Jan is lovingly remembered by her husband of 37 years Brian, her daughter Brenda (Matt), grandchildren Brandon and Katelyn, sister Barbara (Dave), brother Kevin (Nancy), stepfather Peter and many other relatives and friends. She will also be sadly missed by her good friend Shenny and many of her adopted family at Canadian Tire in Kamloops.
