Janice "Jan" was a true friend. She loved her family and was proud of each one.
Jan and Leonard were a very handsome couple.
When Jan became the high school cafeteria manager she was the "good old- fashioned cook". She took her job very serious. She made as many things from "scratch" as she could. She loved baking treats for the kids. Rules and regulations changed a lot of that in later years. She appreciated her co-workers.
The Fisher Family has a lot of great memories to reminisce about from now on.
Sympathy to all.

Hugs and prayers to the Fisher family during this time of loss. I remember Mrs. Fisher's sweet smile in the cafeteria line, and even while washing lunch trays. Rest in heaven, sweet lady.

Growing up in the 50s, the jeans my brother and I wore, were the hand-me-downs from Jan's (future) husband, Leonard, and his two brothers. Leonard and my mom (Elizabeth) were 1st cousins. I always saw Jan during the 4-H fair. Jan's passing is an end of an era.
Condolences and sympathies to the family and friends of Jan.
