Janice Florence Heyn was born to Raymond "Ray" and Helen (Moes) Heyn on February 23, 1945 in Watertown SD. She grew up in Kranzburg, SD, Fargo, North Dakota, and Watertown, SD and attended schools in Kranzburg, Fargo, North Dakota, and Waverly, SD.

Jan married William Brist on October 3, 1964 in Watertown, SD. She worked at Memorial Hospital, Brown Clinic, Shopko, and various other places.

In addition to her love of raising a family, Jan's hobbies were gardening, yard work, floral arrangements, crafts, counted cross stitch, making things, league darts, dancing, cooking, baking and playing card games and other games. She also loved helping and giving to others. Going to Church, reading her Bible, and spreading God's love and word was very important to Jan. She enjoyed reading Christian books, listening to Christian music and other music. Time spent with her family, especially her grandchildren and friends, were especially an enjoyment and treasure to her. She was a fan of NASCAR racing and the Denver Broncos.

Jan is survived by one daughter, Lynn Althoff; her grandchildren, Jamie Conlon and Kabrina Althoff; her great-granddaughters, Zoey and Kyah; and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her daughter, Lori Brist, her son, Brian Brist, and her grandson, Justin Althoff.

Many years ago I worked with Jan at Shopko, her at the service desk and I upstairs. She had a perfectly coiffed head of blonde curls and smelled of Krystle perfume, I bought it because of her. Jan had lovely graceful hands, always the same frosted polish. When someone you know but haven't seen in years passes memories come to the well Jan. My sympathy to her family.
