I wish to extend my heartfelt sympathy to all of the family. I can't say enough nice things about Jan. She was/is an angel amongst us. I feel truly blessed & honored to have counted her as my friend. I will miss her dearly. Phx, AZ Lydia D. Talbot, May 31, 2008 My thoughts and prayer are with the family. Jan was such a sweet special person. One of the ways Jan showed her love to people was by sending cards. I still have most, if not all, of the cards she sent me. I know that she will be missed by many. Angela Haley, May 31, 2008 I am so very sorry to hear about Jan. She was a delight. I did get a chance to talk to her a few weeks ago and she was so excited about her new grandchild. I considered her a friend, not just the parent of one. She will be missed by me, her family, her friends and an entire community. You are all in my prayers and if there is anything I can do, please, don't hesitate to call. My deepest sympathy, Angelique Angelique Strittmatter, May 30, 2008 Heidie, Julie, Mandy and the rest of Jan's family, I can't imagine the emptiness you must feel now. I know, though, that she is free of any pain and suffering. She absolutely loved her family. She spoke of you in some form or fashion every time I saw her or talked to her on the phone. The fire station will never be the same without her. I'm sure Granny is showing her around and has her playing 42 by now. May you be filled with memories until you meet again. I will keep each of you in my prayers. Much Love to you all!! Jenny Borchardt-Murray, May 30, 2008 I am so sorry for your loss. Jan was a great person and we love all of you very much. You will be in our prayers and may God be with you during this difficult time. Remember, She will always be with you in your heart and watching over you in spirit! God Bless!

Nan S, Parker, May 30, 2008 Heidi, Julie, Mandy and the rest of the family. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you as you go through this difficult time. Jan was so very proud of all her girls and her grandbabies-both beautiful children who she never missed a chance to show off. I am so glad she was in my life for the time she was (since 1955) and I will always cherish our birthday dinners and conversations from our many years of knowing each other. God knows what's best for us and sometimes that's the only comfort we can find. Take care of each other. God bless all of you.

I hope each day brings some peace knowing that Jan is in a better place. My heart aches for you all. Be strong for each other and remember the good times. Love to all Susan Susan Jouett, May 29, 2008 Jan's Family...Although I might know you personally I know you in my heart. Jan always spoke of her family with such devotion. She loved to go on and on about her girls and grandbabies. With this loss I am reminded of what Paul said to the Romans about faith. Romans 5:1-2 says Therfore, since we have been declared righteous by faith, we have peace with our God through Jesus Christ. Also through him, we have obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. For the family of Jan I pray..Lord, you conquered death by dying and rising to new life and for that, new life is given to all souls so that they may be happy forever. Amen. Jan sits as a co heir with Jesus Christ in the kingdom of God. Jan we love you. Nathan Naylor, May 29, 2008 Dear girls of Jan, When I think of Jan, I truly only have sweet memories!

I am sure Lynde will be in touch somehow.She wishes she could be here for you. Donna Donna Noland, May 29, 2008 Heidi,Julie and Mandy- I am so sorry to hear about your mom, she was a wonderful mother to you girls and a wonderful friend to so many people, she will be truly missed.
