  • What a dear friend to our family for over 60 years! My Mother’s dear friend that I’m sure they had shared many stories as they raised their families. My girl’s Aunt Jane(but not related). The caramels that came at CHRISTmas time. What a heritage you children have! Carry it on in the style of your dear Mother. May the Lord bless you keep you! Prayers in the days ahead!
    Love you, Hollis and my girls, Nicole & Mishel

  • May God’s peace and comfort be with you as you go through this very sad time. Your mother’s family was friends of my family for my lifetime. Jane was very special person loving, caring, fun to visit with and always a friendly hi. Praying for God’s comfort for your family. Brenda Drury Conard.

  • Dorothy and Leland Hubbell express our condolences. We have known her for many years. Dorothy was especially involved with her in many activities. Will miss her.

  • Thought and prayers for the family. Jane was a wonderful lady. The family welcomed us onto the neighborhood back in the 70’s. So many memories over the years. She was a blessing to everyone. Hugs to the family.

  • So sorry to hear of my good friend’s passing. We started in Appleton school 1st through 8th, then we graduated from Johnstown together. If it hadn’t been for Jane doing my homework that I hated, so I could go home and get on a tractor, I don’t think I would have graduated! Lela and I enjoyed double dating with her all through high school. One of the nicest and most caring person I ever knew. Heaven is rejoicing as they welcome her there.

  • Sorry for your loss. Rodney and I were gone and I just found out about Janes death. Deepest sympathy to the family.
