Jan Garrity lost her battle with cancer on February 14,1990.
She was hospitalized months prior and she called me begging
to not let her die in the hospital. I called the hospital
to talk to her but she had been released earlier that day.
She told her husband Tom Garrity that she would live until
Valentines Day.(February 14,1990)
On February 13,1990 at midnight or almost midnight her husband kissed her goodnight and he went upstairs to bed..
About 10 minutes after he went upstairs to bed, he decided
to check on Jan one last time...By the time he came back
downstairs the second time..Jan had passed away..
Jan died on Valentines Day, just like she said..
I visited with Jan around Christmas time (1989)and she
just laid on her couch with her face buried in a pillow..
We talked for the longest time.Little did I know at the time, that it would be the last time I ever spoke or saw
her again.
Jan was like a second mother to me. I've known her since
I was just a little girl of about 11. I would give anything
to see and talk to her again. She is dearly loved and sadly
missed..
Jan is survived by her husband Tom Garrity and her parents
Irwin and Jane Stroup Myer of Newport,New Jersey.
