Jan was born to Mary "Florence" Joyce and Erhard G. Sundeen. She spent her younger years in Spokane, Washington and Bonners Ferry, Idaho. She attended the University of Idaho and was the Idaho State swim team champion in 1950. Jan moved to California and married in 1964, settling in Foresthill where she worked managing the Public Utilities District office. She was a member of the American Legion and a longtime volunteer for numerous charities. Jan was preceded in death by her husband Ted Nelson. Hunting, fishing, birding, gardening and travels to the Baja Peninsula, Canada and Alaska were amongst her favorite pastimes she shared with him for 31 years. She is survived by her niece Sheryl Sundeen and great-niece Stacey Klyce of Tiburon, her step-grandson Theodore Nelson, Jr. of Kirkland, Washington, and her many cherished friends.
