Janet “Jan” Breen, age 72, went home to be with her Lord and Savior Saturday, October 23, 2021. She was preceded in death by her mother, Shirley Fishaw and her brothers Rick Fishaw and Michael Fishaw. She will be deeply missed by her husband of 40 years, Gregory Breen; children Christina Mason, Scott (Michelle) Brooks, Gregory (Kelsey) Breen Jr., Scott (Erin Pendell) Breen, Heather Breen; and numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, extended family, and friends.

Jan was a woman of many traits. She was beautiful, strong, and fierce - a true warrior. She battled cancer for 17 years of her life with grace and dignity. Jan was loving and devoted. She deeply cared for her family and helped shape who they came to be. She had an attention to detail like no other. Words cannot begin to describe or honor her legacy. She will be forever in our hearts.

A gathering to celebrate her life will be held from 12-3 p.m. Saturday, October 30, 2021 at Kubiak-Cook Funeral Home, 312 N. Main St., Wayland, MI 49348. In memory of Jan and in lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society. The family welcomes memories and messages in their guest book online at www.kubiakcookwayland.com.

I am so sorry for your loss. We only knew her from being across the road at Sandy Pines. She said she was a constant fusser, always picking sticks etc. from her yard, I said she was a hard worker. Jan and I would share Cancer stories, our chats would always end in prayers for strength to fight thru the demon cancer. She was a special lady and will be missed. Again I am sorry for your loss. Sincerely Madeleine Harris.

Sweet Aunt Janet,
When I see you in pictures I see such a strong,
resilient and beautiful woman. Such a light from within that is God given. Your presence would light up any room. The first words out of your mouth we’re always loving and kind and so sincere, it would always make me teary-eyed. I always felt the love around you even if it had been a long time since we had seen one another, for it was TRUE genuine love between family. The last time I seen you was at the last family get together (NY Bowling) and you were so happy your family was together. We sat and talked and I loved hearing what you had to say “I love and miss my family”. My heart hurts for Uncle Greg, Scott and Chrissy. I’ll try my best to help them and keep Connected as family should be. For now, I’ll sit and marvel at that beauty you inherited from your gorgeous mother. Rest peacefully beautiful lady! Give my daddy a hug and one of your sweet kisses from me. Love you always, Your niece Jennifer 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

MOM
to some MOM, mother Nan, Wife , sister and FREIND to many takes on all kinds of meanings.
But from your SON you are my super hero.
Tough as nail, tender and supportive amazing at all things I could only hope to be good at some day.
The hole that has been ripped in ALL of our universe will NEVER be filled .
We collectively can only begin this healing process uniting with one another . Casting aside any indifferences or views to allow to see the rainbow you have left for us to marvel.
As your SON I can only lead by example from all
Of the lessons the you and life have given me.
Your wisdom was vast and plentiful.
Your LOVE was endless and without resolve .
It seems as if this isn’t real or we all are
Going to wake up and see your smiling face .
Being able to comprehend that your hand was the first to hold when I came into this world and the last as you left this world has forever changed me.
Rest In Peace and in LOVE with all that have left before you and know that I will hold your hand again one day.
~ Love you always and forever
Your Son
Scott
