Sweetheart Jan was born June 6, 1933 and the angels took her home on the morning of Wednesday, May 4, 2016. Shortly after waking up, she collapsed in her husband’s arms and was rushed to Holy Cross Cardiac Trauma Center where she passed after a few minutes with cardiac arrest. Jan had a long time residency in Sunland since 1966 and prior to that she lived in Burbank, Ca. from 1959 – 1966. She was a member of The Church On The Way where she served for 30 years alongside her husband, Donald McLish. They were married for 40 years.
Jeanette’s celebration of life and final graveside committal was held at Glen Haven Memorial Park, Sylmar, California on May 13. It was a glorious farewell with several friends and family in attendance. The service was officiated by Pastor Jim Nelson of The Church On The Way and Pastor David Laird of Pearblossom Foursquare.
She is survived by her husband, Donald McLish, her daughter Beverly Peever of Laguna Hills, California with grandchild Christina and a greatgranddaughter Allison; granddaughter Shannon; daughter Joanne Johnson in Charlotte; grandchildren Lori, Lesley, and Michael; daughter Linda Locklear also in North Carolina; granddaughters Kim and Kelly; several nephews and nieces and a host of other relatives and friends. She was a loving and unselfish giver, always with the light of Jesus shining within her, and always putting others first. She will be missed greatly, but our comfort comes from above, knowing she is in heaven.
