She was involved with her sons’ activities: writing newspaper columns for the soccer club, being a room mother, volunteering in the school and public libraries, teaching Sunday School, and Vacation Bible School, helping teach computer classes, and driving children to sports practices and games. As the boys got older, they got more involved in tennis and Jan drove them to many tournaments around the region.
