Jane Morton Britton


Jane Morton Britton died peacefully at her home on Tuesday, January 29, 2013.

She was born on May 11, 1929 in New Bern, North Carolina to John Wesley Morton and Ethel Williams Morton. In addition to her parents, Jane was preceded in death by her husband of 56 years, Lt. Col. (Ret.) Richard "Dick" H. Britton, her son, Richard H. Britton, Jr., her brother, John "Jack" W. Morton, Jr, and her granddaughter, Emily Saulnier.

She is survived by her sister, Penelope M. Bender of Pollocksville, NC; four children, Robert W. Britton of Greenville, SC; David C. Britton of the home; Suzanne B. Waterfield and husband Rob of Raleigh, NC; and Penelope B. Saulnier and husband Ron of Simpsonville, SC; grandchildren Carmen White; Robert Britton, Jr.; Virginia Saulnier; Sarah Saulnier; Beth W.

She will be missed by her many nieces and nephews whom she loved dearly as well.

Jane was well educated at Stratford College and Meredith College. She was one of the first women to attend classes at Texas A&M back in the 1950s. She utilized her education to support her military husband and rear her five children.

Jane was generous beyond measure, and kind to all; her loved ones will feel her absence sorely.
