Janet Lynne Schiro of La Junta passed away February 5, 2022, at the age of 64. She was born August 3, 1957, in Rocky Ford to Howard Vance Holter and Lois Jean (Henney) Holter.

Jan graduated from Cheraw High School in 1975 and graduated from Otero Junior College in 1977. She worked as the Registrar at Otero Junior College, a career she loved, for 30 plus years until her retirement in 2010. Jan had a strong faith in God and was the pianist at The First Church of God in Rocky Ford for 30 plus years.

Jan was a devoted daughter who was there for her parents, especially in their times of need. She was a wonderful, loving mother who never missed a school activity or sporting event, etc. She always said throughout her life, that her kids were her "Whole World" and she lived that out every day. For the last 12 years in her retirement, she immensely enjoyed traveling. She took numerous trips throughout the United States as well as Mexico with her kids and her friends. Jan enjoyed her time participating in the activities through the La Junta Senior Center - Scrabble, cards, crochet, luncheons, trips, and other activities. She also enjoyed working in her garden in the spring/summer and could grow the best flowers!

Jan was a strong, beautiful soul inside and out. She loved all her family, friends, and grand pups with her whole heart.
