Jane E. Turner

January 30, 1944January 9, 2020

Jane Ellen (LaMontagne) Turner, 75, of East Hartford went to be with our Lord on Thursday January 9th, 2020 unexpectedly after a short illness. She was surrounded by her family at St Francis Hospital. Jane was born in Chelsea, MA on January 30th, 1944, daughter of the late Arthur and Helen (Uzdarwin) LaMontagne. She graduated East Hartford High School class of 1962. Before her retirement she worked for Connecticut Union and Covenant Insurance for over ten years. Jane spent her life devoted to her children and grandchildren. Jane’s youthful spirit was full of life. She was the most fun-loving, witty, humorous soul, and her spunk made her easy to love. She spoke her mind with conviction and was adamant about what she felt was right. She loved her 50s music, lobster, being by the water and of course her occasional dirty martini. Anytime she could be with family and friends was priceless to her. Jane is survived by her son, Jason Turner and his fiancée, Jennifer Kieon of Pawtucket RI, her daughter Naomi Turner and her significant other Michael Gonsalves, of Bristol CT, 2 grandsons Andre Fair of Ft. Lauderdale, FL and Ajaye Fair of West Hartford, CT, 2 step-grandchildren Brianna and Toren Kieon of Pawtucket RI, 2 brothers Art LaMontagne and his wife Janet of Manchester, CT and Bob LaMontagne and his wife Anna Marie of Pennsylvania along with several nieces and nephews. The family will receive relatives and friends from 2 p.m. - 5 p.m. on Sunday, January 19th at D’Esopo East Hartford Memorial Chapel, 30 Carter St. East Hartford, CT. Words of remembrance will be shared at 5 p.m. on Sunday in the funeral chapel at the conclusion of calling hours. A Memorial Gift can be sent to www.conserveturtles.org to help preserve sea turtles for future generations. To leave a message for the family, please visit www.desopoeh.com

Less than 3 short months ago, Janie shared her kind memories about my husband John's passing, on his memory page. And today I want to offer my condolences to her children and family. Find comfort in knowing you were the world to your Mom, and fill your hearts with happy memories. And as Janie wished for John, RIP Jane!
May God hold you close and carry you through.
In Sympathy and Prayer,

Aunt Jane, You have been reunited in Heaven with your Mom and Dad, Uncle Joe and Uncle Bill, your grandparents and other family members, including pets. I have no doubt your family is treating you to lobster and dirty martinis as they welcome you to Heaven! And maybe an apple martini. I remember at Uncle Art's 60th birthday party, when I arrived, you came up to me holding an apple martini and you said, "Hey! You gotta get one of these! They're awesome!"

Thank you for the laughs, especially with your Facebook memes.

Jason and Naomi, may your memories with her help you through this difficult time.

My love and deepest condolences to her children, grandchildren. and brothers. May she now Rest in Peace.
