After Gary and I finished building our new home in Arriola Jan came out to the house and helped me decided what kind of drapes to put up. She then measured and cut all the drapes and I sewed them. She was so kind to help me do this, after hours. What a grand lady she was. She will be missed by many.

My mom worked with Jan and Clyde at Jan's Fabrics. I remember seeing both of them in there as a young child. They were always smiling! That's how I will remember you Jan, for your loving smile. I am so grateful that you were such a good friend and PEO sister to my mom.
