Book of Condolences

Thea and Duff RothbauerJan will be sadly missed. She was one of first Cherryhill friends. Our sincere condolences to her family.
Paulette RothbauerJan generously helped out on a research project that I am doing, and I still recall the pleasure of sitting with her one afternoon, as her cats climbed all over my lap, as I visited with her. She spoke with pride and love of her family -- my sincere condolences to all of you.
Wendy GillI am so sorry to hear of Jan’s death. She will be missed by a lot of friends and family. Jan and I were friends of Avon people. I will surely miss her. I’m so glad I seen her in October at a Christmas show. My condolences to the family. My prayers are with you in this time of need.
Morghanna MacIsaacThis dear lady will always remain in my heart and mind as the very embodiment of a true earth angel. Her capacity for love was limitless, her humour - healing, her kindness and generosity withheld from no one. I loved her as a sister, and I shall miss our mutual cat-lady phone conversations where we'd trade stories and share information respecting our beloved pets. I have never known anyone with greater love for family than that which Jan constantly displayed. She never tired of sharing anecdotes and scenarios respecting her grandchildren, and I felt privileged to be a part of that love ... even if only by proxy. My deepest and most sincere condolences to her beautiful family in their great loss.
