She loved being a mom, wife, sister and daughter. Jan loved watching Cameron play sports starting in kindergarten and on into college.

Jan became a Realtor for the Charles Reinhart Company in 1998 and found homes for many local families. Scott joined Jan in the business in 2012 when her illnesses kept her compromised. Jan loved Cavanaugh Lake and her special spot on the deck, where she was known to have a special Vodka Martini with blue cheese stuffed olives.  Jan was a fighter beginning with her first cancer battle in 2011. Her team of special Angels kept her going with their love and friendship over the last few years.
