Jane spent 16 years in banking in Menomonee Falls. Upon her retirement, she and Jim moved to their "Shangri-la" on Pine Lake in Waushara County. The lake home has been in the family for over 65 years. There, she enjoyed swimming, gardening, her library reading group, volunteering at the hospital and working on her genealogy. Jane has always loved cats. One in particular, Lisa has been her constant companion since Jim's passing. Jane will always be remembered as a very loyal and caring friend, a grandmother who loves with all her heart and soul, and a parent who has guided her children through life's highs and lows with enormous compassion and love. We will all miss her infectious laugh and beaming smile. The family would like to give the staff at The Kathy Hospice a "special thanks" for all their care they gave to Jane.
