  1. I really enjoyed working with Jane all those years. She was a character. I have a set of her dishes I bought from her at a garage sale . She said Bill told her “Now Jane you just HAD to have those dishes “ 😊 . She had a Christmas tree with a different theme in every room in her house during the holidays. So sorry for your loss Bill. She was a great lady. Josie

  4. Heaven has gained one heck of a lady. She was a very special friend to me for years at SBC/ATT. “Bless your Heart” was her phrase, I always think of her when I hear that phrase.
    I’ll always cherish the memories I made with her.
    May God cover her family with Love & Comfort to get thru these difficult times, and be with each of them in the days ahead.

Anyone who knew Jane undoubtedly heard her contagious laugh and has been the recipient of her, “Bless your heart!” The world will be a sadder place without her presence. Her chores were completed, she entered the gates of Heaven, and heard, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.” Praise the Lord!
