She graduated from Tech High School in 1972 and went on to attend St. Cloud Vocational College.

Jan was always trying the latest recipe from America's Test Kitchen, trying out new gardening techniques, scrap booking or shopping with her sisters, and looked forward to the annual trips to Lake Vermillion. Jan was active in her community. She danced in the Way Off Broadway Review fund-raiser from 1990-1992 and volunteered for the local Girl Scouts for over 10 years.

Jan will be deeply missed by her husband, Robert Jr., Foley; son; Todd (Jessica), Big Lake; and daughter; Shannon (Derek) Brambrink, Foley; grandchildren, Emilie Kirchoff, Dominic Brambrink and Dylan Brambrink, mother, Theresa Heinen, St. Cloud, mother-in-law, Elsie Kirchoff, Foley and sisters and brother, Carol Krippner, St. Cloud; Elizabeth 'Betty' (Mike) Jaeger, St. Cloud; Viola (Thomas) Theisen, Waite Park and Joe of St. Cloud.

Jan was preceded in death by her father, Benedict, father-in-law, Robert Kirchoff Sr., and brothers, Richard and Kenneth.
