    I enjoyed chatting with Jan through years of AAUW association. She was committed and dedicated to helping with the education and betterment of women and a delight to know. She was always willing to connect with our Cody branch through joint meetings and conventions, and she was a longstanding chair to keep the state group on track. Happy Trails, Jan. We will all miss you.
