Age 75 of Pittsburgh, passed away peacefully with family at her side on Monday, April 24, 2023. Beloved daughter of the late Ervin A. and Lucille J.

Born December 27, 1947 in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Jan earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from the University of Michigan in 1971. She then embarked on a successful nursing career in the Veteran’s Administrator, rising to the level of Chief Nursing Administrator for the VA facility in Battle Creek, Michigan.
Deciding to switch careers, Jan obtained her law degree from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh and joined the Allegheny County Law Department, serving as Assistant County Solicitor. As a trial lawyer, Jan represented the County on many cases involving abused and neglected children in the Pittsburgh area.
Jan’s talents knew no bounds. She was an expert quilter who often donated her work to those in need. She achieved Master Gardener status and volunteered extensively for the Penn State Extension Service, manning a garden hotline and developing an urban community garden.
