A graduate of Chico State College, Jan taught for the Chico Unified School District for thirty years: eight at Bidwell Junior High; twelve at Fairview High; and ten at Chico High. She was an accomplished pianist and organist, playing at St. John's Episcopal Church, where she was a member, and singing in the church choir. She also sang regularly with the Chico State Opera Workshop and in the University Chorus. She was an active member of PEO Sisterhood, Chapter NS. She loved her cats and her many antiques.

Survivors include her sister, Dorothy Howard, and a nephew, a niece, and their families of John Day, OR, and Phoenix, AZ.
