Jane was one of the most beautiful people I have ever known -- not only in looks with her beautiful blue twinkling eyes but also her nature. She made my wedding reception at WCC perfect and helped me with just the right outfit at Beulah Bechtel's and jewelry at White's. Even more, she always had a hug for you when you ran into her out and about. This world was a better place having her in it and she showed many of us how to live our lives with grace, love and dignity. Heaven has a new bright star in it today. Sending prayers to the family.

Jim I am sorry to hear of your mother passing. God Bless your family.John and Ronda

So sorry to hear of your Mothers passing. Such a pretty, hard working lady.

Aunt Jane was such a wonderful lady, so full of life. I enjoyed talking with her when I was home for my 50th Class Reunion and couldn't believe then how good she was doing and she looked wonderful; much younger than her years. Punky, you and your family have my deepest sympathy. May God Bless . . .

Sandy, you,Ray and family have my deepest sympathy, I didn't know your mom but I think we did see her down at White Jeweler's, we thought she was very nice!

My condolences to your family. Living 96 years is a long time. But may you look forward to the resurrection promised in the? Then you can be reunited with her when there is no more sickness and death. (Acts 24:15; Revelation 21:4)

Please accept my condolences on the loss of this special lady! God comfort you at this time.....

I worked with Jane at the jewelry store. What a lovely lady. My husband Doug and I considered her our friend. She will be missed.

Please accept my sincere my sincere condolences. May you find comfort in warm memories and coming promises. Revelation 21,3.4

Sandy: I tried unsuccessfully (and so did the funeral home) to have my note to you forwarded. My biggest association with Jane was at the Country Club where she had a
pleasant formal, but friendly, style of managing and she was so easy to work with planning for any special events. Then I found her at Beulah's where she gave excellent, non-pushy, help. My husband fortunately found her at White's! I hope some wonderful memories of your life with your mother will keep you company in the years ahead. You have Bob's and my sympathy.
