Jeannette "Jan" C. Gillham

July 6, 1949 — November 20, 2022

Jeannette (Jan) Catherine Gillham, 73, of Casper, passed away from complications of diabetes and heart disease on Sunday, November 20, 2022 at Wyoming Medical Center.  Jeannette was born in Lawrence and was the daughter of the late Leo Lord and Catherine (Winning) Lord of Salem, NH.

She attended local public schools and later graduated from Nursing school.  She went to work at the local hospital as an LPN.

After her career as a nurse she moved to Casper, Wyoming to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors and spend time with her family.  There she decided to continue her desire to care for others by running her own daycare in Casper.  Jeannette spent many years sharing her love with children and animals. Both seemed to have a way of winning over her heart. She spent hours volunteering at the local animal shelter where she herself rescued many animals over the years.  Jeannette was very devoted to her faith and loved attending Paradise Valley Christian church where she had many close friends. Jeannette enjoyed fishing, camping, and many other outdoor activities.  Despite living in Casper, Jan remained a faithful fan of the New England Patriots whom she grew to love during her time living in MA & NH.

Jeannette is survived by her son John H. Gillham of Salt Lake City, Utah, a sister Mrs. Sharon (Lord) Bell and her husband Richard of Casper, WY & Punta Gorda, FL., and many nieces and nephews. Jeannette was predeceased by her parents, sister Sandra (Lord) Mignanelli and her brother, Jeffrey Lord.

A memorial service will be held at Paradise Valley Christian Church on Wednesday, November 30, 2022 at 1:00 p.m. by Larry Berlin and Charles Gwynn, followed by a burial at Memorial Gardens Cemetery.

Memorial donations in her memory may be made to The Paradise Valley Christian School. The family would like to thank the Paradise Valley Christian Church congregation for all the love and support they have shown Jan throughout the years.
