Jan married David Menge on December 28, 1963, in Bismarck. She was a dedicated wife, mother, and “mom” to many. She was a devoted homemaker and also would worked part-time at United Printing and then Image Printing. Jan also dedicated many years volunteering with the American Cancer Society and other organizations.  She loved serving others at House of Prayer and her true love was Jesus.

Jan enjoyed spending quality time with her family and friends. Whether it was playing cards, crafting, quilting, or camping she always was a go-getter and made those around her feel welcome and included.  She had a smile on her face and brought joy to those around her.
