Jane enjoyed spending time with her family and will always be remembered by her loved ones for her love of laughter, a good practical joke and her many stories of family get-togethers. Anyone that knew her knew she loved the Lord and gospel music of which she watched many hours of her favorite group The Gaithers. She loved bowling and bowled as long as her health allowed and then she enjoyed watching family and friend as well as giving instructions when they weren’t scoring well.
