Oh dear. I did not know you were ill until you passed away. We worked together in a few atmospheres, you have been my nurse in a few others. Rest In Peace, friend. You have left your mark on this earth and definitely in this community! Best of regards and thoughts to your grieving family 💔.

Jane was a very special person. When I first started at Chenango Memorial she was one of the very first to make me feel welcome. Thoughts and prayers to the family.

I am proud to have met her, proud to have known her, and proud of every moment we shared. She is the strongest and most beautiful woman inside and outside I have ever met. Thank you for being you. We had so many laughs together. With tears I can honestly say you are the best thing that ever happened to me. I will cherish the time we spent together. I still can't believe you are gone. I will think about you every day. You were an angel in disguise, and now you are truly an angel. My heart and love go with you little Jaynie, wherever you go.
