Janis Faye Carper passed away peacefully at home in Fairview, TX, on Saturday, July 10, after an 11 year battle with cancer. Jan was born on August 29, 1941 in Sioux City, Iowa, to John "Jake" and Mabel Jacobson. She was baptized and confirmed at Skien Lutheran Church, Sloan, IA, and graduated from Sloan High School in 1959. Jan lived in Guthrie Center, IA, Decatur and Springfield, IL, Hoxie, KS, and Spencer, IA, and Odebolt, IA from the 1960s through the early 1970s. Jan started working for GOMACO Corporation in Ida Grove, IA, in 1973. She married Carl Carper on April 15, 1976, in Menno, SD.
