Jan, a remarkable mother, daughter, sister and friend whose heart of gold illuminated the lives of everyone she touched. Jan's unwavering selflessness made her not only a wonderful friend but the most genuine and caring soul one could ever meet. She found pure joy in the outdoors, cherished her lazy afternoons with her much-loved naps, and above all loved spending time with her family and son. Having Nathaniel in her life was the greatest gift, adding immeasurable joy and love to her world. Jan's legacy of kindness and warmth will forever resonate in our hearts. May she find eternal peace surrounded by the love she so freely gave.
