Goodbye – Jan Fowler [2020-10-26]

Jan Fowler, who called for dances at the Wheatland Festival and other Wheatland events (Traditional Arts Weekend, monthly dances, Wheatscouts) for nearly 40 years, died on October 26, 2020. According to her husband, Ron, some of Jan’s favorite things about Wheatland were leading Family Dances on the Dance Stage, experiencing the festival with her daughters, Jolene and Ella (and later grandkids), waltzing with Ron, and playing her piano during jams in the Performers’ Area (where Jan was famous for calling out, “One more time!”). Ron described the Wheatland Community as “our second family, with those friendships being some of the most important relationships in our lives.”
