Jane M. Fogel, age 92, passed away April 13, 2013 just three months after the death of her husband of 70 years. She was born in Buffalo, New York in 1920, the only child of Hattie and Nathan Serns. She remained in Buffalo and attended the University of Buffalo, graduating with a degree in Business Education. There she met Harold Fogel whom she married in 1943 before he shipped overseas to serve in the Army. After the war, Jane and Harold settled back in Buffalo where they raised two children, Jeffrey and Inez. An active member of Temple Beth Zion, Sisterhood and Hadassah, her real focus in life was to be a full time wife and mother, which she later called "the luxury of the 1960s." They retired to North Palm Beach in 1978 and enjoyed the beach, bridge, an amazing circle of friends and later, the arrival of their adored grandchildren whom they actively helped to raise. She survived two bouts of breast cancer, separated by almost 40 years, two heart surgeries and 30 years on Insulin. She was a powerhouse, survived by her devoted daughter Inez Fogel Heery and son-in-law Michael, her son Jeffrey and his wife Miki, and the loves of her and Harold's life, grandchildren Rachel and Adam. She was laid to rest by her husband's side at Star of David following a private family service. Donations in memory of Jane Fogel can be made to Jewish Family Services or Hospice of Palm Beach County.
