Mrs Klenotic was a very sweet, spiritual lady and an amazing teacher during one of the most important years in St Hilary School. She knew how to keep those wild little second graders in line, which was no small feat, and yet, she always had such an easy laugh and a twinkle in her eye. She was very often still in her room when we would pick Katrina up from after school latch key, long after the school day had ended. She simply cared that much that she was the very best teacher that she could be. In a great part thanks to Mrs Klenotic's touch, Jesus Day and 1st Communion became life events that resonated with so many children and their parents. They will remember and carry with them her influence throughout their lives. She touched so many people in a positive ways starting most importantly, with her family, and branching out to her students and the church as well. Hers was a life well lived. Our thoughts and prayers are with her children and all the Klenotic family. The Heils

I was so sorry to hear of Jane's passing. Although we only worked two years together at St. Hilary, I truly enjoyed her sense of humor and passion for education. My prayers go out to her family and the St. Hilary community where I know she will be missed.

Mrs. Klenotic was the quintessential "teacher" and we are so sad to hear of her passing. We are so thankful that our children had the opportunity to be taught by such a wonderful person.

Our love and prayers are being sent from South Carolina. We hope to be home in time Sunday to make calling hours for our favorite second grade teacher. I was thrilled when Jenny and Becka had her in 2nd grade. She trained hundreds to receive Jesus in First Communion year after year. With Mrs. crow they were an awesome team. She never aged and always had a smile. She hasn't left us behind, she has only gone on ahead. Rest in Peace, dear Jane.

To the Klenotic Family, Jane taught both my girls at St. Hilary. It was such a pleasure to know her. We will all miss her laugh and spirit. She was quite a lady, and the best second grade teacher anyone could ask for. We will truly miss her.

Too soon God calls some angels back, and Jane was certainly one of them. As anyone who passed through the halls of St. Hilary School knows, whether parent or student, fellow teacher or priest, Mrs. Klenotic always had a kind word ready, a hand out to help, or a finger poised for a quick "shhhhh" to her second-graders. A pillar of strength and the very picture of grace through Dr. Klenotic's recent passing, we here can take some measure of solace knowing they're surely together again in Paradise. Godspeed to Jane, and love and prayers from the Esker family. Chris, Kay, Emily, Maddy and Christopher Esker

To the Klenotic Family,

I had the pleasure of being one of Mrs. Klenotic's students many years ago. I will always remember her as kind, dedicated teacher, and that the definition of "silence" can be found on page 577 of the dictionary! My deepest sympathies to you all.

Our prayers are with the Klenotic family at this time. We were extremely blessed to have her teach and mentor our boys at St. Hilary.

Jane and I met in college and, as coincidence would have it, she taught both my niece and nephew at St. Hilary. She was a wonderful person and a very talented teacher. I will remember her family in my prayers. May God hold you close. Elizabeth Gross Leonow

My deepest sympathy and prayers to Jane's family. May Jane rest in peace. I remember Jane as setting the altar for the Eucharist at the 4:00 p.m. Mass on Saturdays.

To Jenn and the entire Klenotic family, our deepest sympathy to you on the loss of your mother. She was one of those "special" people that God put on this earth and we are honored to have known her.

Dear Drew, Jennifer, and Kevin,
The most important thing I want to share with you is what I have learned from your mother. To value life, to be the better person, and to love my children unconditionally.
To Jane,
When I went out to choose a friend
I searched my world from end to end.
There were many acquaintances, but friends were few
And then God led my feet to you!

Drew, Jen, and Kevin, my deepest sympathies to all of you. Your Mom was such an inspiration to me, and one of my dearest friends. She was "that" teacher that every student wants to have, and for Stephanie, she will cherish the relationship that she had with your Mom always. It was an honor for Terry and I to have her be part of our wedding, but most of all it was an honor to call her "friend". Until we meet again my friend, may perpetual light shine upon you, and may you rest in peace.
Chris, Terry and Stephanie Alekna-Lewis
