Jane loved being a wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, and a friend. She enjoyed family time, reading, cooking, coloring, painting, playing games, working on puzzles, listening to Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin brothers, attending church, participating in bible studies, partnering with Stephen’s Ministry, and especially playing the piano.
Jane is survived by her husband, mother, children, grandchildren, and her siblings, Jean Hesler, Joy Fyfe (Alan), and Darrell Skantz (Ann). Jane was preceded in death by her father.
Jane is a two-time breast cancer survivor (1984 and 2004); in lieu of flowers and anyone who wishes to honor Jane, please make a contribution to her niece, Cindy Frazier and her family, in her fight with cancer.
