Janet Bishop Deprin, passed away peacefully April 7, 2017, at Hoosier Village in Zionsville.
She was blessed with four amazing children and their wonderful spouses, 10 incredible grandchildren and four beloved great-grandchildren.

Jan was a teacher for all of us and hundreds of other young people over her 40 years as an educator and high school counselor. She had a passion for traveling and had adventures all over the world. Her favorite trips were the ones she had with her grandchildren. She was especially close with her sisters Barbara and Lois and was involved regularly with their families' lives.
She was a strong and constant advocate for women's rights, as well as a mentor and an inspiration for many. She liked teaching history and civics and cared deeply about our democracy.
Her generosity and kind spirit will be missed by everyone who knew her.
There will be a small private celebration with the immediate family at a later date. ARN Funeral and Cremation Services in Zionsville is handling arrangements.
In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to the Alzheimer's Foundation of America.
