Janice (Jan) Marie (Urban) Bergman, 70, went to eternally rest in peace surrounded by her loving family on Tuesday, July 9, 2019. Jan was born in Hamtramck, Mich. on December 1, 1948, to John August Urban and Irene Theresa (Nowak) Urban. She attended Rosary High School in Detroit graduating in 1966.
On May 3, 1969, she married her best friend and soul mate, Lawrence (Larry) J. Bergman. Jan and Larry recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary together at their home in Brooklyn, Mich.
Jan is survived by her loving husband, Larry, and her two children, Gary (Amy) Bergman and grandson, Gage Bergman, of Onsted, Mich.; and Julie (Jason) Nickol and grandson, Brixton Nickol, of Benzonia, Mich.
Jan retired from a career in banking and mortgage lending in early 2000 to focus her attention on her passions related to her grandchildren, family, friends, travel and life on the lake. Her favorite times involved travels with Larry to Florida and family time with her children and grandchildren. Jan was also involved with her classmates from Rosary High School over the years which included planning a 50th class reunion.
