Jan will be remembered as a caring wife, mother and grandmother. Throughout their marriage, Grant and Jan were surrounded by many friends and enjoyed a very busy and happy social life. Jan loved her home. It was always immaculate. Jan looked forward to Thursday lunches and all of the fun and laughter that she shared with her dear friend Ingrid Curtis. Jan loved to read, play bridge with Emmy Lou and accompany Grant on “The Boat”.
We would like to express a very special thank-you and sincere appreciation to the staff of St Patrick’s Mercy Home for months of kind and compassionate care. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Jan’s memory to the Community Food Sharing Association Inc, Quintessential Vocal Ensemble or a charity of your choice.
A funeral service will not be held until family members are able to travel home safely.
