Jan Koepsel was born in a farm house in Wisconsin. When Jan was three, her family moved to Sheboygan, Wisconsin where she lived until her marriage to Warren in 1950.
Jan and Warren are the parents of three children, a son and two daughters. They have three grandchildren and one great grandson.
In her working years, Jan was what she calls a jack-of-all trades and master of none. This involved doing light housekeeping at the age of thirteen for twenty-five cents per hour, being a stay-at-home mom, and finally retiring as an Administrative Assistant for Synod of the Southwest Presbyterian Church (USA).
After retirement, the Koepsels spent many years roaming around in their RV, including volunteering in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks and seven years for Oregon State Parks.
Seven summers ago they came to White Mountain Vacation Village where they enjoy the friendliness of the people and being involved in the activities.
