Jane H. Proud Obituary
Jane H. Proud

AGE: 89 • Lewes, DE

The deeply loved Jane H. Proud, 89 of Lewes, DE formerly of Claymont, DE was reunited in heaven with her beloved Charlie on October 4, 2016. Jane was married to Charlie for 61 years before his passing in 2008.

Everyone who knew Jane considered her both very kind and very sweet. She was an incredibly devoted mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, talented in sewing and cooking, a tireless volunteer, choir member, teacher's aide for intellectually challenged children and a 20-year Delaware Hospice volunteer. A faithful servant of the Lord, Jane was an active member of the Parish of All Saints' Church & St. George's Chapel, Rehoboth and before that, Church of the Ascension, Claymont. She had many ministries at both churches; in her later years music was her true and fervent ministry.

Jane is survived by the four lights of her life, sons Charles, "Chip" Proud, Jr. (Laurie) and Todd Proud (Megan) and daughters Christine Bubley (Michael) and Nancy Freebery (Rick) and grandchildren Brent (Stephanie), Brad, Jennifer, Travis, Matt, Scott (Cori), Sara (Jason), Michele (Gary), Elisa (Bryan), Aaron (Blair), Alison (Shaun), TJ (Erin) and Ricky (Jenny) and 15 great-grandchildren and two brothers Sam (Karen) and Jan (Elinor).

A celebration of Jane's life will be on Saturday, October 15, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. at St. George's Chapel, 20274 Beaver Dam Road at Route 23, Harbeson, DE 19951. Friends may visit with the family at the Chapel beginning at 10:00 a.m.
