Mme Fiona Fortson

Fiona Fortson Janelle, 65, passed on Friday, June 24, 2016, in Ormond Beach, FL. Born in Kokomo, Indiana, on August 13, 1950, to Richard Merle Fortson and Marianne Patterson Fortson (both deceased), she devoted herself to family, friends and education.

Fiona was a graduate of Indiana University-Bloomington and a life-long fan of Hoosier athletics. Greatly cherishing time spent with her family and close-knit circle of friends, Fiona will be remembered for her sharp wit, calm demeanor, care for others, and most of all, infectious laughter. Though she grew up in the Midwest, Fiona made her home at the beach. She committed her spare time to the Christian Surfers Daytona Beach chapter, and spent countless days enjoying the waves and warm weather. Passionate about education, Fiona worked for 30 years as a teacher at Lake Helen, South Daytona and Silver Sands Elementary schools before serving as a Director at Sylvan Learning Center. Her most recent position was at Grace Academy in Ormond Beach.

Fiona is survived by her husband of 33 years, Larry Janelle, her daughter Caitlin Janelle Mauldin (Jared Mauldin) and son Cameron Janelle (Kendall Janelle,) and four grandchildren, Colin, Pierce, Quinn and Graham.

A celebration of life will be held Saturday, July 2, at 9 a.m., on the beach, at Granada Beach approach in Ormond Beach. All who knew Fiona are welcome to attend.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Christian Surfers Association Daytona Beach Chapter at - See more at:
