Janice C. Bedient
March 10, 1955 – July 12, 2021
Janice C. Bedient, age 66, of York, Nebraska, went to her eternal rest on Monday, July 12, 2021, in York. She was born to Robert and Marilou (Wylie) Johnson in Kansas City, Missouri, on March 10, 1955. Jan graduated from Fremont Bergan High School in 1973. She was married to Ed Pullen and in this union, they had two children - Matt and Megan. She was joined in marriage to Bob Bedient on Aug. 19, 1989, and with his two children - Chris and Tony - the combined family became known as Bob, Jan and Tribe.
Jan was an active member of the York community, especially within St. Joseph Catholic Church, and as a long-time member of Does Drove #7 of which she was a past President. Like many, she had a love/hate relationship with golf. Of no doubt was how much she enjoyed spending time with family and friends, especially her grandchildren. Jan's other interests included a daily run/walk, growing zinnias, and most of all her job as a barber where she valued the many lifelong friendships she developed behind the chair.
Jan is survived by her husband, Bob of York; son, Matt Pullen, and grandsons, Cameron and Carson of Glendale, Arizona; daughter, Megan (Clint) Ohlson, and granddaughter, Addisyn Lanham of Aurora, Nebraska; stepson, Chris (Kama) Bedient of Lincoln, and their children, Kaiden, Blayke, Hannah, Paxton, Kolbe, and Wyatt of Lincoln; stepson, Rev. Tony Bedient of Lincoln; brother, John (Deb Peck) Johnson of Fort Collins, Colorado; sister, Jennifer (Rick) Toelle of Lemoyne, Nebraska; brothers-in-law, Jim Bedient and Rich Hauser; and sister-in-law, Pat (Tom) Robson; and many other family members.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Bob and Marilou Johnson; in-laws, Dick and Kappy Bedient; daughter-in-law, Jessica Bedient; and sister-in-law, Glenda Hauser.
