Jan graduated from Madison High School in 1947. She married the love of her life, Leonard "Fred" Frost on June 17, 1950 and was a homemaker her entire life. She loved her family and enjoyed many trips to visit her children after they were grown and her Coach trips where she made many friends. Jan loved being a homemaker, sewing, gardening, growing beautiful violets and reading. She was an active member of St. Timothy Lutheran Church for many years, and participated in a multitude of activities over the years.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her beloved husband of nearly 50 years, Leonard "Fred" Frost in January 2000; a sister, Mary L. Long; and two sons-in-law, Ed Eckstein and Mark Haymaker.
