Jan Delle Watkins Puckett, 71, of Teague, passed away on April 30, 2024, at 11:50 p.m. at Baylor Scott & White in Temple after a long battle with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH).

Jan was born July 5, 1952, and grew up in Wichita Falls,. That is where she met the love of her life, Tommy, whose big sister lived next door to her parents.

They married Nov. 25, 1971, and she supported Tommy as he pursued his electrical engineering degree from Texas Tech University.

She took classes at Midwestern University that allowed her to be an outstanding secretary, but her passion was raising her two kids and volunteering at the church.

Jan spent many years as a member of the United Methodist Church women’s group, running the kitchen for covered dish dinners and funeral luncheons, supported youth group, and vacation bible school. She also was a member of Eastern Star and was proud that her dad was a Mason.

Her hobbies were sewing, cooking/baking, taking care of their many animals and solving world problems on the front porch swing.

Jan was known for her love of the color “red” and red sports cars, her quick wit and those huge grins she gave everyone. She was always the “cool” mom.

The family wishes to express gratitude to the caring staff at Baylor Scott and White in Temple with special thanks to Dr. Peter Yau.

She is preceded in death by her parents William “Keith” Watkins and Althea McDonald.

She is survived by her husband Thomas “Tommy” Franklin Puckett, Son Douglas Brent Puckett and wife Amanda, Daughter Trisha Michelle Thomas and husband Cliff, grandsons Mace, Cody, Caden, Luke, Jack, and granddaughter Claire.

Donations to the Shriners Children’s Hospital, Methodist Home in Waco, or Stewart Memorial United Methodist Church in Buffalo to the women’s group, in Jan’s name, are suggested in lieu of flowers.
