I am so Sorry to find out Jane has passed away. I knew her for the past 10 or so years & thought She was very Special. Jane always had a smile, even when she wasn't feeling her best. She was so interesting to be with. I saw Her every 5 weeks, until this Pandemic hit and then I was only able to talk to her on the phone or send Her notes or cards in the mail. She had so many different collections, as do I and we would talk about them. I had dolls & bells in common with Her. She had some beautiful, handmade Diane Dengel dolls. I also had original Diane Dengel art & knew Diane Dengle personally, we would talk about the artist and I would let her know what Diane was doing & creating, when Jane wasn't getting out. I remember She put on a Bell seminar about 2 years ago for the residents of her apartment building. She was all excited they had asked her to share her collection & speak about it. She had about 20 to30 bell's She was going to show, a small amount from Her collection. They were all tagged & listed and She was speaking the next day. I know Julie had helped Her to get them ready. All Her beautiful collections had tags and identifications on them. She was so organized that way, much better than myself!
Jane was so proud & loving of Her family. I heard all about them through the years. I saw many pictures of the family & new babies as they came along. She told me so much about her family, She always looked forward to lunch with her Son and spoke of his trips to see his family out of town, the family dogs as I had that in common and we'd compare the pets. She told me about her tracing the family ancestry and heritage. It was never dull to be around Jane. I have missed not seeing Her smiling face, I'll truly miss getting together with Her in the future. She will always hold a Special place in my heart. I will always remember Her telling my husband to take some Kisses if he came with me, ( Hersey Kisses ). My prayers to you, Carmela

So sorry to hear of Aunt Jane’s passing. She was a wonderful godmother to me & a wonderful life long friend to my mom, Betty Bowers. I used to love bringing my mom to visit with Jane and listen to their reminiscing about their childhood in Batavia. They sure had a good time & laughed a lot.
Aunt Jane never forgot my birthday. I still have the books that she gave me as a child. Especially love Charlottes Web!!!
She will be missed by all who knew her. So sorry to all for your loss.
Here is a picture taken with my
Mom at a visit to St John’s.

Sending our love and condolences to Aunt Jane’s family. I will always remember Aunt Jane’s smile, laugh and her love of her bells, Santas and dolls. She inspired me to build my own collection of bells when I was young. I always loved visiting her when I was little. Rest In Peace, Aunt Jane. We love you.

My Gramma Jane was wonderful. She was always there for Dad or me when we needed her. Even though we ended up in MN, she still made time to visit us when we couldn't visit her. She encouraged my curiosity and love of reading. I'm glad we could be there for her in the end. I know she'll still be looking out for her whole family. I'll be ringing bells in her memory whenever I get a chance. The photo attached is my favorite photo of us. And how I'll picture her. Smiling and full of love.
