Bobbie Janet (Jan) Torre, of Jackson, TN and lately of Versailles, KY passed away peacefully on April 20, 2021.

She was born on April 17, 1932 to the late Marvin and Ruby Opal Bridges. Jan traveled extensively during her time with Dad, getting to experience many different cultures including Costa Rica, Guatemala, El Salvador, Liberia, and Sri Lanka. She loved playing tennis, taking care of her family, and entertaining friends of whom there were many.

Jan was preceded in death by her husband, Pasqualino A. (Pat) Torre, her sister Betty, and her brothers Wayne and Joe. Their reunion must have been joyful beyond words. She is survived by her son Patrick, her daughter-in-law Dianne, her dog Ricky, and her greatest joy in her final years – her grandson Patrick.

She spent her last years in Versailles, KY with her son, daughter-in-law, and grandson, who will forever be grateful to have been given that time. However, Jackson was always home in her heart.

A viewing ceremony will be held on Monday, April 26, 2021 at 10 a.m. St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Jackson, with the funeral mass following at 11 a.m. The burial will follow at Highland Memorial Garden in Jackson.

The family asks for donations to the American Cancer Society in lieu of flowers.

My parents (Dale & KT Goldsmith) met Jan and Pat at language school in Costa Rica. They were wonderful friends and support to my folks. Soon after that, my sister was born in Mexico, and my parents named her Janet, in thanksgiving for the friendship.

When I was in high school, I was taking Spanish I, Aunt Janet and I would correspond often. Upon learning I was taking Spanish, she would send me many beautiful things from Guatemala for me to to share with my class. I don’t know who was happier about getting these things, me or my Spanish teacher. She was a very special lady.
