Bill’s work and travel schedule took the family to many cities (Waterloo, Iowa; Bartlesville, OK; Omaha, NE; Sioux Falls, SD and Spencer, IA) where Jan took excellent care of the family. Jan worked at the Clothes Peddler for years in Spencer, which helped pay for her love of clothing! She volunteered for F.I.S.H delivering meals to the elderly, was a Girl Scout Leader and she volunteered at church.

Jan hobbies included playing bridge with friends, Friday night couples golf and ladies league bowling. She was part of the Iowa Questers in Spencer where she loved to share her interest in the history of antiques and antique shopping. Jan took great pride in her gorgeous flower beds and vast gardens in her backyard where she spent many summer hours.
