MOUNT VERNON — Janis Diane Marconi, 66, of Mount Vernon, passed away Monday, June 3, 2019, at her residence. She was born July 19, 1952, in Niagara Falls, New York, to the late Richard and Marjorie (Cooper) Sample.
Jan was loved by everyone she met and touched them with a word or two of her wisdom. She was one of the most beautiful souls on Earth. Jan had healing hands and a healing heart. She was a physical therapist for all of her adult life and started many clinics including Rhythms of Life she ran with Deb for 10 years. If anyone needed help or treatments, she would be the first one there. Jan had a strong faith, and wasn’t afraid to teach each of our grandkids of it. She always had a smile on her face and saw the positive side to every situation. She will be missed from the depths of our hearts.
She is survived by her life partner of 21 years, Deb Schouten; mother and father in-law, Bruce and Molly Schouten; children, Erin Cramer, Nick (Halie Chaffin) Schouten, Nick (Lindsay) Marconi, Maggie (Brad) Crawford; four grandchildren; her oldest granddaughter, Makayla, the spark in her life; sisters, Fran (Dan) Hoover, Katie Roller, Rick (Kris) Sample; numerous nieces and nephews.
