  • To Jim and the entire Carver/Traxler Family. I was devastated to hear of Jane’s passing. I graduated from Madison with Jane and kept in contact with her while I was in Nurses Training at Mansfield General and she was working there. Jane was always laughing….I loved running in to her because she always brightened my day. I was happy to reconnect with her on Facebook. I can still hear her laugh and I am sure she has brightened heaven with her presence. Praying for comfort for all of you.

  • Jane was my first-ever preceptor. I was scheduled to start nursing school in the fall and started working 3North as an aide. I remember making my first bed. I mitered the head and the foot. She said, “Well, that’s one way to do it!”…she took this wet-behind-the-ears pup under her wing, and helped her become a nurse. She taught me more than tasks. She taught me how to truly care about patients in a way that mattered. She used humor to get the crustiest patient to smile. I will always love her and remember her as an example of what hands on nursing care should be. Thank you, Jane. I will continue to honor your memory by giving my best to my patients.

    I was so sorry to hear about Jane. I will miss her. I enjoyed working with her for many years and have fond memories of lots of fun times with her and all the 4WB gang. I will be thinking of you Jim during this difficult time.

  • My deepest sympathy to Jane’s family.
    We shared the same birthday and became friends at Wooster Heights Elementary. We both became nurses and many times would “bump” into each other on our birthday at Mansfield General Hospital
    She was a great gal and a compassionate nurse with an infectious laugh.
    So sorry for your loss.
