Janett "Jan" Hamm, age 78, of Brooklyn Center, MN passed away peacefully June 19, 2020.
A devoted Operating Room - Registered Nurse, Jan dedicated almost her entire career at Abbott Northwestern Hospital. She was a very colorful and fiercely independent person who loved to travel and enjoyed attending pro baseball games.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Kathryn & Harold Mengelkoch.
Survived by her children, Nancy (Troy) Eckdahl and Tim Hamm; her sister, Judy (Bruce) Johnson and brother, John (Brenda) Mengelkoch and she took extreme pride in her 4 grandchildren, Kelsie, Matthew, Kayla, and Andrew. Jan was a faithful and prayerful parishioner of St. Alphonsus Church for 55+ years where she enjoyed singing in the choir and helping the medical volunteers with monthly blood pressure checks, etc.
A Christian Mass to celebrate her life will be at 11 AM Wednesday, July 8, 2020, with visitation after 10:30 AM, at St. Alphonsus Catholic Church, 7025 Halifax Ave. N., Brooklyn Center.
In lieu of flowers, memorials preferred.
It is a place of compassion, sincerity, professionalism, and staff who go above and beyond their call of duty. Our family has sadly used both chapels over the past months. The caring did not stop after the services. They offer their continued compassion to adults and children. With grateful hearts thank you.
