Jan had a compassionate heart, which was a blessing to those she cared for at Odin Health Care Center while working there as a CNA for 32 years. She never met a stranger and was generous to all, seeing needs of others and meeting those needs by treating them as family. Jan was an amazing cook best known for her mouthwatering potato salad and baked beans. She enjoyed shopping and collecting treasures. Jan was a wonderfully beloved mother and grandmother who was the glue of her family’s bonds.
