Janice M. Duncan, age 71 of Austin, Minnesota, died Monday, November 3, 2014 at Stacyville Community Nursing Home in Stacyville, Iowa.  Janice was born November 11, 1942 in Austin, Minnesota to Andrew and Hilda (Rudlong) Haugland.  She attended Austin High School, and then began her working career with American Can in Austin, and later Hormel. Jan was united in marriage to Gary Duncan, and they later divorced.  After years away from Austin, she returned home and worked with her sister Rochelle in real estate with Century 21. Jan had a passion for many things in her life.  Her interests included flowers, baking, gardening, crocheting afghans, quilting, and painting.  She was a longtime member of the Austin Fraternal Order of Eagles Auxiliary Aerie # 703, enjoyed an occasional trip to the casino, and loved dining out with her friends and family.  Jan’s family would like to thank Habitat for Humanity for painting her home in Austin and the Austin Kiwanis Club for providing the paint, and friends at St. Olaf Church in Austin for their gift of a special prayer shawl.  Special acknowledgement to the Stacyville Community Nursing Home for their compassion in caring for Jan, as well as many other area care providers that assisted her along the way.

Jan is survived by her children Mark (Margo) Sampsell and Candice Sampsell Kieran; sisters Rochelle Jensen and Patti Page (Jeff Bendickson); grandchildren Elizabeth Sampsell and friend Ryan Ennis, Bobby Olson, and Samantha Sampsell; step-sisters Florence Maloney and Marlys Farris; sisters-in-law Elvina Haugland Solomonson and Elsie Haugland; many adored nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews.  She was preceded in death by her  parents Andrew Haugland and Hilda Rudlong Haugland Page; brothers Donald (Blanche) Haugland, Floyd Haugland, Albert (Valerie) Haugland, Sherman Haugland, and Harry Page Jr.;  step father Harry Page, Sr.; stepmother Clara Haugland; step-brothers Robert Bray and Beryle Bray; brother-in-law Frank Jensen.

Memorial services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, November 8, 2014 at the Worlein Funeral Home Chapel in Austin.  Jan’s family will greet friends on Saturday morning for one hour prior to services, at the funeral home.  Memorials can be directed to Jan’s family.
