Jan Nicholson (Jannich) joined us on October 23, 2004, She was a helpful and active contributor to our African Violet Forum. Jan was an artistic and creative person and loved doing crafts along with gardening. She enjoyed trading plants and you could also find her over in the plant trading forums and round robin areas. She also liked growing tropical plants and was always happy to share.

She was taken from us suddenly and will be missed by many friends and family.

I have so many good memories. We had a lot of good times together. Jan was a really good friend. If you knew her on the internet group, you knew her in person, she was just the same. Nice, caring, friendly and great sense of humor.

She really did love growing plants. Indoors, outdoors, didn't matter, she loved all kinds of flowers and plants. Always ready to share her plants and her knowledge of growing them. She loved to experiment with different growing methods. Enjoyed growing from seed...she had great luck with that. I never had much luck with seeds, but Jan had a green thumb with them!

Back when I was growing African Violets, Jan was growing gesneriads. We started trading plants and I would give her av's and she gave me gessies....they were pretty neat and my interest in them grew. Thru the years, we traded a LOT of different kinds of plants. I will really miss that, I've always looked for something "different" to give her.

She gave me the gift of her friendship and I am blessed to have known her. After the rain, comes the rainbow. Love you Jan, Always & Forever
