Jane Virginia Barton Roy, originally from Sweetwater, was born Nov. 29, 1929 in San Angelo. She grew up south of Sweetwater on the family ranch and went to school in Divide. She received her Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Nutrition from Texas Women's University. While working at the VA Hospital in Oklahoma City, Okla. she met Mihir B. Roy, a petroleum engineer, and they wed in 1968. They traveled overseas for many years staying in Lagos, Nigeria for quite sometime. Upon returning to the states, they resided in The Woodlands, where she became chief Clinical Dietitian at Houston Northwest Medical Center. The University of Houston honored her after she retired with the Outstanding Service Award and since then the award has been renamed the Jane B. Roy Outstanding Service Award. After retiring she stayed busy with civic and community organizations.
She is survived by two nieces, Suzanne Kirkpatrick and her children Katie and Shannon of Jacksonville, Fla. and Julia Mink and her husband Ron along with their children, Daniel, Brian and Audrey of Sweetwater.
She was preceded in death by her husband, M.B.; parents, Robert and Thelma Barton; her uncle and aunt, Hubert and Mary Barton; her sister, Mildah Lynn Barton Dyer and husband Arland R. Dyer; John Kirkpatrick, husband of Suzanne.
She was a member of the DAR. She absolutely loved rocks of all types and NASCAR, but most especially cats.
In lieu of flowers donations to your nearest animal rescue center or favorite charity would be appreciated.
