Jan W. Lister (Hawkley) returned to her forever home after a long battle with an illness, on August 14, 2021 with family and friends at her bedside.
Jan was born to Olive Rae Woodland, June 21 1951, in Inkom Idaho. She was loved by her mother, Grandma and Grandpa Woodland and by all her aunts and uncles. Her family was joined by Donald Hawkley a year into her life and she gained the most loving father that a daughter could have. The Hawkley family continued to grow with the addition of Kerry Hawkley (Kathy), Susan Christensen (Steve) and Kevin Hawkley (Debbie). Jan was raised in a very loving home by parents and siblings who loved her until the very end. Jan attended Borah High, participating in choir seminary and weightlifting, graduating in 1969. Jan met her eternal companion, Otis Dale Lister, at an LDS church dance and they began dating. Jan and Dale were married on June 14,1972 and began their journey together. Even though life had its ups and downs it was always obvious how much Jan was loved by her husband who dedicated his life to making her happy. Together Jan and Dale had six kids, Richard Lister (Alicia), Robert Lister, Tracy Redmon (Russ), James Lister, Larry Lister, and John Lister. Jan was a good mom but she was an amazing grandma to her seven grandkids (Kirsten Randall, Jacob Lister, Madison Lister, Nathan Lister, Logan Lister, Tabitha Redmon and Sabrina Redmon) and three great grandchildren (Camden, Carson, and Shane). All of her grandchildren knew they were loved and she played a role in caring for all of them when they were little. Jan loved all her children but was most happy and proud when surrounded by her grandkids.
Jan is preceded in death by her parents Donald and Olive Hawkley and her son Larry Lister.
