Douglas Taylor for his presence and support at her bedside. Mary Jane will always be remembered as a woman of strength, courage and faithfulness to her family. Her children and grandchild were her life. Illness and her challenges in life never brought her down. She was determined to conquer these challenges and rise above them. Anyone who knew Mary Jane knew she loved her sweets, her soaps and the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley. She will be greatly missed but her humor, beautiful smile and hearty laugh will never be forgotten. Our memories will never fade and her love will always be present in our hearts.
