Janet Shipstad Hubbard passed away peacefully at her home on Thursday morning, June 27, 2019. She was born in California to Roy and June Shipstad. Her father Roy was known for his creation of the Shipstad & Johnsons Ice Follies. Jan was raised Catholic, and attended Sacred Heart Lower School and Menlo Atherton High School, both in Atherton, CA. Upon graduating from high school, Jan went directly into the work force. Jan was an outstanding sales representative at Saks Fifth Avenue in New Orleans. Later, she worked at Chico’s Clothing Store where she was quickly promoted into management. Jan’s zest for life, her caring nature for people, and wonderful sense of humor made her a top performer in sales and customer service. She also worked in the printing, communication & various retail industries. Jan met Casey in San Mateo, California in 1991, and they were married on February 13, 1993 in Carmel, California at a beautiful ceremony at the Pine Inn overlooking the Pacific Ocean. After the ceremony, Jan and Casey moved to Fresno, California. They spent over one year there, and then they were transferred to Kona, Hawaii in 1994, where they spent three years, and were then transferred to Maui in 1997. In 2000, Jan and Casey were transferred to New Orleans, Louisiana, where they have resided for 19 years. Jan and Casey lived in a beautiful home in Mandeville, Louisiana. Jan especially loved her home, and often used her talent in interior design to make it such a special place. She was beautiful inside and out with the most compassionate, empathetic soul that was filled with unconditional love. She loved to travel, and was very appreciative of the opportunities to do so. Jan is survived by her husband Casey, sisters Joy & Julie, brother-in-law Doug Hughs, niece Madison Lynch & nephews Chris & Justin Hughs. Jan has joined her parents and best friend Doug McDonnell in Heaven. She will be greatly missed. A private memorial will be held with close family and friends in California in August.
