The family would like to thank The Mayo Clinic Health System- Franciscan Healthcare and Onalaska Care Center for their amazing care of Jan since April of this year. And we are grateful for the care provided by the Hospice Team.
In Lieu of flowers the family would like any donations to be given to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society on behalf of Janice and Howie Cleary.
