Janisse Martin Meikle Zabriskie passed away peacefully in her sleep on Saturday, February 10, 2018, at home, surrounded by her family. Jan was born August 25, 1946, in Ogden, Utah, to Edward Rich Martin and Georgia Smith Martin.
Jan graduated from Ogden High School and Utah State University. She married her sweetheart, James Allen Meikle, on June 21, 1968, in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. They raised four children together. After 43 wonderful years, Jim passed away in 2012. Jan married her next sweetheart, Noel Zabriskie, on June 15, 2013.
She enjoyed years of being at home raising her children and then working for various local businesses. In 2013, she retired as an administrative assistant with Ogden City. During those years she received various recognitions and awards. She also served on numerous committees and organizations. Jan was a faithful member of the LDS Church and loved the people she served with at the Ward and Stake levels. Family and friends will remember her feisty spirit, determination to enjoy life, and her infectious laughter. Jan was always the first to say "Hello" and shared love and kindness with everyone.
