Obituary of Jan Chatelain

Jan Chatelain, 75, of Indian Harbour Beach, died Wednesday, October 05, 2022, at Kindred Hospital in Melbourne, FL.

She was born November 5, 1946 in Houston, Tx. She moved to Indian Harbour Beach, Fl in 1978 and lived in the same house until the day she passed.

She was in a foster home until the age of 8, when she and her brother, Joe who predeceased her in death, was adopted by her mother, Elsie (Langston) Wherry and father, William Wherry.

Surviving is her devoted daughter, Michelle Chatelain-Nunn of Indian Harbour Beach, FL and her son, Michael Chatelain of Iowa; her three granddaughters Taylor Robertson, Hailey Nunn, and  Addaleigh Chatelain;  her grandson, Gabriel Chatelain, her great granddaughters Charleigh, Kenzie, Emerie, and Sadie Ann; nephew Jay Wherry and wife Amanda Wherry with their twins Cade and Conner.; her sister, Sandee Potier and nephew Michael Potier; and her two very best friends Gina Davis and Lori Haines.

Jan had been sick for almost 8 years.  Before she was sick Jan enjoyed dancing, traveling, going on cruises, and gambling in casinos. Having fun was her greatest joy; she was always the life of the party.  Being sick didn’t stop her either; she still had fun; she enjoyed playing cards at least once a week. and drinking wine outside with the community.  She loved sitting at home with family watching football and the Triple Crown. She loved Jeopardy and one of her biggest pastimes was watching NCIS with her daughter. Jan always stayed active and positive. She made you laugh even when she was in pain; that was the type of person Jan was. She will be missed dearly.
