Let the memory of Jan be with us forever
  • 77 years old
  • Born on December 24, 1934 in Fairfield, Idaho, United States.
  • Passed away on January 7, 2012 in Tacoma, Washington, United States.

This memorial website was created in the memory of our dear wife, mother, grandmother, sister & friend, Jan Bryant, 77, born on December 24, 1934 and passed away on January 7, 2012. We will remember her forever.

Her memorial service on Saturday, 1/21/12 was beautiful, officiated by Pastor Larry Redelsperger.  The family would like to thank relatives and friends for attending, and to extend thanks to all those who couldn't attend, for we know that all will continue to remember her fondly, and that she/we have been in your thoughts and prayers.  Your support during this trying time has touched us deeply.  Photos of the Memorial Service Program (cover/inside) can be found here in the Photo Gallery.

Please note, even though the Memorial Program alludes to a place on their website constructed for her at the Mountain View Funeral Home (www.mountainviewtacoma.com), this "Forever Missed" site was the website established before the service that will remain in place for her, permanently.

Wow, another year, Mom. How is that possible? A friend told me she lost her mom 11 yrs ago today. Love you & miss having you here. Help me to do better with knowing and understanding that you are around. (This was written on the 7th, not 8th...this software must be geared toward Eastern Time Zone)

you left us at 77 on the 7th...perhaps there's a numerological significance there...a very special lady...you're in my heart daily, and I know you are still there...love you, mom

Dear Jan:

In all of the time I knew you, I never knew you were an (almost) Christmas baby. Well, it is 12:00 midnight, so it's official: 
Happy Birthday, Jan! We miss you.
Love, Deidre

I've known you all my life. You took care of me when I was a baby. You loved & were friends with my Mom & Dad. You are my Godmother. Love you always Ken

Jan, I enjoyed going to the casino with you and spending time at your home. You always made me feel welcome, Jan, your such a loving, caring person & it was my honor to know you. But I will certainly miss the candy you always made sure Larry brought me in Tahsis. Scotty

Janice, the time we knew you was much too brief; However, the trips to the casinos were cherished. It was a great loss to all who knew you and your loss was felt by all. You will always be in our thoughts and in our hearts.   Vaya con Dios !

i never met you but i have to tell you, Jan, that i know very well your nephew Marcello and your daughter Sheri.
I think it's enough to know as well such a great woman you are.
Our prayers will be with you.
Love. Cirillo Family.

Dear Jan, I miss you already. Thanks for being Cameron and my guardian angel while you were here with us, and please continue to be our angel now that you are in heaven. Look out for our boy, and give him a little push if he should stray. You and Larry have been so wonderful to us. We'll watch over Larry, just like you watched over us. We love you. Deidre & Cameron Enoch

Aunt Jan was such a warm and considerate person, yet up for fun and mischief too. I have fond memories of her through the years. Most recently when we were in Tahsis a few years ago. She was very generous with us and about sharing herself. We hurt that the last few years were such a struggle for her and all of you. You have our deepest condolences and love.

Janice & Larry stood up with us when we were married 54 years ago and came here to stand up with us again at 50 years. She will be missed very much. We send our love and prayers to the whole family.
Posted by Anna Munoz on January 13, 2012
Janice, thank you for being here for me when I needed a friend more than anything else. I knew you for 50 wonderful years, and will love you and miss you always. All the puzzles we built together were so much fun. I'll build the last puzzle you gave me in your memory.

Your dear friend, Anna

Janice, you will always be missed by all of the lives you've touched. Friends come and go but true friends come into your life and they stay and that's what you've always done. You came into our lives and you stayed and will always be with us in our hearts.

With much love, The Munoz Family

Dear Jan, I know your journey is a blessed one! I will cherish your goodness and strong empowered spirit with Sheri's ever present laugh and Marcello's simple expression of life well lived through his music that you so inspired in some quiet way. You are and will forever be beloved!
Posted by Karen Miller on January 11, 2012
Dear Sheri, your mother's life is surely an inspiration to you. It appears that she was a remarkable woman who will be missed.
Posted by Sue Honaker on January 11, 2012
Dear Mrs. Bryant,

You are a like a second mother to me. Do you remember the time when you and Sheri hosted a tupperware party and I made you laugh about the lettuce core-er? Hope to have many laughs again. I still remember the Easter Bunny cake!

It was such a pleasure to know you and spend time with you, Jan. We're so sorry that the last few years have been so hard. Your beautiful family is a great credit to the wife, mother and grandmother that you are. I know you will be greatly missed . . . our thoughts and prayers are with all of you, now and always. Much love from the Gargiulo Family.
Posted by Sheri Liguori on January 11, 2012
We love you, mom...you are and will be always greatly missed, and we pray our thoughts of you touch you where you are...
