She loved and was loved by her life long friends Laurel, Dale and Carol, dear friends Jodi (Tom), Lynn (Pat),  aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces, in-laws, and  her many other friends. All of their well being was very dear to Jan.

Jan graduated from Bryant and Stratton College. She enjoyed a career in corporate travel, as an agent and an account manager.

    I will miss my very dear friend, Jan, of 55 years so very much. She was always a shining star, so warm and full of life. It was great that she rekindled her love of art and developed into such a fine artist again the last several years of her life. Steve and I give you our deep sympathy at your loss, Harry, Aaron, and Evan. Her love of life, her family and friends, was deep and true. She will be in my heart forever.

    I cannot express how heartbroken I am. Jan had been working at my store for a couple of years and her artwork hangs in my window. My customers thought the world of her as well. She became a good friend and I will miss her terribly.

    To Harry and Family,
    I just heard of Jan’s passing today from two former Rosenbluth International employees. She was a key member of our team and in addition was so creative and helpful to everyone.
    Her artistic talent was admired by all.
    Please accept my condolences and may she Rest In Peace.
