Jan Denise Houston, affectionately known by her immediately family as “Nise”, was born on March 24, 1954, in Columbus, Ohio. She grew up on the north side of Columbus and attended Linmoor Jr. High and Linden McKinley High Schools.

After high school, Nise worked in the customer relations field until she began a career with the State of Ohio, retiring from the Department of Job and Family Services in 2016 with more than 28 years of service. Nise demonstrated her love and affection while spending time with her family and friends. She enjoyed watching television (especially westerns and old movies), and she enjoyed going to the beach. She also loved traveling to Cincinnati with her sisters to spend the holidays with her sons and grandchildren.

Nise passed away on Thursday, July 23, 2020 at her residence, surrounded by her family. She accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior before she passed. Nise is preceded in death by her parents and grandparents, and she leaves to celebrate her life and cherish her memory, her sons, Donald and Dwayne (Natalie) Houston; sisters, Debbie, Cynthia and Jeretta Fain, Lisa Bynum, and Tammy (Andy) McKnight; aunts, Mary E. Waldon and Barbara L. Wilson; 18 grandchildren; 29 great-grandchildren; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Lisa and family, it was a shock to hear that Jan had passed away. Jan was one of a kind worked with her at ODJFS, definitely left some memories. My prayer for the family is to rely on one another during this difficult time. Pray together for peace and strength and to remember the sweet memories you all have shared over the years. Even in your own grief lift each other up as you lay your loved one to rest. Lord cover this family with your Grace and Mercy, bless them as only you can. God Bless

Aunt Nisey –
I received the birthday card you sent to me on the same day you left our physical world. It was a bittersweet moment that I will cherish until we meet again. I love you.

Mom, Aunties, and Cousins –
I can not express the sadness I have for you all during this time. Aunt Nisey was a firecracker and the life of the party; even when there wasn’t supposed to be a party. She always seemed to have a smile on her face. I will cherish all the memories of her and us. I take comfort in knowing she is in a better place. I love you all!

Condolence from JoVone Houpe on August 3rd, 2020 11:58 pm

Aunt Nisey! I can see your smile and hear your laugh RIGHT NOW! You know we stayed laughing even when it was inappropriate! The last time I saw you we randomly ran into each other at the gas station, and you were so upset about your garage “falling” down on the hood of your car…we were even laughing about that…U also told me about Rabbit passing away…we cried and also laughed about the good times. I can see you right now talking about, “Oh JoVone, honey you so sweet!” Lol. You always told me that, and I knew you meant it. Each and every single time we were around each other we would do nothing but LAUGH! I will miss you, your smile, and your overall uplifting spirit! May you Rest In Peace Gorgeous… I love you!…Oh yea, in memory of you: Tomorrow, I will find a way to dig deep down and LAUGH, like We ALWAYS do when we’re together! ❤️
