She was also blessed with several wonderful nieces and nephews.  Jan grew up in Gretna, LA and was a resident of Terrytown, LA. Jan was a special lady whose heart touched everyone she met. Jan was an energetic business woman and loved the wedding industry. She owned Crystal Bridal Salon in Metairie for many years until she decided to move out of retail and to get into the wedding reception business. Jan was the owner of New Orleans Ladies Ballroom in Gretna, LA and built it into a sought-after venue for weddings and parties. Jan especially loved Mardi Gras and was a member of several krewes throughout her life. Jan was Queen Guinevere of the Krewe of King Arthur in 2005 and Queen of Krewe of Adonis in 2010.
