passed away on June 23, 2020 at the age of 74 in Seattle,

Washington.

Janet was born in January 1946 in Missoula, Montana

to Cora Francis (Richards) Olsen and Almer Martin Olsen.

She graduated from Missoula County High School in 1964. While in high school she met

the love of her life George 'Tom' Tutt who would

become her beloved husband of almost 54 years.

Jan and Tom were married in September 1966.

They spent their early married years in Missoula, then

stationed at several Air Force bases before settling

down in Gresham, Oregon where they raised their

two children, Christopher and Stephanie. Jan worked

at Powell Valley Elementary School for 18 years. Jan

and Tom also owned and operated Der Grosshandler,

a German import company for 26 years. Jan loved

traveling to Germany each year to buy handcrafted

nutcrackers and Christmas tree ornaments for her

business. Her love for these items flowed over into her

home when she spent days, with the help of family and

friends, decorating for Christmas.

Jan was a beautiful woman who will be remembered

as someone who always thought of others and put

the needs of those around her ahead of herself. She

loved her family. Jan will forever be remembered as

an amazing wife, mother and grandmother. Spending

time with family, friends, cooking and entertaining

were things Jan held dear. Jan and Tom enjoyed

hosting friends and family at their vacation home in

Bend, Oregon for a number of years. In 2014, Jan and

Tom relocated to Seattle to be closer to family.

Jan was awarded two Paul Harris Fellowships by

Rotary in honor of her contributions to others.

Jan is survived by her husband Tom, two children

Chris (Heidi) of Poway, CA, and Stephanie (Michael)

Garnett of Seattle, grandchildren Aidan, Amy, Annalie

and Elise, her brother George, as well as two nieces,

one nephew and cousins. She was preceded in death

by her mother and father. A private family memorial

service is being held at Flathead Lake, Montana, a

place Jan held dear in her heart. Donations in Jan's

memory can be made to The Salvation Army Seattle

Temple.
