    Dear Lindsay and Eric, I tried reaching your mom numerous times and left messages for her. I knew that she had been ill but when she never called back I figured she was fine and back to working, as she did so often. Today Sunday, July 9, 2022,I happened to see Myra and I asked how your mom was doing and the shock I received from her, still has me in a state of shock. My heart is full of sadness to your head the news. You mom was the most fabulous individual I have ever known. Your mom and I go back many many years, with working at North Shore Childrens to my last job at The former hospital on the hill. She was kind, understanding and loving. She loved you both so much and of course, Her dear grandchildren. Jan was a perfect daughter, sister and mom to you. Please know she will always be in my heart. May she Rest In Peace...she deserves that. If either one of you want to contact me at any time, please let Myra know. She has all my information. Paula Dollin

    I am so sorry to hear of Jan's passing. I had the pleasure of working with her when I was manager of the Danvers Polish Club. Such a kind and wonderful woman. You will be missed! God Bless you and your family. Laura Wolf
