Jane was a dear friend when we worked together at Westinghouse. She was very level-headed and a joy to interact with. She was so very proud of all her family. Your memories of all the good times will see you through. Please accept my condolences. Carolyn Harshbarger

To Jane's family... I am sorry for your loss. I enjoyed chatting with Jane when I visited my grandma Mary, Jane's roommate, over the past four years at Lost Creek Care Center. May you all take comfort in the memories you have and know you are being prayed for.
