I had the privilege of meeting Jane when I worked at Elmcroft. Most days she talked about her grandsons (she adored them) and would ask about my son (he is a little younger then Grayson). She often talked about her family and how proud she was of them! One memory I will cherish is going to lunch at Country Cupboard to see a friend of hers. We had a blast and it was so nice to see the smile on her face the entire day! My heart aches to hear this news and my thoughts are with the entire family during this time.

Aunt Jane was a very special person. She will be missed by all who had the good fortune to have known her. Uncle Dale and Aunt Jane were great badminton players. We loved them both.

Jane and her husband were my aunt and uncle. When my sister Norma and I were growing up they had a great deal to do in molding us and turning us into the people we are today. I’m so saddened by their passing. I will always remember her as the great fun loving person she was , always ready to give of herself.
