I have many fond memories of Jane. She had a great smile and was always glad to see you. The memory I will never forget is my mother and Jane making cookies together at the Baker house. Jane was so patient with my mother Lillian as she helped my mother make cookies. They had a great time that day. Jane and my mother sharing their love of baking together.That special memory will have a special place in my heart. I was blessed to know Jane.
