Jan was my cousin on my Mother's side (Mary Sue Haynes). Jan never thought twice about taking care of our Grandmother Haynes for many years. She gave of herself freely to everyone. Every time I saw her, she always had a bright smile on her face. Jan will always be respected by all for her unselfish giving spirit.

I have so many memories of our sweet Jan. We started at Creekview together 20yrs ago. Everyday she would do something to make us laugh and love her.
She didn’t mind putting me in my place😊.
She was firm on her beliefs , stubborn and very caring.
She would come to my girls school events when they were younger. Gave Birthday gifts, Holiday gifts and loved my girls with all her heart. Always asking about how they were doing throughout the years.
She always gave me advice on flowers! What kind and how to care for them. She taught me how to grow flowers from stems of roses, hydrangeas, herbs and many more. She gave me lots of plants from her own yard
I will truly miss my little friend , my coworker, my plat whisperer , my sweet Jan, my sister in Christ.
Forever in my heart ❤️

Jan was one of the kindest & most humble people. She was very sweet to all the children she helped feed everyday at Creek View Elementary. She truly had a servants heart. I remember years ago I was watching my students empty their trays, & she said let me wash out your salad bowl. She was just so sweet! I’ve attached a photo I took a few months ago of Laura & Joyce (&Jan) that worked with Jan. She will be missed so much by the CNP ladies, teachers, & students. I’m thankful she knew Jesus as her Savior-she’s rejoicing & is no longer in pain from cancer. May God provide strength for her family & friends in the days ahead.
