Janice Carolyn Ford, lovingly known as “Jan” to many, entered into eternal life on July 9, 2019 at the age of 78. A native of San Antonio, she was born to Urbone Atkinson and Lucille Dorow on April 28, 1941. Jan retired from civil service and will be remembered for her love of traveling and extraordinary talent at planning family trips. She had a special place in her heart for all animals and would take in just about every stray she crossed paths with. She took pride in having a green thumb and enjoyed scrapbooking photos. She was a volunteer for many years at the Zoo and for the Mission San Juan; but her fondest memories were spent with her family, whom she adored. Jan was preceded in death by her mother, Lucy Scaramozi and step-father, Jimmy Scaramozi. She leaves behind to cherish her memories her husband of over 59 years, Billy Ford; daughters: Carolyn White and husband Andy, Jeanette Williamson and husband Johnny, Molly O’Regan and husband Ian; grandchildren: Jeremy White and wife Brittany, Emily White, Natalie White, Joshua White, Zachary Williamson, Alex Williamson and husband Ben Wells, Zoe Williamson, Evan O’Regan, Mackenna O’Regan; and great-granddaughters, Lucy Williamson and Ella Wells.

Jan was one of my best friends. Even though I lived in Florida and she lived in Texas, we always kept in touch. One of my fondest memories was trips we took together. I went to San Antonio and visited her. She and I took a trip to Las Vegas and I still have letter she wrote about our trip. It is hilarious, which was typical of Jan. She and Billy came to visit us and I went on a Camping Trip with her family. My last conversation, with my dear friend was when she and Billy were in the Assisted Living Facility. She was the usual jovial Jan but I could tell she didn't know who I was. This broke my heart as I knew we would not be able to have our usual chats. I speak of her often and will never forget my dear friend. My condolences to the three girls and their families.

Our family is sad to her of Jan's passing. We have so many memories of her and our Cravens Street families. She was a wonderful babysitter and such a fun lady. She will be missed.❤
