Janis Kaye Moore (Johnson) born April 25, 1948 to Herald and Florence Johnson in Long Beach, CA passed away December 1, 2018 in Greeley, CO. On May 2, 1970 Jan married Gary Moore and together they had Heather and Mark.
Jan had many passions. Her most important one was serving the Lord. She loved spending time with family and friends. Jan was a hot air balloon pilot for many years and was awarded the longest flying female pilot of the Colorado Springs balloon festival and was a member of the Amelia Earhart 99's Club. Jan loved animals of all sorts and was a volunteer at The Wild Animal Sanctuary for a few years after she retired as a transcriptionist for Greeley Medical Clinic Urgent Care. She was also awarded the 20 year belt buckle for her time served as a Greeley Stampede Wrangler.
Jan had an incredible zest for life and everyone who knew her knew her infectious laugh and the sparkle in her eye. She always had a vibrant smile and an admirable outlook on life with an unconquerable spirit.
Next to the Lord, Jan loved her granddaughters Rachel and Eliana and her great granddaughter Peighton. She enjoyed watching them grow, teaching them life's lessons and playing pretend.
Jan is survived by her husband Gary, daughter Heather (Wayne) Wacker, son Mark (Becky) Moore, sister Sherri (Steven) Woodall, granddaughters, great granddaughter, nieces, nephews and many, many friends who loved her dearly.
A Celebration of Life Service will be held at 2:00p.m. Monday December 10, 2018 at Christ Community Church, 1301 15th St.
Memorial contributions may be made to a charity of your choice in Jan’s name.
Family of Janis,
My name is Jessica and I am a nurse at NCMC. I took care of Janis during her final days. I wanted to express my sincere condolence for your loss. I was glad to know Janis and hear her incredible life story and battle with Cancer. I could see the love you all had for one another and know she will be dearly missed. I can't imagine how difficult this time must be. Take comfort in the fact she is resting in God's memory until he awakens her from death (John 5:28, 29). May your family have peace and be comforted during this difficult time.

Gary, Heather, Wayne, Mark, and Becky,
Our family has great, positive memories of Jan at your home and at church. We can hear her laugh... especially at Richard's jokes. :) She entertained us when we went to your home in North Greeley for Christmas Eve, and we lit sparklers outside. We are amazed at how fast she could type her medical reports. At one point we had a rabbit that we didn't know how to care for and Jan answered many questions for us. She added so much sparkle to a conversation.
With you we mourn her death, but rejoice in her homegoing to Jesus. Richard and Carol

Mark and Becky. We are so sorry for the passing of your Mom. Our prayers are with you and your family. We send our love. The Maztech family.
Janice and I worked together at Nelson, Haley, Patterson & Quirk. We were both secretaries sharing an office. We worked diligently, laughed a lot and shared sorrow at the loss of you first baby. It was a wonderful experience working together. Janice and I ran into each other a few times after we both left NHPQ. Same Janice I worked with upbeat and involved with her life and her family. Sally

Dear Gary, Heather, and Mark,
I moved to TX in March 2014 (Plano--a N. Dallas suburb) where both Krystal and Lynette live. I want to extend to all of you my deepest sympathy for the loss of your precious wife and mother. I have such wonderful memories of all the good times we shared at Sunny View Nazarene church and watching Heather and Mark grow up. Jan was such a "hoot" to be around and we had several wonderful visits by phone after you moved to Platteville and I didn't get to see you anymore (except for seeing Mark on a regular basis at Ehrlich Nissan service). It was never the same after you left, Mark. May God surround you with His love and peace as you navigate this journey of great loss. With love, Joanne

Mark and Heather, I'm sorry and sad about the loss of your mom. She was a wonderful lady and I have happy memories of her visiting the blood donor room, showing off her car, and launching the balloon. I hope your tears are softened by the smiles of fun memories.
