Jane O'Connor (nee Powers), 86, long time resident of Glenview, passed away peacefully on September 5, 2020. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of almost 62 years, Joseph S. O'Connor, M.D. She was a loving wife, homemaker, and mother of 6 children: Karen (Dennis) Kolb, Mark, Susan, Lynn (Troy) Gooding, Kathleen (Michael Uhran) and Brian (Sue Terwilliger) O'Connor.

Jane was the beloved daughter of the late Raymond & Mary (Flynn) Powers; dear sister of Dr. John Powers and the late Mark Powers. She was a graduate of Mundelein College in Chicago. Jane was completely devoted to her family and was adored by all. She welcomed all to her home, her table and her pool. She loved nothing more than a big family party where she would lovingly prepare food for all. With her great sense of humor, she kept us all entertained until the end. She was an amazing example of hard work, perseverance, and incredible faith. We are all better for the blessing of having shared in her life. She will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts.
