Jan Painter, 66, of Mooreland passed away on Tuesday March 5, 2024 at Hickory Creek in New Castle. She was born on April 12, 1957 in New Castle to the late Donald and Jessie (Newcome) Strother.

She was a 1975 Blue River High School graduate. Jan worked as a secretary at Blue River Elementary, she was a dispatcher for the Henry County Sheriff’s Department and worked at Disney World for a short time. Jan spent time in Canada helping her sister at the Big Cannon Lake Lodge and loved to tell stories of her time spent there. In 1979 Jan went to work for Weilands Flowers in New Castle and retired in 2016 after 37 years. She enjoyed helping her husband Tom farm, being outdoors, gardening, and canning.
