  1. We are so saddened by Jan’s death. We are one of the couples in the monthly Dinner Group Jan was involved with. We had many good times with Jan and enjoyed her company very much. She was funny and always had cute comments to share about her children and grandchildren. We know you will miss her greatly, as will we.

  2. Dear Annie & Erin and families,
    I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your beloved Jan.
    I always enjoyed being around Jan, with her easy smile & positivity.
    She always had a funny quip when playing games with us in dinner group. Her Italian heritage shown thru often.
    She loved & was proud of her 2 daughters, their husbands and children.
    Her soul lit up when she spoke about her grandchildren.
    Jan will be missed by me and all members of our group of friends.
    Love & Peace, Denise

  3. We will miss Jan so very much. She and Dennis were members of our monthly Dinner Group since the 1980’s. After Dennis’ death in 2008, Jan continued to be a regular member of our Dinner Group and other Holiday Gatherings. Her ready smile and laughter were always present. She loved her Family and Grandchildren. They were the center of her life. She was so very proud of everyone and their accomplishments.
    Jan was a fighter and an inspiration. She never gave in to the physical pain that she lived with. Jan was a very good person, and a wonderful friend to all.

  4. Words cannot describe how sad we we are. Jan was a great daughter, wife, mother and grandmother. Most of all she was our dear friend for over 50 years. We will miss her so very much. Erin and Annie your parents meant the world to us. Now they are together in heaven.

  5. I never really knew Mrs. Cotter, but as a student of SLUH during her time there I remember seeing her in the hallways on a regular basis. I’m grateful for all that she did there to enhance my high school experience. May she find eternal rest with Our Lord. My condolences to her family.

  6. Erin & Annie,
    So sorry to learn of your mother’s passing. Be comforted by the knowledge that she is at rest and is with your father and that she will always be in your hearts.

  7. I am saddened beyond words knowing that Jan has left us. She was a dear friend for over 40 years, a wonderful colleague and both of us proud of our Italian heritage. Jan, my you rest in peace!
