I have fond memories of Jane and her husband Les. I met her when I became friends with her daughter Kay. Kay and I had children of the same age. Jane would treat my children as if they were her own grandchildren. She and Les would take them to church with Kay's children. Jane was kind, thoughtful and I enjoyed visiting with her. She was everybody's mom, and grandma. I know she will be sadly missed by all. She was like the woman you read of in Proverbs. I believe that after Jesus welcomed her home, she and Les walked hand in hand again. Prayers to the family.
