    Jan was a good friend and neighbor. When we moved to this street, she hosted a welcoming party with the neighborhood women for me. We spent many hours together. She will be missed. Colleen

    My deepest respect for your loss. Jan was such a kind and considerate neighbor. I remember her and John from my earliest childhood. Always welcoming and always willing to stop and chat with me if they were out gardening or coming and going from whatever errand. From time to time they even gave me odd jobs to do for a few dollars and my choice of item from the “junk” drawer,which was very exciting as a kid! She was probably the first to run over and offer a casserole and condolences when my grandmother Sadie died. She came and helped guide my parents when my grandfather Lloyd passed at my parents home. She continued to keep up with our family news and would stop by to catch up with me when I visited my parents as an adult with my own children. I envy everything Jan and John represent as longtime neighbors and family friends and hope that I should be so lucky to find a couple similarly wonderful my neighborhood. I hope these words can bring a smile in such a time of sadness.

    I would like to give my deepest condolences to the family of Jan. I remember when we first moved in next door to John and Jan they came right over to introduce themselves and she brought us some zucchini bread. I never had zucchini bread before and it was the best thing i ever ate. Then Jan told us she want us to come over to her house and get to know each other, but to me it was to see if we were bad people. I think after our meet and greet we passed the test of being good neighbors so we all got along just fine. Jan had the perfect last name because she was a very Lovely person inside and out. She will truly be missed.

    I don’t recall a time while we lived across the street that Mrs. Lovely was waving, saying hello, and always with a smile. Our thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Lovely and the family during this difficult time.

    I watched the service. My dear friend, Jan was a caretaker. She was also my bridge buddy. I hope she saves me a place for me at her table in heaven.

    My heartfelt sympathy to all the family. My heart was broken to hear of Jan’s death. I worked with her for many years at Montclair Nursing & Rehab. She was such an inspiration to me. Her “lovely” smile and calm demeanor made it so easy to work with her. And her care giving carried over into her marriage with the care of her husband and family members. She is truly a saint in my mind. God certainly has another angel!!
