I am writing on behalf of my mother who does not have access to a computer. Jane and my mother met during a very difficult time in both of their lives and my mother remembers what a God send Janes positive attitude was to her. Jane shared her time and her upbeat approach to life and is remembered as beautiful inside and out. An odd twist is my own daughter is a second cousin to Jane.

It is with sadness that we read of Jane's passing. It was a joy to get to know her a little at our 1960 Monthly reunions at Main Event in Little Chute when she was able to join us.

You meant a lot to all of our classmates of 1960, and will be remembered with love. We now have a guardian angel to watch over all of us.
