Janet Ann Hensley



On October 05, 2020, Janet Ann Hensley lost her courageous battle with Huntington Disease at the age of 51. Janet was born July 27, 1969 to Janice Reese Hensley and the late Lecil Edward Hensley. 


Janet owned and operated Professional Electrolysis of Asheville for 20 years until her illness prevented her from working.  She was a member of First Assembly God.  She loved to read and spending time with family and friends.  Janet will be greatly missed by all who knew her; and due to COVD-19, we missed many months of special times with Janet.


Janet is survived by, in addition to her mother, one daughter, Laken Faith Hensley; one granddaughter, Myla Jane Pressley, who was her pride and joy; one brother, Brian Hensley and his wife, Jill; her nephew, Landon Cade Hensley; a special aunt, Brenda Lewis; and many cousins and friends. 


A funeral service will be held on Sunday, October 11, 2020 at 3:00 p.m. in the Chapel of Beam Funeral Service with Pastor David Edwards officiating.  Interment will follow at Chapel Hill Baptist Church Cemetery.  The family will receive from 2:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m., one hour prior to the service, at the funeral home. 


Flowers are acceptable and appreciated.  Those wishing to make a memorial donation in Janet’s memory are asked to consider, Black Mountain Center Foundation, Inc., 932 Old U.S. 70 Highway, Black Mountain, North Carolina 28711 or by visiting www.bmc-foundation.org.


Janet’s family would like to send a special “thank you” to the staff of Black Mountain Neuro-Medical Treatment Center, Dr. Wilkie, Dwayne Finley, and the staff of G3 Unit, for the wonderful and loving care that was given to Janet.

Janice and Brian, I'm so sorry for your loss. She was such a sweet person loved by all that knew her. I have so many fond memories of our friendship. I hadn't seen her in so long since I moved away. My heart hurts for all of you I know that this has to be a terrible loss for you and your family. She is in heaven now back to her old self loving life and has no more problems. Idk what all she insured but that's over now. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
