As a young woman, Jan was a swimming instructor and life guard and handed down her love of water to her children. Jan also worked as a librarian in Farmers Branch, Texas for many years where she passed on her passion for reading to all she touched.

Throughout her life, Jan was a beloved member of the community and could frequently be found volunteering for various charities and organizations. She enjoyed golfing, gardening, reading, playing cards and the friends she met along the way.
