Jan Orndorff passed away on 7 July 2016 after a lengthy struggle against pulmonary fibrosis, which was diagnosed in 2002. In 2011, she underwent a lung transplant, but after an initial success she lost the battle against rejection, and particularly as a result of the medication used. Jan was very active in raising awareness of the condition, a founding member of the Pulmonary Fibrosis Association. She leaves a widower, John, three children, 6 grandchildren and a huge legacy in terms of her efforts for PF sufferers.
