To the family of Jan .....I remember Jan as our secretary at school when my kids were small.  She was always so  helpful.  I also watched her curl she made everything she did look easy.  In the past 3 years I volunteered at Jackson house. I would always chat with her and remind her of how I knew her.  When we would sing some familiar songs I would point at the words and she would follow along.  I would sing and chat.  She had the warmest eyes.  I will miss her. To her family.  Please take care during this time that you hurt so.  Her legacy will continue through you.  God Bless hugs Kathy

 I just read in our local Journal that Jan had passed away. I was saddened but was able to bring up many fond memories. I worked with Jan at Ashcroft Elementary as a teacher and she was the  school secretary. Jan was meticulous in how she did her work. She was also so beautiful with her appearance and personality. How fortunate we were to have Jan the first person everyone would encounter at the front office- what an ambassador!  When she retired I would often meet her on her walks and at the Legion. Deepest sympathy to each you.

With loads of love, Paige Kimberley
