Aunt Mary Jane was a beautiful lady who loved her family. She was always dressed flawlessly with a huge smile on her face. She enjoyed spending time with her siblings and in-laws, laughing and telling stories. Beautiful memories of Mary Jane. God bless her. May she rest in peace.

I remember when I was 15 and had an accident at work and my forehead was bleeding. I left work and was walking home holding my bloody shirt to the cut. A sweet lady pulled over and offered this kid a ride home . That sweet caring lady was Mary Jane. I later became friends with the trossens mainly through my wife Jackie and her family. She was always fun to be around. She will be missed. John McCord
