Haugen, sister-in law Audrey, sister Vicki Haugen Knight, brother-in-law, Jerry, her grandson, Ben Garlie, granddaughter-in-law, Heather, great-granddaughter, Bailey Wren, sister-in-law Judy Haugen, nephew and nieces.

The greatest joy was when Bailey Wren Garlie was born and she became a very proud and happy great-grandmother. Jan was looking forward to a trip to North Dakota for Bailey’s birthday and to see old friends when she passed away.
