My deepest sympathies to you all. I loved Jane, she was such a wonderful, caring, loving person. I remember she always would stop in to take a break and sit with me and chit chat. When she retired, I was so very happy for her, but also sad because I would miss our talks. I am heartbroken but thankful that she is no longer suffering. I will always think of her with a grateful heart that she came into my life. She will be forever missed XO May she rest in peace.

So sorry Shannon and Shelly, I will always remember your mom with a smile on her face. Every time I saw her she was smiling and always willing to sit and talk she was the best. I will never forget the first time I meant with her this was my journey in finding my family when I did find you Shannon and Shelly I also found Jane. She was a genuine lady with all good things to say and filled with kindness I have not seen you in a while but you left me with good memories and some great times Heaven has a great angel that so many people will miss.

Jane you were the wife of Bill Barriteau my husbands brother. You were not just a sister in law you were a friend. We didn’t live in the city anymore so we didn’t see as much of each other. The memories we shared were when our kids were younger and going to get togethers. I know you suffered for quite a while before your death . You have earned the beautiful crown that will be bestowed upon your entrance into “Heaven”. Rest In Peace. You will be missed my beautiful friend.
