She was born November 7, 1957 at Methodist Hospital in Dallas, Texas, to James Lawson and Mary Imogene (Brown) Tucker. She grew up in Billington and in Waco, Texas. She married Randall Simons on December 29, 1995 and they settled in Speegleville, Texas. Jan loved to help people and spent much of her life working in the Radiology department at Providence Hospital in Waco. After retiring, Jan loved being outdoors working in the yard, fishing with Randy, or playing with her two lovable bloodhounds Harley and Jax. She loved to read and shared her love of books with her daughter, Jamee. Above all else, she loved her family. Her grandkids were her greatest love. Her favorite thing to tell Morgan, Maryn, Lawson, Elliot and Hazel was “I love you to the moon and back.”

She is survived by her husband, Randy, her son Billy Kitchens and wife Stephanie, her daughter Jamee Binner and husband Kyle, her step-son Jeffrey Simons and wife Alyse, her brother Jimmy and wife Debbie, her brother Kenneth and wife Glenda, her brother Joe and wife Shelly, her brother David and wife Lori, her lifelong best friend Sue Roberts and grandchildren Morgan, Maryn, Lawson, Elliot and Hazel.
