Jan was full of life.
Independent, strong, courageous, loving & caring. She showed in her own unique way by passing down the teachings she learned and being stern and giving to anyone and everyone she could.
She was passionate about sobriety and giving back where she could help anyone achieve sobriety and always maintained supportive of her family and friends working towards or already accomplished having sobriety. As she too lived a long life full of sobriety for several years.
She worked in many positions for Tulalip tribes, one being an intake transporter for family services bringing those in need to treatment centers. Also, for Muckleshoot tribe along with being a committee member for the health and elders committee for several years.
She enjoyed travelling as often as she could to visit family, to church, or just to simply enjoy the scenery. Janice occasionally went to the casino. She was always doing something.
She enjoyed the scenery out by the rivers where she would go walking along the paths or on the rocks to collect eagle feathers.
Even more so enjoyed shopping…shopping for not only herself but her kids, grand Kid’s, great grandkid’s and anyone and everyone else. Especially her dream puppy she has yet to meet.
She enjoyed finding garage sales, thrift stores, casino gift shops and any store to be able to find clothes, nick-nacks or things for a house. She was always looking for a way to give back to her family and friends and what better way to do that than give gifts. She was always so happy to give things to her family and friends in priest rapids an around here and not once she never expected anything in return she always gave with the love and kindness of her heart and to just help someone in the way she knew how.
A lot of the time she also donated clothes to the homeless.
She always made sure she had a gift for everyone.
She strongly encouraged traditional values- Speaking, praying, and singing.
Most of all she encouraged very sternly …. Discipline and accountability with that is how she showed her love and teachings.
