Janet Maxine Boyers, 71, of Longmont, CO went to heaven on January 3rd, 2020 at 6pm after losing a battle to aggressive ovarian cancer. She was an incredible, gracious, loving lady, with strong faith. She was preceded in death by her parents Earl and Maxine Streicher, her brother Mike Streicher, and her oldest son, Brad. She is survived by her husband Jack, in Longmont, CO, son, Chris (Terri), granddaughter Paige, and six cousins.

Jan was born on September 2nd, 1948 and grew up in Toledo, Ohio where she attended Toldeo University. She met her husband Jack and they were married in 1969, having their son Brad soon after in 1972. In 1975 they moved to Boulder, CO where Jan enjoyed being a mother, an avid gardener, reading, volunteering, running a household, and creating long lasting friendships. Faith was important to Jan and for many years she attended First Presbyterian Church. In 1977, she and Jack had a second son Chris and in 1983 she obtained a teachers' aide position with Mesa Elementary School in Boulder, CO. For twenty-three years she worked in various positions including assistant librarian, playground monitor, and school nurse. She loved to travel and visited all 50 states and helped form the exclusive Boulder Book Club "Wine, Women and Words". With her husband, Jack she enjoyed two European river cruises, and three ocean cruises. In 2011, Jan became a certified Stephens Minister. That same year she followed Jack to Spokane, WA for an airport construction project, and returned to Colorado in 2012. She was also an active memver of the woman's philanthropic organization PEO Chapter GB and was in two book clubs, loved to dance, and always wanted to eat Mexican Food. In 2014, she and Jack moved to Longmont, CO and began attending Ascent Church in Louisville. Her family will always miss her smile, wit, kindness, good cooking, and genuine love for everyone she knew.

In lieu of flowers, Jack requests that contributions be given to the American Cancer Foundation or to Jack to help set up a college fund for Jan and Jack's only grandchild, Paige Boyers.
