I rode the bus with Jane. In addition, several months ago she helped me get my marriage license from 1976 so I could get the new drivers license. Jane was always talkative, friendly and took an interest in others lives. She was really looking forward to retiring at the end of the year and thought so much of her son. Thoughts and prayers are with all those that knew and loved Jane.

Jane’s loved ones have my condolences. Jane was a kind and generous person. I would get to talk to her every morning. I’ll miss her emails letting me know how she was doing. I’m glad to have counted her as a friend.

This is hard for me to believe Jane is not with us anymore. I worked with Jane few years ago in marriage license she was a wonderful person I enjoyed working with her. She would always ask how my family was doing. I will miss her so much.

This is really hard for me. You are on my mine constantly. You always gave me gifts, asked of my nieces, asked how my second job was going and many other things. Knowing you12 years is not long enough. Thanks for being my work confidant and gripe buddy. Xox

Janie was the sweetest person in our neighborhood. I have fond memories of walking to the Hook's Drugstore at 38th & College where we would sit at the soda fountain and she would buy me a Coke. I must have been 6-7 because I was too young to walk that far alone. She made me feel special, a big kid who paid attention to me. Rest well, good and faithful servant! Thanks for the memories!
