Text size

Winslow - Janis Ann Halloran-Dahl, 67, died unexpectedly on Monday, January 22, 2018, at MaineGeneral Medical Center in Augusta. She was born on June 13, 1950, in Grand Rapids, Michigan, the daughter of Mary (Rudnik) and Joseph Weronko. She graduated from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan, with a degree in Fine Arts.
Making her way east with her first husband, Matthew Halloran, she worked for the State of Maine Department of Human Services focusing on Elder Care. She was known as an expert researcher and lecturer on the subject and was invited to various places throughout the Country to speak on being a care giver and the resources needed to be successful in providing this specialized care.
Jan enjoyed traveling, hiking, cross-country skiing, tending to her flower and vegetable garden or mowing over two acres of lawn; she simply liked being out and about. In quieter moments, Jan enjoyed reading novels and cultivating her faith life. She was also a great supporter of animal rights.
She will be remembered for her outgoing friendliness, her fashion sense, appreciating a bargain and being true to who she was - a lovable, affable, kind and thoughtful woman who was just a nice person. It is not hard to imagine how much she will be missed.
Jan is survived by her husband, Dr. Bernhoff "Bernie" Dahl, MD of Winslow and Winterport; as well as her father, Joseph Weronko of Grand Rapids, Michigan. She was predeceased by her husband, Matthew, her mother, Mary, and her brother, Richard Weronko.
A Mass of Christian Burial was celebrated on Friday, January 26, 2018, at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Winslow. A reception followed at the Notre Dame Catholic Church Hall in Waterville. Burial will be in May, along with her first husband Matthew, at the Maine Veterans' Memorial Cemetery in Augusta.
