Jana worked as a registered nurse for over 30 years. She touched countless lives throughout her career, but her most treasured role was being a mother. She never hesitated to offer help to anyone in need, whether that was a hot meal or a listening ear.

    Jana, you have left a huge whole in so very many hearts and the earth. You’ve also left a beautiful legacy with your loving and caring children who also make the world a much better place. You were a dedicated, caring and loving nurse who touched and help heal so very many bodies and provide the comfort so desperately needed. You were a quietly wonderful wife, mom, sister, niece, and friend. I’ve learned a lot about Grace and acceptance from you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being my niece and also a great friend. You are loved and missed by your husband children and their partners, brothers, other family, friends, patients, and co-workers. I love you Jana.

To say that she will be missed is not enough to ease your pain or make this any less difficult, I am sure. May God give you strength. I know she is finally resting without any pain or suffering. Much love to you and your family.
