Alan Krawczyk on behalf of his family has written a moving and loving testimonial to his mother;
“She will be remembered by many as the mother figure at Troon volleyball club where she would score and help with match day organisation. She was also their biggest fan, supporting her husband Vince and daughters Elaine and Jenny week in and week out. Her legacy in Scottish volleyball is continued by Elaine, Jenny and Alan who have all represented Scotland at every level. Jan was also a tremendous support for her son Grant who is not as familiar to the volleyball community, with everything he did in his rugby and academic careers.”
