JAN L POCHMANN

December 14, 1924February 11, 2017

Janice “Jan” Laine Pochmann passed away on February 11, 2016, in Garland at age 92. Jan identified herself as a homemaker, but that title reveals just a part of her full life. She had a loving family, a wide circle of friends, and a remarkable range of interests and accomplishments. Born Janice Marian Laine on December 14, 1924, in Chicago, Jan was the only child of Craig and Edy Laine. Jan attended school in Fort Worth and graduated from TCU in 1949 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. She remained a devoted TCU alum throughout her life. In 1945, Jan joined the Army and was assigned to the 75th WAC Hospital Company in Temple, Texas. She provided nursing care to soldiers wounded during World War II. At the same time Jan enlisted, her mother Edy joined the Army as well. This rare mother-daughter duo were formidable WACs. Jan married Henry Pochmann on August 27, 1950. Henry, a devoted husband and loving father, preceded her in death in 2002. Jan is survived by her daughter Linda Fullington of Fort Worth. She is also survived by her son, Laine Pochmann, his wife Debbie, and their son Tanner, who live in Dallas. A long-time resident of the Lockwood area in northeast Dallas, Jan enjoyed gardening and was an active garden club member. She loved spending time at the family cabin at Lake Tawakoni, tending her daylily and iris plants for more than 60 years. She looked forward to the yearly Fourth of July parade and picnic at their lakeside community. In the early ‘50s, Jan worked as a flight attendant for Braniff Airlines. She became a Braniff enthusiast and remained active in the Clipped B’s, an organization of former Braniff flight attendants. She and Henry were avid travelers. During their many campouts, they made close and lasting friendships with members of the Ramblin’ Sams, a Dallas-area RV organization. Henry was a long-time engineer for TXU, and Jan made many friends with the wives of professional engineers through the Auxiliary of the Texas Society of Professional Engineers. She was a life-long member of the Episcopal Church. Should you wish to honor Jan’s life, in lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the Boy Scouts of America, https://aplacetogive.scouting.org.
