Anyone who knew Jan knows of her love of the natural world. she loved gardening and spending time outdoors and always made time to “stop and smell the flowers”. Jan has always been a natural teacher throughout her life: to her children, to her friends and colleagues and to her grandchildren and other children that crossed her path.

With her children grown, Jan began a careet in counselling earning a masters degree in Social Work from the University of Victoria and providing counselling services throughout the East kootenays until she retired in 2003.

Since retirement Jan has led an active life spending the summers in the East Kootenays and travelling with Russ in the winters. She was incredibly grateful to spend the past winter in Australia with Russ and her daughter Jenifer.

Jan was active in the Yoga community. Her spirituality was honouring the divine light within herself and others. This is what shone through.
