Jann was a beautiful spirit among us, always considerate of others and will be remembered for her devotion to her family. She had a loving heart, wonderful sense of humor and a glowing smile.

Jann was involved in Beta Sigma Phi sorority for over 50 years and was honored with their Golden Circle Certificate. She took pleasure in painting, dancing, bird watching and spending time with her five grandchildren.

Late in life Jann began bicycling and rode across Iowa in the annual RAGBRAI event, also bicycling with friends throughout Bavaria. Over the years she visited many of the National Parks, and traveled to Switzerland, Germany, Italy and Alaska.

She is survived by husband, Richard Purvis of Ozark, Missouri; three children, Joelle Lennard of Lee’s Summit, Missouri, Jeff (Tina) Purvis of Nixa, Missouri, Jeniel (Mark) Fiorella of Lee’s Summit, Missouri; and 5 grandchildren. She is also survived by her two brothers, Jack (Bonnie) Weaver of North Albany, Oregon, and Jim Weaver of Burlington, Iowa.

Janice and I were grade school friends. Part of the Saunderson School brats. We were neighbors also and played together often. We lost touch and reconnected at our 50 th reunion. It was so great to see her after all those years. She was a good friend growing up.

Your mother/wife was one special lady. I remember when I had my first breast cancer surgery Jan sent me a Willow Tree Statue. She was so thoughtful. She was as beautiful inside as she was out
