Jane was a great supporter of the Agricultural Engineering family at Cornell University from a very early age. She moved from being a high spirited secretary as a young employee when there was no automation to being a well trusted keeper of the books that helped the Department run smoothly, cooperating with all of the faculty's project interests in every way she could. She participated in all department social functions and was a friend to anyone who needed a friend. She loved to chew gum! Happy is as happy does, and Jane was happy! We shall miss her very much, as well as Jane and Ed's visits to Ithaca in the summers after they retired.

Our memories are good ones. Rest in peace.
