Janice Lee Tomlin, 71, of Little River, KS and formerly of Hutchinson, KS and McPherson, KS, went to be with the Lord peacefully on Sunday, June 9, 2019, at Harry Hynes Memorial Hospice Center, Wichita, KS after a brave four month hospitalization with lung issues and discovering she had a rare lung cancer. Jan and her husband, Bill, owned the donut shop within Welles Department Store in Hutchinson and a few other local businesses. She was also employed at the Dillons Central Bakery. Many years were spent as a homemaker perfecting many well know dishes along with lots of fishing, reading, sewing and living the city farm life. Her passion for the medical world later called her to become a medical lab tech for Hertzler Clinic, Halstead Hospital, and McPherson Hospital.

She graduated early from McPherson High School and continued her education at Adela Hale Business School, Hutchinson. She graduated from Hutchinson Community College and gained her Medical Lab Tech Certification. She was just one class away from completing her bachelor’s degree from Friends University, Wichita.

She was a member of New Gottland Covenant Church, McPherson.

She was preceded in death by her parents and grandson, Colt Tomlin.
