Jane and I worked together for 25+ years on a professional basis, and I can honestly say that I've never worked with anyone I enjoyed more. Whenever she called me to discuss something she was always happy and upbeat not matter the circumstances. She always had a smile on her face and you could really hear it in her voice as well. I had hoped to be able to work with Jane for the balance of my career, and I will truly miss talking with her.

Jan was a gift to me. She shared her wisdom with me and others. I truly looked forward to Thursday morning meetings just to see her smile. Blessings to family and friends who will miss her.

Dear Dave,
We are saddened to learn of Jane's passing. She was a wonderful teacher and a fine person. The early musical training our sons received from her laid a strong foundation for developing their ability.
May you feel the love and support of family and friends in your time of loss.

Dear Dave,

I was so very sorry to see Jane's death in today's paper. We joined Weisser Park Staff the same year and I so enjoyed knowing her.

Please know that I will be thinking of you in these difficult times.

Your former colleague,
Pat Adsit
