How Did We Do?

Janice (Jan) E. Roberts Mears, 76, of Auburn, passed away Thursday, April 13 in Fort Wayne's Parkview Randillia Hospital. She was born on July 16, 1940 in Plainfield, New Jersey to Raymond and Evelyn Roberts. On January 1st, 1961, she married Howard (Bud) Mears, sharing 23 years together. Jan lived in Seymour from 1963-1985. She then moved to the Fort Wayne area until her passing. She is preceded in death by her parents, brother, Clinton (Butch) Roberts and sister, Norma Thomlinson. She is survived by four children; Cindy (Drew) Noye, Sharon Townsend, Gary (Loli) Mears, and Kathy (Dwayne) Hohenstreiter, She is also survived by 11 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren. Jan worked at DeKalb Hospital as a pharmacy technician and enjoyed her co-workers and all of her customers whether regulars or just one time visitors. She was well-liked by all who met her. Jan especially loved attending her grandchildren's events. She rarely missed a ballgame and always came dressed in her spirit wear. Jan loved playing bridge and enjoyed socializing with her lady card friends. She loved her two dogs, Maggie and Molly, often taking them on several walks a day all snazzy in their matching dog coats. She was always well prepared with a pocket of dog treats to reward them for good behavior. They definitely helped keep her company!
Family and friends are invited to gather in Seymour, on April 23 at Voss and Sons Funeral Service from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. Afterwards, everyone is invited to go to the First United Methodist Church for light refreshments. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be given to the American Cancer Society for the local Relay for Life fund.
