Webster NY: 90, died peacefully in her sleep on Thursday, February 16, 2017 in Webster, New York. Born in Dayton, Ohio, and raised by Howard and Alma Carmichael in Bethesda, Maryland, she is survived by her brother, Thomas Carmichael, and his wife Helen, her beloved daughters Karen S. Sparka, Jenny J. Sparka and Peggy L. McLeish, and her husband Andrew, and grandchildren Jeffrey J. Moccia, his wife Lauren, Jennifer L. Moccia and her husband Sam.
Jan will always be remembered for her zest for life, her beautiful soul, her “Lucy” moments and her warm laughter. She was happiest spending time with her family and friends, traveling the world and enjoying music. A talented woman, devoted mother, adored grandmother and lover of animals, Jan was a ray of sunshine that made the world a better place. Her family is comforted by the knowledge that she is free and at peace as she is joyfully reunited with those loving family members who have also departed this life.
