Jan was the best mom in the world to Daniel J Freedman (Stephanie) and Beth E Freedman and a terrific grammy to Kady Grace Freedman.
She was the kind of mom you danced in the kitchen with, learned how to play black-jack from and loved to laugh with. Her most important gift was how she lived her life. She met every stranger with kindness, compassion, and non-judgement and instantly turned them into friends. Her heart had endless patience and humanity for anyone who needed a mom to listen, care, understand and accept.
She was a loving and protective big sister to David L Hocker, Clifford F Hocker Jr and Lee E Hocker and a very dear Aunt to her nephews Troy D Hocker and Jesse L Hocker.
She was preceded in death by her dad, Clifford F Hocker Sr and her mom and best friend, Betty J Hocker.
Jan graduated from John Harris High School in Harrisburg, PA in 1967 and lived her life bringing beauty to her surroundings with her effortless artistic style.
She will be irreplaceable to those who were fortunate enough to encounter her accepting and comforting spirit.
In lieu of a formal event, Jan’s life will be celebrated as she lived; simply, surrounded by the peace of nature with those she adored.
To honor her memory, merely be kind to one another.
