Jan was a devoted member of St. Albans Episcopal Church in Windsor, CO and found joy singing in the choir and serving her community. She leaves behind many cherished friendships within the congregation.
Janice was called by many names – Janice, Jan, Yanice Yune, Mama, Little Lady, Gigi, Itty Bitty Pretty Lady, Old Woman, but most importantly, she was known as Friend. She loved fiercely and if you were lucky enough to be in her circle, you felt that immensely. May her compassionate spirit and enduring love be a source of comfort to all who knew her. I’m going to miss you Mama, but I will see you again. Give ‘em hell.
