Our family really missed her last weekend at the concert at FBC New Waverly. No piano player and her sweet welcome. Blessings to her family.

We first met Ms Jane at a gospel concert in Houston about 4 years ago. Then we ran into her at the National Quartet Convention . It was fun looking for her at the concerts. She was always very nice. I wish I had heard her play the piano. I tried to come to the service, but my GPS just too me to a field... I know she is in heaven singing with the saints.

My heart was saddened when I learned of Sis Lemmons just today. I have so many wonderful memories with the Lemmons family and for their faithfulness when they pastored our church. And all the fun we had at my parents house. The music she played and sang. She will be missed by many. Praying for Bro Lemmons, Mike, Les and all the family.

Aunt Jane was always smiling and kind. When she visited Pa to see her mother, my great-grandmother, she often brought treats for me and my brother and sister. She had a fun personality and I have good memories of her. I’m sure she is enjoying heaven today.

We met Jane at National Quartet Convention in Louisville and enjoyed visiting with her at Houston area concerts and Cracker Barrel. Her ready smile and caring heart were examples to us of a true servant of the Lord. She will be greatly missed by so many. Our prayers remain with her precious family.

Jane's love for music was so contagious and inspiring! We know that while we will forever miss her talent on this earth, heaven is rejoicing with her presence. While we may have been unprepared for her being called to home in heaven, our faithful Savior had planned for her arrival and welcomed her home. We pray that God give you His supernatural comfort that only He can provide to ease your pain, heal your heartfelt loss and that you would KNOW His presence that surrounds you in peace. Our deepest sympathy and prayers are with you.

Dear Jim, our deepest sympathies at your loss of precious Jane. Precious memories of so many years ago - but read through the "memories" and talking with Daneen and David made us realize that the very sweet Jane we knew then lived on for Jesus until her going to heaven. God's blessings and comfort to you and the family. Ps 23 speaks so much ---He is our Shepherd and walks with us through the valley of the shadow.... Praise Him Forever and ever. Love you Jim, Donnie and Becky Plemons

She will be sorely missed!! Our love and prayers go out to Jim, Leslie, Mike and their families!! Love you all, Pat and Bud Tolley, Princeton, WV

We met Jane at a Gospel Concert in Humble several years ago. She always wore a distinctive and colorful coat and her hair was exquisitely coiffured. We talked to her often and she was constantly telling us where the best concerts were and encouraging us to go the the National Quartet Convention.

She always called us the "the couple from Magnolia". We loved her and will miss her like family. We attended the Dignity concert on April 7th and commented once again that we hadn't seen Jane. She wasn't at the Mims Baptist Church for the Collingworths either. I remember telling Jana, my wife, that we would have to go to Cracker Barrel in Conroe to see her. I know she's in a better place and she's praising her Savior, but we'll miss her A LOT. She lived her life passionately doing what she enjoyed - Gospel Music.

I do anticipate that, just like Cracker Barrel, Jane will be there to greet us just inside Heaven's Door. We just got one more reason for longing for Heaven.
