Jane France Obituary
Jane Elizabeth France Jul. 2, 1961 ~ Dec. 6, 2013 Resident of Lafayette, CA Jane slipped away on Friday, December 6 at the age of 52 after an eight year battle with cancer. Born in Marin County, California to parents Richard and Norma France, Jane had a varied school life that took her from San Jose to Illinois, Japan, Hong Kong, New Jersey, England, and finally back to California, where she graduated from Los Gatos High School. Jane continued her education at the University of California at Berkeley Business School. After receiving her degree, Jane began her career in Macy's Management Training, and then took to the skies as a flight attendant with American Trans Air and United Airlines. In the early 2000s, she landed as an Associate Account Manager at Kaiser Permanente and joined the WomenSing women's chorus. Jane was very passionate about music, and her love of travel took her on many trips with friends and family throughout her life. She will be remembered fondly for her wry sense of humor, deadpan wit and remarkable strength and determination. Jane is survived by her mother Norma, brothers James and Phillip (wife Debra), sister Carol (husband Greg), nieces Jasmine and Casey, and nephews Christopher, Jason and Jordan (wife Crystal). There will be a celebration of her life at 1pm on December 20 at the Lafayette-Orinda Presbyterian Church. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her name to WomenSing Scholarship Fund, P.O. Box 2014, Orinda CA 94563 or the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation.
