Jan was born in Libertyville, IL in 1938 to Harold and Marie Tennyson. She graduated from Libertyville High School and attended the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana where she met her husband and love of her life Jim.
Jan and Jim were married in 1958 and raised their children in Lake Bluff, IL. Jan was a successful travel agent and enjoyed volunteering for many worthy organizations. Jan and her family loved to camp in northern Wisconsin and travel to the Caribbean for sunny, tropical vacations. After raising their family in Lake Bluff, Jan and Jim lived in Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Indianapolis before retiring to Sun City, Arizona. After Jim’s passing, Jan moved to Philadelphia to be closer to her kids and grandchildren living on the East Coast.
