Jane was an active volunteer around Columbia, especially with the American Red Cross, and served on the Board of Directors of Richland Memorial Hospital. Jane was a faithful member of Eastminster Presbyterian Church for over 60 years and ran the drop-in nursery there for many years. Jane will be remembered for her love of the Lord, a loyal circle of close friends, and especially for her family, to whom she was affectionately known as “Gigi.” Memorials may be made to Eastminster Presbyterian Church, The Humane Society, or a charity of one’s choice. The family is appreciative of Still Hopes, Solutions for Living, Aspire Staffing, Shirley and all her many caregivers. Dunbar Funeral Home, Devine Street Chapel, is assisting the family.
