I am so sorry for the loss of "mom" she was very influential in my life growing up. The peace in her heart now, looking at those who love her will guide all those still here in the flesh. Penny Browne

Jan was such a beautiful person. Her radiance would glow a mile away. She had a smile that would light up a room. Meeting her for the first time you knew that she had a huge heart and was full of love. She was such an amazing wife, mother, and grandmother. Everyone in this family feels so blessed to have had such an amazing woman in their lives. So many people spoke and will forever speak of her wonderful spirit. As we all mourn over the loss of this beautiful woman, we all find comfort in knowing she is free from her illness, as she dances in heaven while finally reuniting with her children. Now our beautiful Jan is a beautiful angel who will watch over her loving family forever. Rest in Peace Janette Alder
