Jane L. Siegmund Obituary
Jane L. Siegmund, 78, passed away Sunday, Dec. 22, 2013, in Fort Worth, surrounded by loved ones. Funeral: 1:30 p.m. Thursday in Greenwood Funeral Home Chapel. Reception: Immediately following service at Greenwood Funeral Home. Jane was the third of four children born to Charles and Chloe Links in Gainesville. Jane excelled in school, graduating early from Gainesville High School and continuing her education at the University of Texas. After graduating from UT and teaching elementary school for approximately five years in Austin and Fort Worth, Jane began a long and rewarding career as a homemaker, volunteer and part-time sports therapist. She instilled the importance of academic excellence to her children. As a dedicated and tireless supporter of her children's athletic endeavors, she watched 1000's of basketball, football, volleyball and baseball games and tennis matches at the Pee Wee through collegiate levels. When not serving as chauffeur or running forgotten items to her children at school, she found time to volunteer with, and serve in leadership roles in, the Aledo Parent-Teacher Association, The Woman's Club of Fort Worth and the Tarrant County Bar (Wives) Association. She was past president of numerous clubs and departments within The Woman's Club, served as an advisor to Junior Woman's Club and served on the Historical Preservation Trust. Jane was also a member of the Order of the Eastern Star throughout her life. Jane married Martin Siegmund in 1953. After going through college as a married couple, they moved to Fort Worth before moving to Aledo in 1972. Since then, they have enjoyed all aspects of life in the country. Jane was an elegant woman who loved to dress up for social outings and radiated a regal beauty throughout her life. Though she was usually dressed to the nine's, she was also comfortable in, and could be found in, more casual clothes feeding a baby calf or other wildlife. Once her children were grown, she began a second career as a grandmother, finding incredible joy spending time with each of her grandchildren. She was a faithful Methodist and we are comforted that she has gone to be with the Father and other loved ones. She was preceded in death by her parents and two older sisters, Marjorie Williams and Billie Giles. Survivors: In addition to her husband of 60 years, she is survived by sons, Scott and wife, Melinda, and Mark and wife, Sue; daughters, Sharon, Susan and partner, Heather; grandchildren, Rachel, Harrison, Thomas, Colton and Sheridan; and brother, Charles L. Links Jr.
