Jannette ‘Jan’ Lucille (Noble) Sullivan
August 24, 1939 – January 23, 2018
Jannette(Jan) Sullivan, in the comfort of her family, and after a short story (read by her great-granddaughter Isabell) passed away on the evening of January 23, 2018. Jan was born on August 24, 1939, to Verna and Bill Noble, in Ainsworth, Nebraska.
As a child Jan enjoyed spending time with her twin sister and best friend Janice Yerby. Together they allowed the rest of the world to enjoy their witty sense of humor of trading places and their enviable bond of closeness.
In junior high and high school Jan enjoyed playing the drums for the school band. On September 22, 1956, in Boise, Idaho, Jannette married her high school sweetheart, Dennis Sullivan. Together, they loved and raised seven children and one very special niece: Nancy Davies (Rick), Peggy Whelden, Mary Harrold (Dan), Pat Sullivan (Dory), Karon Stanek (Stan), Sharon Price (David) Jeff Sullivan and Pam Milner (Mike). While raising her children she was active in various school duties and church activities. Jan also worked at Montgomery Wards as a sales associate for over 20 years. Later in life, Jan loved fishing, (especially the Siletz Bay area), traveling, going for long drives, spending time with family, talking with her sister Janice, assisting others, and listening to/participating in live music. Jan especially enjoyed holiday gatherings with friends and family.
Jan is the proud grandmother of 14 grandchildren, 13 great-grandchildren, and 1 great-great grandchild Nalah. She was preceded in death by her husband, parents, and siblings Darrell Lehman, Don Noble, and Paul Lehman.
Mom’s love and compassion for others will be greatly missed by those who knew her.
