Let the memory of Jan be with us forever

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 (, this "Forever Missed" site was the website established before the service that will remain in place for her, permanently.

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!"
