In loving memory of Jan Prather who peacefully passed away early Saturday morning in her home.  She went to join her husband Hank Prather who had passed just a year ago. She grew up in Modesto and lived most of her life in the area.  She had worked at Payless Market in Lockeford for several years.  She started as a cashier where people would stand in long lines just to see her.  She became the head of the bakery department there where she loved to bake.  She is survived by her brother Jeff Cravens in Modesto, her sister Joy Castillo in Manteca, her son Sean Prather who had been with her taking care of her to the very end, her daughter Luzanne Shapley in Turlock, her grandson Brandon Greer in Turlock and granddaughter Tiffany Smith in Oklahoma City, and several nieces and nephews.  She loved the mountain, her family, and her pets who were like children to her.  She was the kindest lady and will be greatly missed by everyone that knew her.  Everyone is welcome to bring your memories, stories, and love of Jan to the Moose Lodge in Turlock at 4713 West Main Street on September 27th from noon to 2 pm.
