Jannae was born on May 31, 1948 in Lusk, Wyoming the daughter of Lewis Gene and Ruth (Younkin) Bass. She grew up and received her education; graduating from Torrington High School in 1966. She went on to earn a Bachelors Degree in Education from the University of Wyoming at Laramie.
Jannae then taught elementary education, mostly at Torrington, for the next 25 years. Following the death of her husband, Danny Bernard, in 1995,
Jannae moved to the family ranch north of Guernsey, Wyo. where she loved working the ranch and keeping it going. She had an addition built to her house and made it a welcoming home for her family and friends.
As Jannae stayed on to live and work at the ranch, she continued to build her relationship with God. She enjoyed gardening, growing flowers, doing crafts; and she had an un-believable love for animals. Jannae always continued to educate herself. She was a friend that anyone could come to, and she was an amazing mother and grandmother.
She is survived by her son, Ty Johnson of Torrington, Wyo.; two daughters, Brandie (Rick) Cook of Lingle, Wyo.; and Tiffany Johnson of Idaho Springs, Colo.; five grandchildren, Shaylee Cook, Kaylynn Cook, Cameron Cook, Kasandra Aguallo all of Lingle; and Blake Johnson of Torrington; and her ex-husband and friend, Fred Maddox.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Danny Bernard, her former husband, Tom Johnson; and her brother, Gene Bass, Jr.
