The Blackfoot people will forever be in your debt for the work you and your husband did among them in the 1930s. The information you gathered is still being used today.

Jane was an interesting and interested lady that I had the pleasure of knowing, she and her accomplishments give me very fond memories. May God bless Nick and grandchildren as well as Jean for her good care. We were saddened to hear about your loss and relish the many cherished Memories and concerts.

Every child should grow up in a neighborhood with Mrs. Hanks. I had the good fortune to live on "The Lane", and spent many happy times in her company. She was the busiest woman I had ever known, but she always had time for me. She brought out the best in everyone, and also helped us to find our best. I spent many happy hours at the Hanks home, and she made me feel as though I was a skilled violinist and that being followed around by a little girl was just what she wanted. She could often be found with us kids in tow, playing baseball at the Hanks field, picking wildflowers in the meadows or even playing hide and seek in their wonderful home. Mr. and Mrs. Hanks made Halloween a most wonderful & frightening experience and they would visit everyone on the Lane every Christmas. I still remember the summer nights when she would load the car and take us all to Hathaway's for a movie and wonderful evening. She held one of most special roles in my happy childhood memories, and I was always grateful to grow up in her neighborhood. She celebrated my graduations and wedding, and then would watch for me and my children as we came home to the Lane to visit my folks. I am happy that my kids had the pleasure of knowing her. As an adult, I grew to realize and appreciate all that she and Mr. Hanks had done for North Bennington, and the world. She was an accomplished and giving woman, always with a smile and the ability to make you feel that you were special. Whoever coined the phrase "to know her is to love her" must have been speaking of Mrs. Hanks. The world was a better place with her in it, and she will be missed. Thanks, Nick, for sharing your Mom with all of us on the Lane...you, and she, are in my thoughts and prayers. I will always remember her, with love and great appreciation.
