I met Jane in 8th grade at Paseo High School. We became friends immediately--she was fun, funny full of life and crazy, which I was too, so that's probably why we hit it off. In 1963 my dad asked if we'd like to to go Memphis to see Graceland......OF COURSE!! He drove all night---stopping at this little restaurant so we could get something to eat and he could take a quick (and I'm sure needed nap....we talked and giggled the whole way). We got into Memphis early, about 7am. Drove to the gate and a gentleman, named Mr Pepper, told us to go up the road to a cafe' where Elvis ate sometimes then come back. When we got back, he opened the gates and we drove up to the house. Jane and I roamed all around the front of the house and grounds. Went up the steps to the house and were nicely told not to knock on the door----Elvis' grandma took unkindly to that. Jane giggled ... she thought we were going to get into trouble for going up to the door. We both stole a rock from the curb....shhhhh!! Daddy drove us all around Memphis then the next day drove us to Tupelo Mississippi to the house he was born and raised in. We got to just walk that time it was just an empty house. Took pictures and a little piece of wallpaper.....I always thought she did the same thing but last year she told me she didn't....that took me by surprise. We had the best time!! I'm sure going to miss that girl.....everything about her. God Bless, Jane Till we meet again...

Duane, Shelly, and Scott, and the rest of the Fields and Miller clan - I just wanted to send my sincere condolences to you with the passing of Jane, or Janie as some refer to her. I have had the honor and pleasure of sharing magic, and breaking bread numerous times in the 25 plus years I've known her. She will be an inspiration to me in how to treat both friends and strangers, which she really never knew a stranger. Her spirit will live on in all of us. May God Bless her evermore until we meet again. Alan Goodheart

James & I are so honored to know Jane. She leaves a deep inspiration in our hearts of her life from our short time in knowing her. She always made us feel so welcomed, as if we were the most important person when we were with her. She deeply cared for people and understood honor. She exemplified honor of her husband and of her Heavenly Father. She will be deeply missed on this side, but is being celebrated with a welcome home on the other side... where life truly begins! Welcome Home Jane!💝

Sometimes the people we meet enrich our lives forever by leaving wonderful memories and experiences on our hearts. Jane, whom we fondly know as Janie, with her husband Duane, as Christians, have been the finest examples of that, by giving unselfishly and continuously of their time and talents to many others. But it is not only that experience that made Janie outstanding in my memory. Janie's fine Christian character, sincerity, and willingness to always help others are all attributes worthy of recognition. As a Kansas City Ring member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians, I had the opportunity to first-hand know Janie and Duane while attending monthly meetings over many years. In addition, I found it was Duane and Janie who both actually did most all of the detailed work of managing the Annual Magicians' Dinners and Contests over all the many years I attended -- at the request of the Officers and Board of Directors. It is sad to learn of the passing of Janie, and she will always be remembered. Our thoughts are now with Duane during this sad and difficult time. -- Gene Kean and Janet Satz, Lawrence, Kansas.

Our family has suffered a tremendous loss with our Janie's passing. My memories of her are many and precious. Her beautiful smile together with her ability to show love and concern for whoever was in need was freely given and always from a heart of compassion for others. She exemplified all of the fruits of the spirit that a follower of the Messiah should surely have. Our family gatherings will never be the same without her joyous laughter and presence. Yet, we do not grieve as others who do not have a hope for the future. Her faith and trust in the Lord assure us that we will be joining her with the return of the Messiah. Until then we will cherish our memories of her and comfort one another.
