Jane was born September 12, 1960 in the Baxley Clinic near Blakely, GA to L.Z. and Evelyn Phillips. She graduated from Early County High School in 1978 and nursing school in 1981. The last 31 years of her career she was the Practice Administrator at Tallahassee Pediatrics. She retired in 2017 due to complications of her disease after a 40 year career in healthcare. Jane loved and cared deeply for her many patients over the decades.

Jane is survived by her husband of 37 years Bob Bass, one son Christopher Bass, and two grandchildren, Madison Marie Bass, and Zachary Robert Bass of Tallahassee. She is also survived by two sisters Cindy Weaver (David); Gwen Tyner (Stan); one brother Les Phillips (Sheryl) of Early and Seminole Counties, GA. She is also survived by a special mother-in-law, Dot Bass. The family wants to extend a special thank you to her caregiver, Dovie Ross for the comfort and care she provided. The family also wants to extend a thank you to the staff at TMH Neuro Rehab for the special care they provided. She was preceded in death by her mother, father, father-in-law, David Bass, and brother-in-law, Brad Bass.

Jane enjoyed caring for others, fishing, camping, trips to the beach, and spending time with her grandchildren. She also enjoyed Rock Steady Boxing at Sweat Therapy Fitness, which keeps people with Parkinson's Disease moving.

Our hearts are so sad. What a beautiful treasure Jane was on this earth. We would always pray before we took the girls into Tallahassee Ped’s that we would get to see Nurse Jane! I think she helped the parents as much as the babies! Bob, you have been an inspiration to observe over the years. Your devotion to the love of your life has been amazing. We can only hope to love so well. Christopher, we know whatever the circumstances you’re never ready to lose a parent. We are holding you close in our thoughts and prayers. Love to all.

Dear Bob and family,

My heart and prayers are with you during this time. My heart broke to hear the news of Jane's passing. During my time of volunteering at Rock Steady I was amazed by the undeniable love and supportive bond that you two shared. Jane was strong, caring, and loving even in her suffering. I know she is in a better place, looking down on you all with love. I am so thankful for the opportunity I had to meet y'all. Stay strong, I will be thinking of you all. God bless, Brooke.

Bob, Christopher, Dot and babies, My heart and prayers are with all of you. Life can be so hard but love is forever. Jane was simply amazing. And I’m so glad I was blessed to meet her. She was surrounded in love by all of you. Y’all all fought together. I don’t know of a better definition of love than that. Your hearts are so broken but I promise God will carry all of you. It’s ok to feel broken or angry. God will see us through. Jane is in the spirit world and we are in the flesh. She is at peace now and understands more than we do. I know she loves her family more than words can say. God bless all of you and know God will keep his mighty hand of comfort on y’all always. I’m so sorry for all of your pain. But true love never dies. God bless, Kim

Bob, I knew whomever you picked to be your wife would be an angel. I was right. When Kim and i met Jane, we fell in love. She was funny, strong, loving, caring, and i was blessed to have many conversations with her. She loved her family above all else. She sent me pictures of Madison and Zachary all the time. She fought a terrible disease but she would never let you know it. She was amazing. i want to tell you that as a husband you too, are amazing! The love you showed your wife in the worst of times, was your best. I knew you would be that kind of man, all of my life. David and Brad would be so proud of you, and i know Christopher is just like you! You blessed Jane's life, and she yours. Christopher was her world and the grand babies were the lights of her life. She accepted Kim and i like we'd always been a part of the family. I loved her for that. She had a beautiful heart. Kim and i are so sorry for your loss, and will be here for you, Mom, Christopher, whenever you need us. We love you, and always have and always will. Kathy and Kim

I have to tell you what an inspiration Bob and Jane was to us. Watching you both at Rock Steady Boxing was a special gift you gave to me and Hollis. Such hope and loving care you shared with all of us for each other. It made my heart skip a beat. Jane was a fighter who was
to show use how strength and being goal oriented was important to fighting this disease. Our sincere condolences to all of you. We will miss you both as part of the family at Rock Steady Boxing.

We are so sorry to hear about Jane. We always rooted for you both at boxing. How hard Jane tried in class and how patient you were. I first met Jane at Tallahassee Pediatrics and she was wonderful with my daughter. We really enjoyed being able to reconnect her with and meeting you at boxing class. Jane really was very brave during her illness. We wish you and your family peace during this sad time. We will miss seeing both of you. Our condolences, Fran & Lisa.
