Jan Ferguson
Warrenton resident
Janet “Jan” Kay (Simonsen)
Ferguson died peacefully at
her home on Jan. 22 after a
short battle with cancer.
Jan was born in Astoria and
entered the world on May 5,
1952. She was the second child
of Howard and Colleen Simon-
She grew up in Hammond
and spent most of her life in
area. She was a graduate of
Warrenton High School, the
Class of 1969. She gave birth
in Astoria to her son, Jonathon
W. Brown, in October 1972.
She met her husband, Terry
Ferguson, in 1980. In 1984 she
ventured to California and Ari-
zona for several years pursuing
Terry’s construction work, but
they soon found themselves
returning to the area she called
home. Jan’s family has lived in
Clatsop County for many gen-
erations. She always loved the
area, even the wind and rain.
Jan and Terry had many
adventures. They traveled of-
ten and it was rare that they
weren’t off on some adventure
over the weekend in their RV.
At home, she had many hob-
She was a talented artist with
her drawings, quilting, beauti-
ful cross-stitching, baking and
cooking. Her family is going
to miss her cinnamon rolls,
cranberry sauce, cheesecakes,
macaroni and potato salads,
and the dinner rolls that she
brought to each holiday meal.
Many of her favorite activ-
ities included animals: dogs,
cats, horses, birds and even
raccoons. She was always look-
ing to help when an animal
was in need. For many years,
Jan and Terry cared for sev-
eral horses that were rescued
from an abusive owner. She
was mom to many Old English
Over the last few years, she
could be found traveling the
west coast and attending dog
shows with her three Old En-
glish Sheepdogs from the
SnowDowne line. Two of her
dogs became Grand Champi-
ons and one pup barely missed
going to the Westminster Dog
She had many memorable
jobs throughout her life that
provided her with a plethora
of stories to share with others.
Her tales of bartending, dog
grooming, bookkeeping, and
brownie baking were always
entertaining. The job she en-
joyed the most was working
for Clatsop County ESD. She
looked forward to helping the
students and getting ready for
the Clatsop County Fair.
Jan made friends wherever
she went, her smile and friend-
liness were what attracted oth-
ers to her. She openly shared
her help and knowledge with
anyone about a multitude of
topics, including, baking ideas/
advice, travel, crafts, and any-
thing animal related. She was
on the park committee that es-
tablished the Warrenton Dog
Park. She was always excited
to experience a new local shop
or restaurant.
Jan was preceded in death
her father, Howard Simon-
sen (2004), and her mother,
Colleen Simonsen (2017). Her
brother, Robert “Robbie” Si-
monsen (1994), was lost while
skippering a crab boat in the
Gulf of Alaska. She will be for-
ever missed by her husband,
Terry Ferguson of Warrenton,
her son and his wife, Jonathon
and Laura Brown of Astoria,
and her pups Dozer, Winnie,
and Piper.
She is also survived by her
brother, Mark Simonsen of
Hammond, nieces, nephews,
and many cousins.
The family would like to
thank the OHSU-CMH Knight
Cancer Center and CMH Hos-
pital staff for the care they pro-
