Obituary for Jan Lerner

Jan Lerner passed away on November 13, 2018, after a short battle with lung cancer superimposed on her valiant effort to live with dementia. She leaves behind two daughters, Cindy Heckscher of Philadelphia and Betsy Highland of Carbondale; five grandchildren; and five great grandchildren ranging in age from 10 to 17 years old.

Jan and her husband, Chuck Lerner, were well known throughout Southern Illinois, he for his numerous civic activities and contributions, and Jan for her regional reputation as one of the top and most highly respected realtors in the area. Jan was also loved for her caring ways, always counted upon to provide support for the families of her many friends who passed away over the years.

A private interment service will be held at Pleasant Grove Memorial Park and Mausoleum, followed by a memorial service to be scheduled later in the spring.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that contributions be made to the Hospice of Southern Illinois and to Beta Camp of Southern Illinois for Children with Type 1 Diabetes.

Meredith Funeral Home, Carbondale assisted the family with arrangements.
