Jan enjoyed camping with her family and countless family trips in their camper.

She also turned her talents at crocheting to make countless shawls for a prayer group: she also made afghans for family members and hats for new born babies at Metro Health Medical Center. Her passion for all her grandchildren could not be matched she attended as many functions as her health would allow and was a source of solace for each of them.
