Her wish was granted when her children were by her side during final her moments. Devotion to her faith, church, family and friends was most important to Jan. She sang in the church choir and was a very supportive fan during her husband’s softball days. She always gave her time and talents freely to her family, friends and neighbors with a smile and never asked for anything in return. She gave selflessly to all. She was the true definition of a Christian woman.
