Longtime Montgomery County resident Mary Jane Tanguy passed away over the Thanksgiving holiday at the age of 92. "Jane", as she preferred to be called, was born in Houston in 1925. She loved being a Texan and over her lifetime lived elsewhere yet always returned to the Lone Star State. She earned her college degree at Rice University with a major in French. Post-college, she was an office manager for a Texas oil wildcatter and an Arthur Murray ballroom dance instructor. Her primary occupation became that of a wife and mother, while remaining constantly active in the League of Women Voters, Houston Garden Clubs, Cub Scouts,Alliance Française de Houston and the local library. Later in life, she became a tremendous golf enthusiast and a very competitive bridge player in Montgomery County.

A Memorial Service will be held Sunday, December 3, at 2pm in the chapel at the Metcalf Funeral Home, off Highway 105 in Conroe. There will be a reception for friends and family immediately following the service.
