Jan was a faithful Christian who loved the Lord, her family, and friends and had a smile and laugh that brought joy to those around her.

She was a devoted member of Oakwood Memorial Baptist Church, where she served as Deacon, taught Sunday School, and served her Lord in many other ways. Jan was especially thankful for the care and kindness always provided to her by the MCV/VCU medical staff.

I was so saddened to her about Jan’s passing. I knew her my entire life, having grown up at Oakwood. She was so kind, sweet and loved the Lord—it was very evident in all she said and did. My prayers are with her family during this difficult time—love to you all!

I have known Jan most of my life and I will always remember her for her deep faith, her strength, her kindness, her sense of humor, and her love for family and friends. Jan was certainly a beautiful person. This Earth has lost another great Christian. I will miss her, but know we will all be reunited one day in Heaven.
