To Mary Jane's Family,
I have known Mary Jane since I was born and through the friendship of my grandparents Frank and Josephine Kandler. I remember her as being the first kind person I met in my life at a very young age. She always was compassionate and generous with her sweetness. Mary Jane, being soft spoken, always had a positive personality trait. I will never forget her mother Mrs. Weinert either. The visits to the Evangola Cottage, my dad helping your dad cutting down the trees, swimming at the beach and of course the german potato salad my grandmother made, are all engrained in my early memories, with 8 mm film for enforcement. Sorry for our loss.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you on the death of your mom. I have many wonderful memories of your mom especially the monthly breakfasts with the ladies from cards, Rosary Altar get-togethers and St. Benedict's social events! Always there with a smile and encouraging words. Remember taking care of your dad on 3 North and calming her fears and letting her know that everything would be OK. She was a wonderful lady and will truly be missed. John and I are so sorry for your loss. Donna Killian Shepherd and John Shepherd

Mary Jane was a sweet lady and I always enjoyed chatting with her when I saw her. She loved her family and was so proud of them all. I know that she left you all with many, many memories to cherish.

Many fond memories of Mary Jane as we both worked for AMA&S. I recall seeing Mary Jane and her daughter shopping at the Bonton these last few years. My deepest sympathy and prayers.
