At a very young age, her family moved to Milwaukie, Oregon where she attended school and graduated in 1955. While in high school, she competed in roller skating competitions at Oaks Park. After graduating high school, she met the love of her life, Thomas D. Pomante and they married July 7, 1956. They had 3 children: Kimberly, Jeffrey, and Angela. They raised their family in a home that they built themselves in Corbett, Oregon. Jan had numerous jobs that she loved throughout her life, but her most passionate role was being a wife and mother. She loved camping, family vacations and her furry companions. As long as she was with family, she was happy. Janice is preceded in death by her husband Tom, daughter Kim and granddaughter Krystal.
