  1. Eternal Rest grant unto her O Lord and let the Perpetual Light Shine upon her and May she rest in Peace.
    You are loved by many Jane.

  3. I will miss her so much

  4. Very sorry for your loss Jackie. Our thought & prayers are with you and your family.

  5. Thank you for always being optimistic and kind. I’ll always remember you and love you.

    Getting to spend time with you and Dawn was nice. It’s too bad I didn’t get permission to move down there as a kid. It could have been really sweet! You made a great model for pictures 🙂

  6. Just wanted to send my condolences.

  7. Just came across Jane’s obituary and made me think of the family that lived next door for so many years. Lost track of everyone really, except for Jackie but you’ve all been thought of.
    Rest in Peace Jane
