Born in Waseca, Minnesota
Resided in Oakdale, California


Janice Fortier, longtime resident of San Jose (Berryessa) and Sunnyvale, passed away on Saturday, October 27 at home with family in Oakdale, Calif. after a battle with cancer. Born to Wally Daehn and Mae Fern Platt (Daehn) in Waseca, Minn., she was known to most as simply Jan, including her friends from Fremont High School, the Bunco Girls, and her colleagues at Sierramont Middle School and Len Conrad Photography. To Jan, nothing was more important than children, and you would know she was there when you would hear across the room, “Isn’t that precious!”

She is survived by her husband Tim, son Roger, and daughter Jamie; her sister Cathy and sister-in-law Marilou; brothers-in-law Tim and Ed; son-in-law David; daughter-in-law Tara; and grandchildren Amanda, Adam and Bradley.

Friends and family are invited to attend a Funeral Service Thursday, November 1st at 11:00 a.m. at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church, 1025 The Dalles Avenue, Sunnyvale, CA 94087.

She will be laid to rest at Alta Mesa Cemetery in Palo Alto, Calif. with her mom and dad.
