Obituary for Janet Lucille Belz

Worthington, MN

Janet Lucille Belz, age 73, passed away on January 11, 2017 at the Sunset Hospice Cottage in Worthington, MN. Jan was born on December 23, 1943 in Worthington to Thomas and Betty (Bolles) Jay. She graduated from Worthington Senior High School in 1961. Jan was married to Merle Belz on January 26, 1966 at the First Covenant Church in Worthington and they were able to share over 50 years of marriage together.
Jan loved life and was able to share her sparkling personality and contagious sense of humor with so many people over the years through her jobs at Campbell’s Soup, Farrington’s/Gordy’s Super Value, Red Owl, Worthington Sports Center, and Worthington Cable TV. Bel-zo Balloons was her claim to fame; she loved being able to bring smiles to other people’s faces whether it was as Bel-zo the Clown, Miss Piggy, or The Grim Reaper. She helped establish the downtown gift shop Poise ‘n’ Ivy in 1995 and was part owner until her retirement in 2010. Helping others find the perfect gift or treasure for their home brought her great delight.
She loved her church family and was heavily involved with the Night Light Circle along with being treasurer for the United Methodist Women. Her creativity and flair were valuable for church fundraisers. Jan enjoyed traveling and was able to visit multiple places in her retirement with her favorites being Graceland, Tupelo, and Glacier National Park. She was always ready for the next adventure to see what the world had to offer and meet new people.
She leaves behind her husband Merle, two sons, Todd and his wife Lori of Delano, MN, Scott and his wife Susan of Worthington, grandson Dalton and his wife Karlee of Jackson, MN, two brothers, three sisters, six nieces, and nine nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents and great grandson, Braiden John.
Visitation will be held on Friday, January 20, 2017, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., at the Benson Funeral Home in Worthington and also one hour prior to the service at the church. Memorial services will be held on Saturday, January 21, 2017, at 11:00 a.m., at the First United Methodist Church in Worthington, MN, with Rev. Dr. Daren Flinck officiating.
