Jan worked as a nurse and in the health care profession for over 30 years. She retired from working the front desk of the Specialty Clinic at Lincoln Community Hospital. She was the ultimate caregiver; be it family, friend or patient. It was difficult for her to give up her role as caregiver and become care receiver. She will be greatly missed by all.
