The Air Force took dad to many amazing places and mom was by his side the entire time. She tells us stories of the cargo ship she had to take to get to Japan. They finally settled in Layton, Utah where mom worked at Sears until she retired. She loved the outdoors and being in her yard, roses, hummingbirds, and car rides in the mountains.
She loved to supervise any task I did. She loved to play bingo and spending time playing cards with her wonderful friends. Moms humor and fun personality left an impression on everyone she met. She had a wonderful smile that could brighten up a room and was loved by everyone.
Jan is survived by her daughters, Gina (Robert) Paul, Theresa Teeter, and Janice Woodruff; grandchildren, Thane (Alysha)Teeter, Whitney Teeter, Taylor Smith, Savannah Woodruff, and Ariel Woodruff; brother Jerry Smith; five grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; and many other wonderful family members.
She is preceded in death by her husband Eugene Woodruff; son Jesse Woodruff, her parents, her sister Eloda, and her brothers Tom and Kenny.
Mom you were an amazing person and the best mom we could ask for. Be free until we meet again.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
