Jan Marie Bleggi passed away Sunday, October 23, 2022, at her home in Mapleton, Utah. She lived her last years in the same home she grew up in with her dear, forever-doting parents, John and Rea Bleggi.
Jan was an only child, adored and loved unceasingly by her parents and a large extended family. Her cousins were her sisters and brothers; her aunts and uncles treated her as their own. Related by blood or not, her big fat crazy Italian family meant everything to her.
She was also blessed with a beautiful, loyal, ever-loving group of girlfriends who were patient and kind forever and always. Through high school, marriage, children, and beyond, they remained close and were a constant source of sisterly love and support.
As if all of those people weren’t enough to light up her life, Jan was also loved, and looked after by her “family” on 1200 N. As a child, and even into adulthood, she was never without help or care when she needed it, and for that she was immensely grateful.
Jan’s pride and joy were undoubtedly her children and grandchildren. During good times and bad, through dark and light, her love for them was always there, and always understood. She never missed an opportunity to talk about one of their accomplishments, or let others know how proud she was to call them hers.
Jan is survived by her five children: Mindy (Ryan) Christensen, Carly (Justin) Leslie, Brady (Kimberly) Hitchcock, Tawny Hitchcock, and Sadey (Brett) Lee. She is also survived by eight grandchildren and her soon-to-be ninth: Chloe, Adyson, Piper, Maximus, Lucy, Cassius, Jagger, Violet, and Baby Boy Hitchcock. She was preceded in death by her parents, John and Rea Bleggi.
Services will be held Monday, October 31, at the Mapleton LDS Church at 1580 N Main. Visitation and viewing will take place from 11:00-12:45, with funeral services immediately following. There will be no graveside service. Per Jan’s request, she will be cremated and laid to rest alongside her parents at the Spanish Fork Cemetery.
Jan’s children would like to express their love and most sincere appreciation for all of the kindness and support shown to her, and to all of us, throughout the years. It has been constant and unconditional, and we will be forever grateful.
