Condolences

My deepest sympathies to the Richardson family. I’ve only known Jane for 3 years since becoming a member of our quilt guild and sharing lunch with her smiles during our neighborhood “Lunch Bunch”! She was so sweet , always smiling despite her health struggles. I admired her sewing talent and her strength to keep moving on. Now she has moved on to the Lord and is together again with her husband.

I’m so sorry to hear of your mom’s and grandma’s passing. She was a treasure. We had great times together sewing and working on various quilt guild committees. She was tough and a survivor. I will miss her. I’m sorry I won’t be able to attend her memorial service.

My deepest sympathies to Janes family. I was deeply saddened to hear of her passing. I met Jane through Wayne County Choral Union many years ago and she continued to serve the Chorus in many ways. When it was decided we needed a second look in costumes she said no problem we’ll make vests to go over our shirts. Make vests she did. While a few volunteers helped with the process she was the driving force for the project. When things needed done she always volunteered. She was a doer and so admired We have all lost such a talented,caring,sweet friend. She will be missed by all who knew her but not forgotten.
