  3. I’m so sorry for your loss. I was privileged to take the Eucharist to Jane until Covid prevented it. Jan was a lovely person, and I’ve missed seeing her. Catherine Barnett

    Jan was a kind, humble servant whose sweet children I enjoyed teaching. Peace be with all of you. Beverly Estes

  4. Beth, Scott, Mark & Brent, we are truly sorry to hear of your Mom’s death. I will never forget what a big help she was to me many years ago. We were at a ball game that Beth and Michelle were playing at, Deron (3 years old at the time) jumped off the bleachers, fell and hit his head, needing some staples. Since Bob was at the work and I was there at the game alone with my kids, Jan immediately offered to drive me to the emergency room. She jumped in and helped when I needed her!

    We are praying for you all!

  5. Well, we haven’t seen your family since playing youth soccer at YCP, but I remember your mom and how nice she was. She always seemed to have it all together. Very sorry for your loss.
    Larry & Susie Jackson

  6. I only got the privilege of meeting her once, but that one time spoke volumes of how sweet and kind she was. She sat while we all told jokes and stories and she laughed right along with us. Her smile lit up the room everytime something caught her and you could feel everyone got brighter every time she smiled. She was a loving and caring woman and she will be greatly missed.

  7. I’m truly sorry for your loss; I know that words can’t convey the depth of grief left in her passing. We’re here for support during this difficult time.

  8. Scott, Mark, Brent and Beth, I am so sorry to hear of Jan’s passing. Up until the time that you guys moved from Sullivan Loop, Jan and i spent many hours visiting each other and sharing stories of family and of course you kids. Your mom was a very kind and loving person…. thoughts and prayers as you mourn the loss of your mother. 💔

  9. I went to nursing school with Jan at KWC. We rode to clinicals together many days. She could always make me laugh. Many great memories with her. So sorry for your loss.
