She was the lead lunch supervisor at Highland Elementary School for the past 25 years. Jan was a beloved mother and grandmother as well as a loving wife to Gordon for 33 years. Jan enjoyed gardening; she grew her own fruits, vegetables, flowers, and roses. She was an avid reader, enjoyed attending the Elgin House Walk, and visiting the Elgin Public Library…even more so if she drove there in her Camaro.
Jan is preceded in death by her parents; one brother; one brother-in-law.
She is survived by her husband, Gordon; two children, Jamie (Richard) Flentge Yucuis of Elgin and Andrew (Aimee) Flentge of Hoffman Estates; two grandsons, Duncan and Aiden Yucuis; two sisters, June Poe of Wonder Lake and Julie Piecko of Streamwood; one brother, James Grenlin of Grand Junction, MI; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
A memorial service for Jan will be held on Saturday, September 10, 2016 at Immanuel United Church of Christ, 415 W. North Ave. Bartlett, IL. 60103 at 11 AM.
