Janelle "Jan" Pinardi August 14, 1954 - April 9, 2018

It is with great sadness that we write of the death of Janelle "Jan" Pinardi, age 63, due to complications of cancer. She passed in her home in Palm Springs, California on April 9, surrounded by her closest family and friends.

Jan was born on August 14, 1954 in Portland, to James Pinardi and Jacqueline Ricksecker, both now deceased. She graduated from Cottage Grove High School, and earned her dental hygiene degree from the University of Oregon, a profession she continued for more than 20 years. After raising her two daughters with her former husband, Ron Conrad, in Sisters, Jan entered the timeshare industry and spent most of her time at the Oregon Coast, San Diego and Palm Springs - anywhere where she could be on permanent vacation.

Her life was like heaven on earth with an onion slice: She was an avid golfer and traveler who enjoyed any opportunity to spend time with friends and family whether in Oregon, California, or Mexico. She is most remembered for her kindness and gentleness to all, and her life-long desire to enjoy every moment!

Jan is now eating cheeseburgers in paradise (and maybe a margarita) with her long-time partner, Darrell Cross, who preceded her in death. She leaves behind in this cruel world her aunt Luanne Bye; two brothers, Jeff Pinardi and Jon Pinardi (spouse Stacey); two daughters Caleah Loesche (spouse Jason) and Clarice Oksayan (spouse Parsegh); along with four nephews and four wonderful grandchildren who adore her: Olivia, Roman, Elliott and Ryker.

No services will be held for Jan as she wanted to be invited to her own memorial service (she was never one to miss a party) and it was conducted prior to her death. If you feel moved to do something in remembrance of her, please donate to the Oregon Humane Society in her name.

Until we meet you on that beautiful beach in paradise, rest in peace Jan, mom, grandma, sister, aunt, niece and friend.
