Jan adored her grandchildren Dylan Riesenbeck, Dalton Flak, Kendra Bible, Dawson & Sophia Flak, but would often get tripped up on whom she was speaking to since her children named all the males with “D” names. Jan dearly loved her brothers and sister-in-laws- Danny Coffman(Carolyn), Timmy Coffman (Ann), Kyle Coffman (Jan), Billy Coffman (Cathy) and Jay Coffman (Jodie). Jan had several nieces and nephews whom she treasured. Jan was blessed with the friendship of Shirley Sparks since she was 8 years old and referred to her as “sister friend”. Jan was always a giver. Although, she was not wealthy Jan got great joy in helping others and making them feel loved. Jan was the kindest most loving person and would give the last thing she had to a person in need. Jan had a way of making you feel special and you could feel the love that shown in her eyes. Jan was truly “Jesus in the skin” to those she helped and loved.
