Jane Catherine Lotter

One of the few advantages of dying from Grade 3, Stage IIIC endometrial cancer, recurrent and metastasized to the liver and abdomen, is that you have time to write your own obituary. (The other advantages are no longer bothering with sunscreen and no longer worrying about your cholesterol.) To wit:

I was born in Seattle on August 10, 1952, at Northgate Hospital (since torn down) at Northgate Mall. Grew up in Shoreline, attended Shorecrest High, graduated from the University of Washington in 1975 with a Bachelor of Arts in History. Aside from eight memorable months lived in New York City when I was nineteen (and where I worked happily and insouciantly on the telephone order board for B. Altman & Co.), I was a lifelong Seattle resident.

In my professional life, I was a freelance writer, editor, and proofreader. Among career honors, I received a First Place Society of Professional Journalists award for Humorous Writing for my column Jane Explains, which ran from 1999-2005 in the Jet City Maven, later called The Seattle Sun. Also won First Place in the Mainstream Novel category of the 2009 Pacific Northwest Writers Association Literary Contest for my comic novel, The Bette Davis Club (available at Amazon.com). I would demonstrate my keen sense of humor by telling a few jokes here, but the Times charges for these listings by the column inch and we must move on.

Many thanks to Sylvia Farias, MSW, at Swedish Cancer Institute for encouraging me to be part of an incredibly wise gynecological cancer support group. Thanks as well to the kind-hearted nurses and doctors at Group Health Capitol Hill oncology. And thanks to my sister Barbara who left no stone unturned in helping me get life-extending treatment in my final months.

I also want to thank Mrs. Senour, my first grade teacher, for teaching me to read. I loved witty conversation, long walks, and good books. Among my favorite authors were Iris Murdoch (particularly The Sea, The Sea) and Charles Dickens.

I was preceded in death by my generous and loving parents, Michael Gallagher Lotter and Margaret Anne Lotter (nee Robertson), and by my dear younger sister, Julie Marie Lotter. I am survived by my beloved husband, Robert ("Bob") Lee Marts, and our two adult children: daughter, Tessa Jane Marts, and son, Riley William Marts. Also my dear sisters Barbara Lotter Azzato, Kathleen Nora Lahti, and Patricia Anne Crisp (husband Adrian). And many much-loved nieces and nephews, in-laws, and friends.

I met Bob Marts at the Central Tavern in Pioneer Square on November 22, 1975, which was the luckiest night of my life. We were married on April 7, 1984. Bobby M, I love you up to the sky. Thank you for all the laughter and the love, and for standing by me at the end. Tessa and Riley, I love you so much, and I'm so proud of you. I wish you such good things. May you, every day, connect with the brilliancy of your own spirit. And may you always remember that obstacles in the path are not obstacles, they ARE the path.

I believe we are each of us connected to every person and everything on this Earth, that we are in fact one divine organism having an infinite spiritual existence. Of course, we may not always comprehend that. And really, that's a discussion for another time. So let's cut to the chase:

I was given the gift of life, and now I have to give it back. This is hard. But I was a lucky woman, who led a lucky existence, and for this I am grateful. I first got sick in January 2010. When the cancer recurred last year and was terminal, I decided to be joyful about having had a full life, rather than sad about having to die. Amazingly, this outlook worked for me. (Well, you know, most of the time.) Meditation and the study of Buddhist philosophy also helped me accept what I could not change. At any rate, I am at peace. And on that upbeat note, I take my mortal leave of this rollicking, revolving world-this sun, that moon, that walk around Green Lake, that stroll through the Pike Place Market, the memory of a child's hand in mine.

My beloved Bob, Tessa, and Riley. My beloved friends and family. How precious you all have been to me. Knowing and loving each one of you was the success story of my life. Metaphorically speaking, we will meet again, joyfully, on the other side.

Beautiful day, happy to have been here.

XOXO, Jane/Mom

Jane took advantage of Washington state's compassionate Death with Dignity Act and died peacefully at home on July 18, surrounded by her family. She was sixty years old. At Jane's request, her ashes were scattered in Elliott Bay, near the Pike Place Market. Jane and Bob also have a tile on Row 41 at the Market that says

BOB AND JANE IN LOVE.

