Jane Hanger

June 22, 2015

Jane Hanger passed away June 22, 2014 at Shell Point Retirement Center in Fort Myers, FL. Jane was born April 30, 1921 in Ft. Worth, Texas. She is preceded in death by her parents, Sam and Beulah Dillard and beloved, Robert Hanger. She is survived by her niece, Kay Horton and Kay's son, William Gifford. Her life is also celebrated by step-children, William and Nancy Hanger of Waterford, ME and their three daughters, Jessica, Kaitlin, and Lindsey; by Lisa and her husband Scott Fraley; by Woody Hanger and son Jordan; by step-niece, Mrs. Sally Stranahan of Ft. Myers.

Jane, a true Texan at heart, spent many hours of her young life training at the Trinity River in Ft. Worth preparing for the many swimming competitions that her father-coach and her University of Texas coach entered. She is honored and remembered at the university by the Jane Dillard and Tex Robertson Endowed Presidential Scholarship" for the benefit of the women's intercollegiate athletic sports programs.

While living in Fort Myers she was active in the Sanibel Island Conservation programs. She and Bob enjoyed the company of friends and family and could be easily identified by the ever present much loved dachschund, Precious. We loved her for her sense of humor, style, love of life and thoughtfulness.

She will be close to our hearts forever and greatly missed. Please visit www.harvey-engelhardt for online condolences.
