In loving memory of Jan Walters Faultersack, a beacon of strength and compassion who dedicated over 40 years of her life to healing and caring for others. As a nurse, she embodied a rare combination of fierceness and love that touched the lives of countless patients, colleagues, and friends.

Through her four decades of service, Jan left an indelible mark on our hearts and in our institution. Her fierce determination to provide the best care possible was matched only by her boundless compassion and kindness towards everyone she encountered. Whether it was holding a patient’s hand through a difficult moment or advocating tirelessly for their needs, she was a steadfast advocate and guardian of health.

Beyond her professional excellence, Jan was a pillar of support and a mentor to many in the CAVA community. “Her wisdom, patience, infectious smile, and unwavering dedication inspired all who had the privilege of working alongside her.” Her legacy lives on not just in the lives she saved and comforted, but in the values she instilled in her colleagues and the standards she set for compassionate care.

In every interaction, Jan brought warmth, understanding, and a genuine concern for others. Her love for her work was palpable, and her commitment to making a difference in the lives of others was unmatched. She approached each day with a resilience that was as remarkable as it was admirable.

As we mourn her passing, we celebrate a life well-lived—a life defined by service, love, and an unwavering dedication to others. Jan will forever remain in our hearts as a shining example of what it means to embody both strength and tenderness in equal measure. Her legacy will continue to inspire us all to strive for excellence and to approach our work with the same passion and care that she exemplified every day.
