Jan was a very hard working and giving person. She always strived to do her best no matter what task she was assigned and was always friendly with everyone she came in contact with. She was always eager to meet new people and establish new friends. She talked about her family many times and shared fond memories of family when she was young, would be nice if everyone today was kind and caring as she was, she will be missed.
