But what I have heard she was a wonderful mother, mother in law, grandma. I can tell just by her picture that she really loved her family members and helping others. but remember that she is in heaven looking over all of the family that she loved and that she is in perfect health in heaven and that she is watching over everyone and that she is no longer suffering anymore.

Bob, Danette, and Cornell Family, Jan was a great lady. I remember all the good times she shared with family. She was so proud of all of you and loved you dearly. May she rest in peace.
