Jane was a beautiful person, full of life, always with a bright smile and a twinkle in her eye! I will miss her warm smile and seeing her sitting in the service at First United Methodist Church in Midland with her beautiful shawl. She was always interested in my children’s studies and told great stories! She left an impact on my life and will be greatly missed!