A celebration of Jane's life will be held at 3:00 p.m. on August 4, 2013, at the Great Hall at Green Lake, 7220 Woodlawn Avenue NE, Seattle, 98115.

Friends have established a memorial fund. Reference the Jane Lotter Benevolent Account, A/C number 3595611530, c/o BECU, PO Box 97050, Seattle, 98124-9750.

I just read The Bette Davis Club and enjoyed it enough to look for other books written by her. How sad to know this was the one and only. Glad I found it and through it learn what a gifted storyteller she was. To you, her dear family and friends, how lucky you were to have had her in your lives.

I was moved by the forward of "The Bette Davis Club" and completely absorbed in her novel. What a neat lady she must have been! My Mom also loved old movies, and TCM was on in her nursing home room 24/7. Thank you for this book and the emotional ride it and your beautifully self written obit. took me on...

I appreciate how Jane Catherine Lotter poignantly reminds those that take the time to read her wisdom regarding the precious gift of life - and not take that gift for granted. There will likely be many more readers who will be seeing this as New York Times writer Susan Gubar provides a link to this page in her 19 July 2018 article, "Write your own obit." as part of an article series "Living with Cancer." For those of you that find Jane's obituary via other paths, please take the time to search via Google for Susan Gubar's essay using the search terms in double quotes above (with the double quotes included.) There is much wisdom in the comments and condolences. However, I appreciate Jane Catherine Lotter's simple commentary, "I was given the gift of life, and now I have to give it back." Thanks to Bob Marts and his family for sharing these gifts with the wider world.

I found Jane's story through an article in today's NYT.
My Mother, Mary Lou Dolson and my brother John Dolson died within weeks of each this winter.
I am alone now and I suppose one of my greatest sadnesses will be never discussing with either of them how they would want to be remembered in writing.
Janes beautiful obituary will be sent to many of my friends and acquaintances. In my neighborhood we all have more days behind us than ahead and it's time for us to write our own story.
Thank you Jane, I'll be seeing you.

Jane: Just found myself quoting you for the second time in two days. So thankful for all you've given me, even witty phrases to pilfer from a better writer than I.
I miss you dearly, yet you somehow made everything — even the fact that you're gone — seem to be okay.
Hope you are reading this, and I'm sure that you can, because everything in the world is connected, and in my opinion, what's up in the sky as well.
There I go again — I stole another one. Hat trick.

I just read "The Bettie Davis Story" while resting after cancer surgery. I loved the book and I cried when I found out she had died. What a brave lady she was. I never had a chance to read any of her columns, but I will look for them in case they are available. Rest in peace Jane

Oh Jane, it's been two years since you left us. I think of you and miss you every day. It's a rough year and I hope you and Mick are together. I take a certain "comfort" in believing that you are all reunited, Mom & Dad, you, Julie, Mickey, Aunt Dorothy and many others. You are so very much loved and definitely not forgotten.

My 67 yo mother passed of ovarian cancer on June 29, 2013. I read Jane's obituary and was very moved. It struck my heart.

Though I am a 39 yo adult, I wished my mom had spent her two years of illness writing as Jane did, but I guess that wasn't my own mom's way. She didn't. She said nothing---did nothing; was scared of death. I guess that's why I relate to Jane's philosophies so much. She is right--we are from one organism, obstacles ARE our path. Those are life changing ways of thinking. I shared it with my daughters.

Jane was a progressive, loving person not afraid to speak her will. Thank you Jane. You have filled a void for me.

I too did not know Jane but came across her moving obituary through the news. To say it touched me was an understatement. I recently lost my mother..she died unexpectedly on Aug 7th..I do not know which is worse _ knowing your going to die or it "coming out of the middle of nowhere?...I can say that I have never felt so much pain in my life. My mother was my world - my best friend, my supporter, my advisor, my rose. Somehow, Jane's words have relayed to me what my mother taught me all along - Jane helped to remind me that God left me here for a purpose. Goood or bad..I have a purpose. Along my path, I take my mother with me. Thank you, Jane, your warmth and depth are living proof of your footsteps here on Earth. God bless always...

