Port Charlotte, FL - Jane E. (Rettinger) Platt, 88, of Port Charlotte, FL and formerly of Forked River, NJ, peacefully passed away on March 15, 2018 with her family by her side.

Jane was born in Barrington, NJ on August 26, 1929. She graduated from Haddon Heights High School, NJ and Trenton State College in Ewing Township, NJ where she earned her BA in Music Education. She married Charles (Pete) Platt on May 15, 1955 and shared 62 happy years until Pete's death in July of 2017.

Jane truly enjoyed spending time with her family above all else and making sure that everyone was happy and cared for. She loved to have the family together and doted on each family member. She lived a full life bursting at the seams with love and was a sweet and caring person who always had time for her family and friends.

Music was a central theme throughout Jane's life. It gave her great pleasure to touch the lives of so many people in her roles as elementary music school teacher, church organist (since she was 12 years old), church choir director, and bell choir leader.

Jane will be lovingly remembered by her daughter Kathleen Platt and spouse Leslie Nielsen of Punta Gorda FL, her granddaughter Brooke Madruga and husband Mike of Salisbury MD, her grandson Charles W. Platt III and wife Becca of Ocean View NJ; her great grandchildren Nathan, Kenzie, and Sadie Madruga and Charlie IV and Harper Platt; and extended family and friends.

Jane is preceded in death by her parents, William and Pauline (Hardgrove) Rettinger, her husband Charles W. (Pete) Sr. and her son Charles W. (Bill) Jr.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Tidewell Hospice; Philanthropy Department; 5955 Rand Boulevard, Sarasota, FL 34238.

A memorial service to celebrate Jane's life will be held on Sunday, April 8, 2018 at 2:00 PM at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, 367 U.S. 9, Waretown, NJ 08758.
