Celebrate a life well lived! Granny was a wonderful grandmother to Carleton and taught him to play a snappy game of poker! I have great memories of this smart lady! My best wishes to the family and know that she was very loved! Christina

Jan was a wonderful supportive mother in law and Carleton's terrific grandmother. He loved the times he spent with his grandmother, who of course taught him how to play poker. Thank you for all of your support.

While I didn't know Jan for very long, I was always happy to have her as my bridge partner with the women of Epiphany Church since she was focused, fun and a really good player! May she rest in peace and live in everlasting joy being reunited with her loved ones.
