Once in Charlotte, Jan served as a leader for Charlotte Newcomers Club and met many lifelong friends. She also volunteered for Food Pantry Loaves and Fishes in Charlotte for a number of years. Jan was a very active member of St. Matthew Catholic Church.

Jan’s hobbies and interests included playing mahjong, playing euchre, attending water exercise classes, eating lunch and dinner with her many good friends, spending time with her grandchildren, and attending sporting events.
