Tribute to Jan Turner


We are saddened to announce that our Southwestern Payroll family has lost one of our beloved members. Jan Turner, our Support Specialist, passed away at the end of November.

Jan joined our Southwestern Payroll team in June of 2014. An extrovert and a people person, Jan was a natural fit in our support department. She quickly built a rapport with her clients and became a core member of our team. Her care and concern went beyond the day to day of her job. She learned about her clients outside of their payroll needs and checked on them. As her co-workers, we were quick to receive both her humor and her stellar hugs. She was there for us when we hit a rough moment and she always seemed to know when we needed an encouraging word. 

Jan was a force of nature and we will always be grateful that she made her way from California to our Oklahoma office. We will miss the sound of her voice carrying down the hallways, the way her face lit up when she saw you, and most of all, her incredibly infectious laugh. Our thoughts are with her sons, granddaughter, brother, and all her friends and extended family. Our world is a lot quieter and a little less bright without her here, but we know she is laughing and dancing with her Bill now. Until we meet again.
