On March 8, 1962, they were blessed with their first son, Raymond Gore, and on Sept. 18, 1965, their son, Les L. Gore, joined the family.

Jan’s greatest joy was watching her sons and then her grandchildren play baseball. Many hours were spent on the sunny sidelines as their cheerleader. 

She also enjoyed hunting, fishing and camping with her family.

Jan is survived by her sons, Raymond and his wife, Sandra, and Les of La Grande; sisters, Evelyn Abigonds of Washington and Dorothy VanWinkle of Madras; seven grandchildren and two great-grand children.
