My sister had Mrs. Caferelli as a teacher in second grade in the same year that I had Mr. Caferelli in 4th grade. She was always so sweet and kind and patient with her students.
She was also best friends with Barbara Duncan so we got to see her often at family gatherings.
Your smile and energy will be missed.
I’m sure that you will find Barbara and the two of you will have a new set of fun adventures.
May your family find peace in knowing that Jane made a positive mark on the world, and she will be missed.

Dear Jane's family
We are sorry for your loss.
We knew Jane for a short period of time. Though short,glad we were neighbors.
Our fondest memory of her was leaving cookies on our front porch and cheering for the Eagles.
Jane was always very appreciative for any food or snacks we brought over.
She will be missed
With heartfelt sympathy
