Jayne Orensten Achter, 92, passed away at home Jan. 22, 2012, with her loved ones at her side. She was born July 28, 1919, in Wilmington, Del. Jayne is survived by her two daughters, Nan Schwartz and Susan T. Spencer, whose father was Leonard H. Tose, the former owner of the Philadelphia Eagles Football Club.

Jayne's family also included her stepdaughter, Rhodan Vignaud; granddaughters, Carole Fisher, Michelle Schwartz and Marnie Schneider; grandson-in-law, Gary Fisher; and great-grandchildren, Brooke Wallace, Aaron Fisher, Jonathan Witten, Goldie Witten and Leo Witten. Jayne was an accomplished interior designer. She worked with numerous celebrities and well-known restaurateurs, as well as designing several country clubs.

A woman of accomplishment, Jayne was an outstanding golfer, winning a number of amateur championships, a successful businesswoman, and a powerful role model for strong women. This reflected her drive and desire to be independent at a time when women followed a more traditional path.

The family respectfully requests that, in lieu of flowers, a donation be made to Nathan Adelson Hospice. Arrangements under the direction of King David Memorial Chapel, Las Vegas, NV.
