Janice “Jann” Girt, 78, of Wilsonville passed away peacefully February 24, of natural causes. A lifetime resident of Oregon, Jann and family were well-loved and impacted many in the Portland, Pacific City, and Central Oregon communities.
Jann married her grade-school sweetheart, Dick Girt, in 1962. They were blessed with three children: son Steve, born in 1963, son Tod, born in 1965, and daughter Julianne, born in 1969. She was very proud of her and Dick’s membership in the first graduating class of Sunset High School, in 1961.
Jann was very active in her churches, serving as wedding coordinator at The Old Scotch Church in Hillsboro for many years and at Pacific City Bible Church, which she and Dick helped to plant and grow. She was an active participant at Lord’s Acre, as well as many small-group Bible studies and women’s groups with Powell Butte Christian Church.
An avid quilter, chef, and homemaker, ”Mimi” enjoyed her role as grandmother to Danielle, Nina, Ty, and Emma and sharing her passions with them.
Jann was preceded in death by first husband, Dick; sons Steve and Tod.
She is survived by her daughter, Julianne Horner; dear cousin Linda; and her four grandchildren.
A memorial service will be held at Powell Butte Christian Church on April 23, at 1 p.m.
