Born July 1, 1950, in Plymouth, WI and raised in Whitefish Bay, Jan is a 1968 graduated Whitefish Bay High School and attended UW Milwaukee. Jan loved people, especially kids. Her degrees from UW Madison and Penn State were in early childhood development. She was hired by IBM in 1976 and later transferred to the Green Bay office, where she met and later married her husband, Tom in 1978. Tom was first attracted to her by her sense of humor, which she maintained throughout her life. After their marriage, the couple spent the next 45 years traveling the world together. Traveling was Jan’s true passion. Her favorite trip was always the next one she had planned.  Jan loved music played as loud as Tom could stand. She had an eye for decorating and could turn any house into a beautifully designed home. She also loved her convertible. The neighborhood always knew when Jan got home in the summer. She loved dogs, especially her own, Killer and Duchess 

.Jan is survived by her husband, Tom; her brother, Kevin (Cindy) Mathews, Shorewood, WI; many, many nieces and nephews, and many, many friends.
