My name is Jan Bartz. I was born in Hannibal, Missouri and grew up in the St. Louis area. I went to college in the Chicago suburbs where I met my husband, Daniel, and we were married in 1976. We have had the privilege of living in many different states, including Michigan, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio, Colorado and California, where our daughters were born. When we decided to retire, we sold our house and took off in a travel trailer. When we put our wanterlust behind us and now are living happily in Potterville, Michigan.
