  • I had to good fortune to meet Jan the first day I interviewed for a position in the Behavioral Health Department at the Chelsea Health Center over 20 years ago. Once hired Jan was one of the first persons to invite me out to lunch, and we did so on more than a few occasions. We both shared a love for cats and would often swap cat stores. She would bring in little treats for my cat. Jan had a great sense of humor in a self effacing manner. She was very kind, caring, loyal, and committed to her mission to help others. She will be surely missed but not forgotten.

  • I had the pleasure of knowing Jan about 20 years ago at the Chelsea MGH. She was kind and generous, somebody who could light up a room with her sense of humor
    warmth and personality. Jan excelled with talent, ease, grace and humility. Nobody did it better. Her memory will eternally stay with me. Rest In Peace Jan.

  • i give thanks for the life of Jan LaBombard. She was a brilliant manager.mentr and friend. Memories will be with me always. May she rest in peace.

  • I had the pleasure of growing up with Ted, nephew of Jeanette, and my parents were friends of Ted’s parents. I never met Jeanette, but I extend my condolences to Ted on the loss of his aunt. Ted, my maiden name is Poirier and you and I used to play together when we were 4 years old! Again, I’m sorry for your loss, and I wish you good health and safety during this health crisis.
