On Saturday, July 12, 1997, after a shockingly brief illness, our beloved "Jannie" was taken from us back home into the loving arms of our Heavenly Father. We will miss her greatly.

The third of five children, Jannie was born on February 13, 1957, to Beverlee Ann Powell and Reed Tolman. Our beautiful "Yellow Bird" was only 40. On December 26, 1981 she married Richard Dick' Nourse and together spent many happy years, before they finally separated in 1989. Their union was blessed with a daughter, Giana LaRee, now age 12.Jan possessed many skills as an accomplished legal secretary, but the center of Jan's life was and always will be her darling daughter Giana, whom she loved with all her heart and whose loss cannot be measured.

During the last two years, Jannie's life was greatly blessed by the love and tender care of a gentle giant of a man, Ken Bosley, whom she loved dearly. Jannie's sweet and generous nature won the hearts of all who knew her. Many friends and her family are stunned and grieved by their sudden loss.

She is survived by her daughter, Giana Nourse; her mother and father; her two sisters, Pamela Beckham and Natalie Hatch; her two bothers, David and Alan Tolman; eight nephews, four nieces; and her beloved Bosley. "Good-bye, Little Wren".

Friends and family may call at the Larkin Mortuary, 260 East South Temple, Tuesday from 7-9 p.m. and Wednesday, 11-11:45 a.m. prior to funeral services at 12 noon. Interment, Honeyville Cemetery at approximately 3 p.m.
