In Memory of Janet Watkins Masoner
May 20, 1934 – March 19, 2018

We are sad to report that DWPC member Jan Masoner has passed away.  A member since 2013, Jan was a joyful addition to the club and enjoyed hobnobbing with friends at events.  She was a freelance writer, and regular contributor to the North American Welsh Newspaper (NINNAU –  Papur Cymry Gogledd America.)  Jan and her husband were instrumental in saving the historic Welsh Presbyterian Church in Los Angeles, built in 1909, which is also the oldest remaining synagogue building in Los Angeles.

Janet’s granddaughter Katy Anderson said, “She so loved going to press club events and mingling with all of the wonderful women there. Her family would like to list the Denver Women’s Press Club as a nonprofit to donate to in memory.”
