She was a much loved wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother who will be missed by family and friends. Born in Ann Arbor, MI, Sept 24,1926, her early and young adult years were spent in Pittsburg, PA and Columbus, OH. While attending Brenau University in Georgia, she joined the ZTA sorority and remained a lifelong supporter. Returning to Columbus to attend The Ohio State University, she met future husband, Bill, on a blind date. They had almost 60 years of marriage before his death in 2007. She was a stay-at-home mother, raising daughters Dede and Kay. She was always involved whether as a room-mother, carpool driver, or softball coach. She was very active and supportive in her daughters lives; encouraging both girls to spread their wings but nearby if they might fall. Jan loved to play games, especially Bridge. She was an accomplished player and teacher of the game. Her outgoing personality made her unforgettable. She belonged to various Welcome Wagon and New Neighbors groups in Indiana and Michigan. While living in Waupaca, Wisconsin, Jan began ceramics- a love affair that flourished in the years of Florida retirement. She was innovative with her color choices and techniques earning several prizes and recognition for her work. Family and friends have many of her best pieces, Christmas Trees, Santas, and Snow Babies. She is survived by her daughter Deanna Lynn Green (Gary), granddaughters Elizabeth Lynn Green (Craig) and Andria Lee Moss (Ethan), and great-grandchildren Piper Lee Green and Jaxon Parker and William Cole Moss all living in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Younger daughter Katherine Lee Holt (William Dean) and grandsons William Dean II and Phillip Edward reside in Sylvania, Ohio.
