Jane E. Lenihan Obituary
Jane E. Lenihan, 96, born August 24, 1922, in New London, Connecticut, passed away on September 9, 2018. Jane was the dedicated daughter of Natale C. and Rose Muni Emanuel. She was the widow of John H. Lenihan and was predeceased by brothers Michael A. and Peter V. Emanuel.

Janie is survived and will be deeply missed by her son Ralph M. Lenihan of Westerly, RI; three grandchildren, Chad C. Lenihan (Stephanie) of Charlestown, RI, Christine Lenihan Townsend (Jonathan) of North Stonington, CT, and Annette Lenihan of Henderson, Nevada; and four great-grandchildren, Riley, Ethan & Adam Lenihan and Tessa Townsend.

After graduating Westerly High School in 1940, Jane attended the University of Rhode Island. For nearly 40 years, Jane served as a buyer and salesperson for the McCormick's Department Store and later worked at Bea Smith's.

An avid member of the Daughter's of Isabella and the Red Hat Society. Her love of orchids and an innocent obsession with Whitman Sampler Chocolates made any day infinitely sweeter. A life well lived was sprinkled with travel, including stops in Bermuda, the Carribean, Italy and The United Kingdom.

Services will be private. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in her name to the Hope Hospice of RI. Website www.HopeHealthcare.org.
