Mrs. Sheridan was born August 10, 1935, in Tulsa, OK to parents John and Merle Sparks. She attended Paschal High School in Fort Worth TX. After graduation, Jan enrolled in Hollins College (now university) in Virginia to study Psychology. Jan transferred to Kansas University to complete her degree where she met her husband, Larry Sheridan. Jan was also a member of Chi Omega sorority. Jan and Larry were married in 1956 after Larry was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant in the United States Marines. Moving to San Diego (with baby in tow), they started their life as a military family and enjoyed the Southern California climate for two years. Returning to Kansas City in the early sixties, Jan and Larry raised a family of three boys, attended all the Little League games, Boy Scouts, and school activities, and whatever life could throw at them at that time. Jan worked at the Raytown Parks and Rec Department for 20 years. After she retired, she spent her new leisure time with Larry. Jan enjoyed reading, instrumental jazz music, cars, racing (her favorite driver being Bill Elliott), and the occasional KISS concert.
She will be sorely missed by her family and friends.
Jan was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Lawrence Sheridan and son Sean Sheridan.
Survivors of Jan include: her sons Pat Sheridan (Charis) and Terry Sheridan (Hui Chen) and 5 grandchildren
