In high school, she excelled in basketball and was named to the All-Conference Team her senior year. She attended Southwestern University in Weatherford, OK where she was named College Campus Beauty. Jan and Floyd were introduced to each other when Jan was a sophomore in high school. Floyd was an Altus boy, and a football standout. Floyd attended Northwestern in Alva, OK for two years before heading to Southwestern to meet up with Jan. Floyd proposed and they married on February 1, 1958 in Olustee, OK. Throughout the years Jan and Floyd resided in Olustee, Hobbs, New Mexico, and Altus. In February of 1961 Kastner's Radiator Shop was established. Jan was the secretary, parts runner, and bookkeeper for the business until 2016. Jan also helped a couple of young men establish their A&A Nursery Business. She was the glue that held the business together and had lots of fun at the same time. Jan excelled at providing a great balance of work and home lifestyle for her family. Jan has been a longtime member of First United Methodist Church in Altus, OK and she stayed active in numerous PTO's, Mother's Club, and the Apache Pass Social Group.

Jan and Floyd loved going to Las Vegas, road tripping/Casino hopping with friends, and family vacations to Galveston, Corpus Christi, and Possum Kingdom. Of course, she loved the Lake, her second home. She and Floyd would work tirelessly getting the Lake Cabin ready for summer fun, along with many Happy Hours to come. When the grandkids and even great grandkids came along, Jan was willing and able to attend, cheer for, and support their numerous activities... She was always their biggest fan!
