Not sure what to say?

Tammy, Chris, and Family Members,

Jane, Frances Kimball, and myself taught first grade together at NB Mills. Both ladies opened their file cabinets and their classroom closets filled with teaching materials to me, a beginning teacher in 1975. Their support, friendship, and guidance will be treasured.

So sorry for your lost. I never knew Jane but many years ago, Carolyn and I were neighbors as teenagers and she always talked about Jane. Prayers going up for you.


I am so sorry to hear of your Mom's death. Being neighbors, we always waved hello many times a day, I will miss seeing Jane working in the yard and passing each other as I walk my dog. I always walk Molly about 6:30 and always saw Jane was up and the TV was playing, it was very sad this morning as I passed. I will miss her very much. I will pray for you and hope you will feel Gods Presence and Comfort and strenght in the coming days. Many prayers, Kathy...

Mrs Riley was my 2nd grade teacher and I loved her class. I can still hear her voice and that was 25 years AGO! Whenever she saw my mom in recent years, she always would ask about me and my sister. She was a great teacher and she will be greatly missed

I was deeply saddened to learn of Jane's death. We were good friends as children and teens. She also was my son's excellent first-grade teacher. Please know that I am thinking of you all and praying for you.
