    I worked at Covenant for many years and was a Credit Union member(actually a frequent flier to take money out from my account!).  Jan was always so kind and welcoming whenever i stopped into the Credit Union...she always had a smile on her face and was always so enjoyable to talk with!  She was very helpful with my Credit Union membership and was a very professional businesswoman.

    Jan obviously made an impact on me(other then just my “money lady”!) and when i saw her obituary in the paper, I just wanted to send my condolences to your family and tell you that I felt very lucky to know your wife & mom. ❤️

    Sending my deepest sympathies for your loss....

    To Jill, Doug and family, our sincere condolences on your loss.  Jan was one of the nicest persons I had the pleasure of knowing.  I visited with her frequently at the Covenant Credit Union when I worked security there.  May God watch over you and your family at this time.
