On Sunday, January 3, 2021, Janell Renea Snead, loving daughter, sister and mother, passed away at the age of 30 in the arms of her loving family.

Janell was born on July 8, 1990 in Paradise, Calif. to Leon and Jaki Snead. She was a remarkable young woman who brought joy and love to all she met.

From serving her community along side her family in the restaurant industry to AA degrees with honors at Butte Community College, Janell excelled at anything she focused on. She was strong in spirit and unshakeable in faith. She survived the Butte County Camp Fire to make a new life in Humboldt County, where she again touched countless lives with her smile and giving heart. She modeled the ability to maintain lifelong friendships, commitment to family, and encouraging people to be their best.

Janell is survived by her parents, her sister and brother, her son and stepchildren, and countless extended family members.
