Mary Jane Sibbrel Obituary
MARY JANE SIBBREL On Wednesday January 20 2015 Mary Jane Sibbrel, 82, passed peacefully with her family by her side. Mary Jane was born on February 2, 1932 in Seattle, Washington to Jeanette and Wesley Munn. Her family moved to San Francisco in the 30's where she was raised until she went to Graceland College in Iowa. Mary Jane married William Thornton on 2/28/52 In Lafayette, CA, and raised her 3 boys, Jeff, Greg, and Scott in Riverside CA. During this time, she was a hands on mother; dedicated to their swimming, water polo, and occasional getaways to Laguna Beach or to see her mother in Sebastopol every summer. Mary Jane was also active with the Calvary Presbyterian Church, volunteered at the Riverside Community Hospital, and worked at the Victoria Animal Hospital. In the late 70's she owned and operated Road Runner Liquors in Hemet, and in the early 80's married Bill Sibbrel, residing in Hemet enjoying many happy years traveling in their RV and playing golf together. In the 90's Mary Jane loved being a grandmother and relished her time with her grandchildren; where she was happy to baby sit, and watch many soccer, baseball and basketball games. As the years passed, she enjoyed family gatherings, her beloved dogs, and sitting by the window overlooking the ocean as the waves rolled on. No service is planned and the family will be honoring her memory off the coast of her favorite beach in Laguna this summer when her grandchildren return home from college.
