Following her schooling, she worked at various jobs, but none were more important to her than being a mother and grandmother.

 

Jan enjoyed baking, cooking, gambling, and playing cards. She was also known for being a great seamstress. Most of all, she cherished the time spent with her family and attending all her grandchildren’s activities and sporting events.

She will lovingly be remembered by her eight children: Tori (Randy) May Smith, Rory (Sandy) Loucks, Tani Rodriguez, Janita (Tom) Hirschman, Jaryl Grauer, Jana (Kent) Pedersen, Jayla (Brett) Graybill, and Jalene Woods; daughter-in-law, Rosanne Loucks; 58 grandchildren and great-grandchildren; one sister, Ronetta; and several nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.
