Jane was a devoted wife and partner to Robert for over 30 years, sharing many life experiences and a loving home.

Jane enjoyed dancing, singing karaoke, playing pool and was very often the life of the party. She was no wallflower. She never met a stranger as she would greet you, cracks jokes and became fast friends. She was always willing to offer a helping hand to anyone in need, as she had a tremendously giving heart and nature.

Jane was very crafty and had many talents and loved to crochet after becoming a grandmother as she made it her life goal to place a handmade blanket on all her children and grandchildren’s beds.

Jane worked many jobs throughout her life as well as attending college to become a registered nurse. Although that dream was not fulfilled due to medical issues, she still continued to work at a nursing home until she her retirement.
In her final stages of life she took much love and joy with her beloved puppy “Bear”.
