image of Jan LeeJan was born in 1956 in Long Beach, CA to Bruce and Barbara Little and spent her early years moving with her family according to her father’s duty station with the U.S. Coast Guard. The bases include those in California, Florida, Virginia, and Jan’s favorite, Kodiak Island, Alaska, where she maintained lifelong friendships.

Jan retired as an Audit Assistant from King County Auditor’s office.

Her interests included reading, hiking, shopping, and she had a talent for sewing and fabric. She took pride in her fashion sense.  Many lunch breaks consisted of a vigorous walk with friends from her job at King County Courthouse to Macy’s, Nordstrom, or other shopping venues. The combination of exercise and retail was pleasing to her.  Many will miss Jan’s positive attitude, her pleasant outlook, and her friendly approach to the universe.
