Jan enjoyed many activities and traveled abroad with her husband and family. She was very active in the community and was blessed with many talents which she shared freely with others throughout her life. Those who knew Jan were blessed by her kind and generous spirit, her wit, and her ever present charm. The last 31 years of her life, Jan continued to travel, but was happiest on her acreage outside of Union, Nebraska where she moved following the death of her husband, Paul, in 1986.

Jan was preceded in death by her husband, Paul and her son Bradley. She is survived by her son, David; 7 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. In her passing she leaves a large void in the lives of family and friends left behind. Moments with Jan passed too quickly but memories of her will last forever.
