Jane was a 1941 graduate of Attica High School. She was employed by Steve’s Market which later became Hudson’s Grocery in Waynetown. She was a member of Waynetown Baptist Church, the Order of the Eastern Star and the American Legion Auxiliary where she served as treasurer for several years. She enjoyed spending time with her family, gardening, quilting and cooking.

Jane was a very reserved person who enjoyed sewing and quilting. She was devoted to her family and cherished every opportunity to be with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Summers were special times she spent planning adventures on the road with her special sisters-in-law, Bonnie Fay Simmons and Betty Fay Gravett), working in her yard, and tending to her flowers and vegetable patch. . She canned green beans and tomatoes, frozen corn and peaches. She made dozens of jars of her “special recipe” raspberry jelly… all in a bid to send them home with those who visited. His greatest pleasure was cooking a big meal (including homemade pies) and filling his family’s house… always ending the evening with a somewhat competitive game of cards or Yahtzee!