To Jane's beloved Bob, Tessa and Riley, family and friends, I had the privilege of reading Jane's obituary on my brother's FB wall of all places. And to respect all anonymity, as names are irrelevant in this case, ( I think he just read this somewhere as well!) I was moved to write you to say how inspired I am by Jane's grateful disposition and her spirit. It's seems you have been graced with her love and I can see that will live on forever. Having said that, I am sorry for your loss, may you find miles of smiles ever more in the wonder and gift of your memories. They seem cherish-able

Dear Jane, I loss my special great Neice weeek before last. She was only twenty years old.The family is so sad and they loved her dearly. Please welecome her into Heaven, if you will. She liked to write, like you, except her writing was poetry. Also, she was a very good artist. I know that she would like you ( a lot), and, I would appreciate it so very much, being the great aunt Barbara, who loved her so very very much. I pray for your family every day, Jane, because I can FEEL how they loved you and miss you. I am sure you will both love being in God's beautiful Heaven.

I was reading about a Charlie Rose interview on a website just now when I saw this link: "Powerful Self-Written Obituary goes viral" and had to check it out. I never knew Jane nor have I been familiar with her work before now. However, after listening to her "voice" through her obituary, her life has just made a significant earthly connection to mine. I printed out her obituary to always remind me to have a "beautiful day" and be "happy to be here"!

I met Jane standing in the pitch session line at the PNWA conference a couple years ago; I just read about her death in the PNWA newsletter. Jane helped me practice the pitch for the novel that wound up being published this year. I've never forgotten how she brightened up the waiting and made me laugh when talking about her book. I'm so glad she made it available to all of us and I will read it with tears and a lot more laughter, I'm certain. An amazing writer and woman!

To the family and friends of Jane Catherine Lotter, my most sincere condolences. I just read Jane's personal obit and couldn't stop smiling as I read it. It was so simply yet beautifully written..her inner sense of peace and acceptance shining through. I saw a link to her obit via a Shorecrest High School Facebook page. I'm sorry to have never read any of her written work while she was alive but am now inspired to read some of her work based on her self written obituary. My thoughts and prayers to her family and friends.

Our days on earth are like grass;

The wind blows, and we are gone—
as though we had never been here

***************************************
To the family, loved ones and many friends of this incredible woman...

THROUGH DARKNESS THERE IS LIGHT ... so that we may see the beauty of life renewed. REJOICE for this is meant to be a celebration of new beginnings!

To her loving husband, Bob Marts...

Speak to her... for she is all around you... she is in the scent on her pillow... her favorite chair... and in all things she has touched.

Let it bring comfort to you knowing that not only is she all around you in the things you can't see but in the things which can also be felt with the heart.

Memories made are priceless and real ... she may have left you behind in an unexpected way but her love for you will remain in your heart and in the faces of your children and your grandchildren for to be able to see them is to know that they were created out of the love which began between the two of you.

Take comfort in knowing that she is with her Lord and savior... one day you will join her in a spiritual way surrounded by the warmth and the light of the love you both shared.

Jane, you had a wonderful outlook on life ~ very similar to mine... a realisation come to after also going through Stage 4 Cancer - fortunately for me I have now been in remission for 16 years.I am also a writer though not a famous one :-) and have also written my own obit although I need to update it.

I am glad that you were able to choose a dignified death in the presence of your Loved Ones; everyone deserves that.

We shall meet one day in another realm... I look forward to it...

Love, Light & Strength to your Loved Ones.

Jane, your story has caused my tears to flow. Unlike you my life has been filled with devastation and destruction and my days now,with increasing regularity,are filled with a desire to have the pain of loneliness and isolation end. I can only wish that I could have enjoyed the kind of life you have led and have the peace of mind about "the end" you have spoken about. My hope is that maybe I will get the chance to meet you there were you are now.
