She was 92; preceded in death by husband Louis James Paquette, M.D. on Feb. 5, 2000. Born in International Falls, Minnesota, raised in Fort Francis Ontario Canada, Jane Paquette (nee Tiefenbacher) enjoyed throughout her high school years the outdoor life of the Rainey Lake area on her parents' summer island, and the snowy fun of skating and curling on the frozen lake in town.

Jane enjoyed life. She had the opportunity to travel with her husband to Europe, the Caribbean and Central America. Her passion was her family, friends, and the outdoors. Even in her later years she enjoyed hiking, kayaking and canoeing on visits to northern Wisconsin. An active sports enthusiast, Jane participated in badminton, golf and tennis tournaments, staying fit throughout her years.
