I was saddened to hear of the great loss of Jane. She was a wonderful colleague and mentor. She nudged me to become a preceptor for the MSN students at FPB. Being a loyal and enthusiastic alum, it didn't take much nudging, but she was always there to guide and support. Jane was a terrific person and role model in psychiatric nursing. I am grateful for her many contributions to nursing and humanity!

Go in peace, my high-school girlfriend, graduate-school roommate, maid-of-honor and godmother to my son. You are the best.

My condolences to Susan, Fran, Rita and Glenn, Bill and Amy.

Jane was a great supporter of the COAR children in El Salvador. She followed in a fine family tradition of caring for the vulnerable children that her uncle Fr. Ken Myers began caring for in a war orphanage in 1980. Jane found creative was to help as well as direct generosity, and all cheerful and humble. We will miss the occasional visit, phone call, and email. But her legacy is eternal, watching over the children she has helped, who will be paying it forward to their children, owing it Jane, who will now be a gentle wind at their backs. Gracias amiga,

My condolences to Jane's family. I was acquainted with her at the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing, and I remember Jane as a kind and gentle person with a good sense of humor. She will be missed by those who knew her at the School of Nursing.

I am so sorry for your loss. I had the privilege of working with Jane at St Francis. We taught children’s liturgy together for many years. It was a pleasure to be her friend. I will miss her. Blessings that she is at peace now. Wow what a fighter.

I had the pleasure of working with Jane when I was faculty at the School of Nursing. We bonded over her birthplace as my mother was also born in Ottoville, Ohio and we enjoyed having Putnam County roots. Jane was committed as a faculty member and psychiatric nurse and it was a pleasure and an honor to have worked with her.

Jane and I were graduate students together at Case in 1987. We had a couple classes and I enjoyed working on projects with her. I was in my mid 20’s; she was about 20 years older, but I remember how much fun she was. Our last day of classes was a sunny spring day, and three of us picked up a bottle of champagne and went over to the lawn in University Circle. We had a little picnic, a little bubbly in plastic cups and then somehow decided it would be a good idea to go into the Natural History Museum, which had an exhibit of living dinosaurs. The animation was a new thing then, so we tipsy girls just had the BEST time and laughed our heads off until people stared at us. When Jane and I saw each other at conferences over the next 25 years or so, we always chuckled and reminisced about the day with the dinosaurs. She was a lovely lady and a delight to spend time with. Prayers and healing memories to her family.

My prayers and sympathy go out to Jane,s family. I have known Jane for many years ,as a student and faculty colleague. She was a brilliant therapist and an excellent ,devoted educator I will also miss her as a dear friend,her warm smile and kindness. It is a tremendous loss. I chaired her DNP Thesis but when I stepped down as Dean Jane helped me teach my first on-line course, a good example of the student becoming the teacher. She was great and I was grateful for the experience.

I had the privilege of caring for Jane for a short period. In that time I got to know a vivacious, smart, interesting lady. What a fulfilling life she lead. May her memory be eternal and may she happily dwell in paradise.
