Janice was born September 22, 1951 in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Forever the nomad spirit, Jan has lived in Michigan, North Carolina, Arkansas, and Indiana all for sake of family, as spending time with her grandchildren was paramount to her love of family. Jan loved the holidays, especially Christmas. She was a Disney fanatic, Mickey Mouse being her absolute favorite. Reading was Jan's other passion and past time.
Jan is survived by: daughter Nanette Case; four grandchildren Rhene Geldner, Cassandra Warn, Chelsea Halstead, and Jacob Newberry; three great grandchildren Janie Geldner, Lee Geldner, and Grant Geldner; two brothers Gary VanOrman and Allan VanOrman; and several nieces and nephews.
