Janice Glenn Armstrong, age 75, passed away peacefully on the morning of Saturday, April 3, 2021 at her home in Greensboro, North Carolina, surrounded by her loved ones. She was born on January 3, 1946 in Salem, Oregon to Dean & Betty Glenn. Raised in California, she was a 1964 graduate of Irvington High School.
While raising her family as a single mom, she relocated to Virginia in 1986, where she retired from TRW/Northrup Grumman after over 30 years as a Senior Executive Assistant. After retirement, she returned to California and occupied her time working at a winery, which was one of her truest passions.
She settled in North Carolina in 2005 to be near her children and grandchildren. Not being one to sit still, Jan decided to go back to work. She worked for Edward Ferrell/Lewis Mittman where she enjoyed the fast pace of the furniture market and did finally retire after working for Home Instead Senior Care as a caretaker.
A few of her other passions included being involved in her church, horseback riding, being at the beach, and rescuing cats!
Jan is survived by her beloved ex-husband Michael Armstrong; three children Todd Armstrong, Deanna Hayhurst (Jeff Hayhurst), Nicole A. Lovejoy; her five grandchildren, Zachary Hayhurst, Taylor Armstrong, Chandler Hayhurst, Madison Armstrong, Jacob Lovejoy; her sister Kathy Otteson (Ralph Otteson); her nieces and nephews Beth Guadagni, Elaine Monahan, Ron Glenn, Tim Glenn, Danny Glenn, David Otteson and Jenna Lund.
Jan was reunited in Heaven with her parents, and her brother Larry Glenn.
