Private family services


Jan was such an amazing woman. She loved her family dearly and would do anything for them. However, her family was not just blood. She loved and cared for the skaters like her own. She would always give concise advice and was willing to stand up for what she believed in and supported the skaters through and through. She will be missed dearly.

Our deepest condolences to you and your family during this time. Please know that you are in our thoughts and our hearts!

Renee - I am so heartbroken for you. I am so sorry for your loss my friend. There aren't enough words I can say to help your pain. Just know that I'm a shoulder to lean on and a friend to talk with if you need one.

Lauren - I'm so thankful that you were able to enjoy so much time with your Gramma! A Gramma's love is like no other, and I'm very sorry for your loss.

Gary - Take care of your girls, they are going to need you....

So many memories, junior high and high school. We always had so much fun without really doing anything! Lauren and Renee, she loved you more than life itself. I've seen about as many pictures of Lauren as I have my own grandkids. Lauren, you are so very lucky to have spent so much time with Grandma, the long talks you must have had driving back and forth to skating. If you ever just want to sit and talk about your Grandma from the "old" days just give me a call and we'll get together.
Love and hugs

Renee and Lauren,
I really don’t know what to say. I know how close you were with your mom and grandma.
She loved your both so much! I’m so sorry this has happened. Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers.
Love Heather

Renee and Lauren, our heart breaks for you because we spent years at the ice arena witnessing firsthand the love and devotion she had for the two of you. Lauren, she watched you skate with immeasurable pride! We will always appreciate her kindness and support of Emma's skating over those years, as well. We also enjoyed her candor! :) Her dedication to figure skating will never be forgotten! Jan/Grandma was a one-of-a-kind that will forever be part of our memories at ANIA! <3

She will be missed! I have fond memories of watching the kids skate alongside Grandma.

She held Lauren in the highest regard (and would do anything for her) and should be commended for her devoted love to family.

My sincerest sympathy to the family and specifically to your loss Lauren!

Renea so sorry for your loss

Renee,Lauren and Gary;
So sorry to hear of Jan's passing. I know her family was her life. Thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time.

Sincere sympathy to the family...I enjoyed working with Jan and extremely proud to have her as my friend. She will be sadly missed by her family and friends.

Renee, I am so sorry to hear of this... I know how you were her everything... I have all good memories of our past days playing Bingo... Please know you are in my Prayers as is Lauren....

Our condolences on your loss.

I was looking through old papers and just saw this very sad news. I used to live by your parents at Shelmar. They were the best neighbors you could have. I am so sorry for your loss. I look forward to the day that Rev. 21:4 speaks of when God will wipe out every tear from ours eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.

So sorry to hear about Jan's passing, the family has my deepest sympathy!
