After struggling with several strokes and then a heart attack last year, Jan Glover, 71, went to be home with her Savior on July 7, 2020. She left us peacefully and not in pain. Born in Florence, Ala., on Jan. 7, 1949, Jan Carolyn Snyder spent her early years in the South. She was raised by her parents, Bill and Ouida Snyder, with her older brother and sister, Rodney and Lucy Snyder.

In her early 20s, Jan studied the field of special education at Texas A&M University. In her late 20s, she met and quickly fell in love with Thomas Glover. They married on Oct. 30, 1979.

Thomas and Jan moved to western Washington, specifically Bremerton. Over the next 20 years in Washington, Laura, Micah and Bethany were born, respectively. The family decided to move to Libby in 1999, finding and buying a house online.

Jan spent the rest of her life in Libby. She worked at the Achievements thrift store and group home over the years. Many knew and loved Jan as a friend, “adopted” mom and a confidant that was always willing to listen and give a hug.

Jan was a kind and compassionate soul, always willing to help another person. Her fried chicken and mashed potatoes will be sorely missed as well as her quick wit and subtly inappropriate sense of humor. We love you forever and to eternity Jan, Mommy, Nana. Rest peacefully in paradise.

Jan is survived by her husband, Thomas Glover; daughter, Bethany Glover; son, Micah Glover; daughter, Laura Glover; and her two grandsons, Robert and Tristan Nelson.
