Jane Frances Blodgett
January 30, 1933 – December 26, 2018
Jane Frances (Quigley) Blodgett, 85, a longtime resident of Niantic, entered eternal life peacefully after a Christmas gathering with her beloved family on December 26, 2018.
She was born on January 30, 1933 in Hartford, daughter of the late James and Helen Quigley. Her passion and strength was providing a safe and loving home for her husband of 66 years, David K. Blodgett, and five children: Susan Faulkner (Jerry), Elizabeth Buhler, Michael Blodgett, David Blodgett Jr. (Sarah), and William Blodgett. In addition, she shared joy and laughter with her seven grandchildren (Aaron, Chad, Jared, William, Julia, Timothy, and Elizabeth), six great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her siblings Madeline Bassell and James Quigley Jr.
Jane loved being with people and had a very kind and sweet disposition. She enjoyed card games and socializing at the senior center, dominos with the ladies, dinner and movies with friends & family, and game nights with her children and grandchildren. She was an active member of Niantic Community Church where she participated in the Women's Christian Service Association and was also known for recruiting pie bakers for the annual summer suppers. Jane and Dave loved the sunshine and spent winters relaxing in Arizona. She will be greatly missed and forever loved.
A service celebrating her life will be held on Saturday, January 5, 2018, at 2:00 PM, at Niantic Community Church, 170 Pennsylvania Ave, Niantic, CT. Burial will be private at the convenience of the family. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Niantic Community Church Memorial Fund.

Jane was such a wonderful Aunt, her chocolate cupcakes with chocolate chips baked on the top where the best. She would bring them to all of the family gatherings. I remember going to visit my cousins and Jane would always have a draw full of candy. She would be my movie date when I was at home, especially horror movies. She will be missed.
Aunt I will always love you and remember you for the good person you are.
