"Jan" was born September 4, 1938, to the late George Washington and Mary Magdalene Collins Lawson in Forsyth County. She was also preceded in death by 5 brothers and 6 sisters.

A graduate of Glenn High School, Jan served others for nearly 50 years in a variety of administrative positions at RJ Reynolds Tobacco Co., Routh Oil Co. and Hampton-Voss Realtors.

Jan was a lifelong member of Sedge Garden United Methodist Church where she sang in the choir for many years. She had a passion for mowing and working in her yard, and flower and vegetable gardening brought her much enjoyment. She also loved music and travel.
