I vividly recall Gus introducing me to his girlfriend, Jan, at a basketball game when he and I were both at Siena College. We graduated together. He went on to teach in high school and later joined me at Delhi College. He and Jan were a wonderful couple, great parents, faithful Catholics, and among the finest people I have ever known. Now that she has joined him, may they rest forever together in peace. Vince Ruggiero
Jan interviewed and recommended me for the positon I held at the Infirmary; she was always there to help me out when I needed it. Her kindness and care for the residents and her co-workers was apparent every day. She was such an intelligent, lovely lady. My condolences to the family.
Best wishes to your family. She was a wonderful person whom will be remembered well. Gloria (Lynam) Blaisdell
I worked at the Infirmary and had the pleasure of working with Jan there. She was always positive and encouraging, and very pleasant in every way. She was a strong testimony to her Catholic faith. Jan is among those I never forgot, a producer of good memories and an example for all. Tim Lutner, Delaware County Home and Infirmary, 1985-1993.
I worked with Jan at the Infirmary. Jan was a beautiful lady who I always looked up to. When I had issues with raising my two children and didn’t think I could get thru the ordeal, I always thought of Jan and would remind myself that if Jan could handle 9 children, I could handle my 2! Your parents were wonderful people and I am honored to have known them both. Patty VerNooy
Jan was a blessing to all who crossed her path. Her soul is pure and kind. She truly emulated the character of a saint, and the world was transformed into a kinder and more benevolent place because of her presence and the beauty of her essence, which lives on within her children and grandchildren. May she soar through the heavens knowing that she has touched so many lives.
Mi manchi gia',
First class lady, all around. A privilege to have been her neighbor and friend!
Love you always, Mom!
