Jan met the love of her life, John David Lusher, while she was still in school. They regained contact after he went into the Army serving in Vietnam. She would write letters to him and they sent reel-to-reel tapes back and forth. They married July 17, 1968, at the Harmony Wedding Chapel off of the Gulf Freeway in Houston. They were blessed with a son, John David Lusher II on Oct. 30, 1975. She enjoyed going camping and fishing with her family, and later on trips to Colorado. She worked for various companies as a bookkeeper, and later helped her husband John by keeping his books and typing up the field notes of his land surveys. She was also an excellent homemaker and mother. She always made Christmas very special for the family. Jan and John were married until his death on March 12, 2015. In her spare time, Jan liked reading and doing crossword puzzles as she enjoyed a bowl of Blue Bell ice cream.

Jan is survived by her son and daughter-in-law. John David II and Jennifer Lynn Lusher; her granddaughter, Amelia Grace Lusher; her brother and sister-in-law, James Henry and Audrey Ruth Clampett; and her sister and brother-in-law, Gloria Sue and Edwin Tomek.
