her side. Jan was born in Brooklyn, NY, the daughter of the late Marguerite (Oxenham) and Walter Carrick, and the wife of 54 years to

In her later years, Jan enjoyed organizing and traveling the world with the Holliston Senior Center. Jan was a
loving and devoted wife, daughter, mother and grandmother. She found
much joy in helping others and loved spending time with friends and
family, with the most treasured people in her life being her grandsons who
affectionately referred to their grandmother as “Ma Jan”.
