    Just found out that Jan passed – so sorry to read this.

    I came in contact with Jan about a year and a half ago while applying for a position at Bourbon County.
    Later I was able to meet her husband and daughter at her house. She was always so kind and wonderful to talk with.

    So sorry to just learn about her passing!
