I will always remember Jan’s beautiful smile and outgoing personality. It was always a joy to share time together at our Zeta get togethers and to hear about her latest travels with her special “sisters.” She will be missed by everyone who knew her. May God comfort Jan’s friends and family .

Tom, Charles, and family. I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I had the pleasure of meeting Janice recently when she came into my place of employment at Deaconess Home Medical Equipment. I really enjoyed talking with her and having the opportunity to serve her. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this very difficult time.
