Janet “Jan” Lynn (Price) Blimling, age 67, died peacefully in her room at the Josie Harper Hospice House in Omaha, NE on the 26th of June, 2019. Since her birth on March 7, 1952, Jan nourished the people around her with love, faith, and a love of husker sports. Jan was born in Omaha, NE and was the only child of Howard and Bernadette Price. Jan graduated from Ryan High School in Omaha in 1970, and continued her education at University of Nebraska Lincoln where she received her Bacherlor of Science in Education in 1974 and a Master of Arts degree in 1985. Jan lived in a handful of places throughout her life, but ultimately made Omaha her home. Jan worked as a teacher, an education and training coordinator, and a grocery store associate before starting her career as a Group Sales Coordinator for Marriott International, a company she would retire from in May of 2019. Jan was an active member in her church, Presbyterian Church of the Master, where she was part of the Woman’s Circle, a member of the Session, and an Elder. Jan was also active in ESA, a service sorority where she held several offices including chapter and state president. Jan was a very giving, loving, and caring person and it gave her great joy to help others. Most of all, Jan loved her family. Left to honor and remember her love are her two sons Brett and Justin, three grandchildren Ashley, Bryson, and Tyler, several nieces and nephews, and many many friends whose lives she touched during her journey through life. Jan was a wonderful and loving mother, daughter, grandmother, wife, aunt, teacher, and friend. She will forever be a bright and shining light for all her family, friends, and for the numerous people whose lives she came into contact with.
So many words over so many years. I’m left with three: Thank you, Janet. I miss my friend. Turk
