the best of it with Lyn's support. In addition to her other interests, Janiss became interested in genealogy and did a lot of research into her family tree.
On October 31, 2020, Janiss broke her hip. She was transferred from Klickitat Valley Hospital to the Mid Columbia Medical Center (MCMC) in The Dalles, Oregon. On November 13, she was transferred to Prestige rehabilitation facility in Sunnyside, Washington.
A friend and Lyn went to visit her on December 17. However, that morning Janiss was transferred to Astria Hospital in Sunnyside after being diagnosed with pneumonia. Two days later, the hospital reported that Janiss had contracted SARS-COV2 and was diagnosed with COVID-19. She was immediately put on a ventilator. She almost died on December 27, but CPR was performed throughout the night at the insistence of Lyn but against the advice of medical personnel at Astria.
