She started her career in banking at Standard Federal, (Peoples Federal Savings and Loan) where she held positions as bank teller, and assistant manager/mortgage loan officer until she retired in 2000. Jan's love of life was visible in her beautiful gardens, the great dinners she prepared and spending time with her family.
