Knew Jane for many years starting at Marywood Country Club, and Riverside Country Club. She was a good friend for 50 years of me and my mom and dad.Wb4GU

We are so very sorry to see Janie has passed away. She and Clyde were our friends since back in the 60s. I have thought of her often throughout the years even after we moved from Battle Creek. She was a wonderful friend.

I haven't seen Jane in years but we used to golf together at Marywood Country Club years ago. Janie, Clyde, Ron & Jackie Geouque, Marv & Sue Smith, Dan & Annie Ure, myself & husband, Leonard & Marie Schneider all used to go on golf trips around Michigan. We always enjoyed those times. I'm so very sorry for your loss. Janie was a great nice lady.

Debbie and Family,

So very sorry to loose a great lady. One with open arms when needed - always there to bring a smile. Her home was always filled with love and laughter. We were honored to have her as our aunt.

Take care, Love always, Linda and Jerry

What fond memories of Jane--where to begin? Jane's daughter, Debbie, and I have been best friends since 2nd grade. Debbie's house was always the "fun house" to visit. Jane would make us BLT's for lunch--quite a luxury in 1960! We would go on scavenger hunts and have sleepovers. Never a dull moment!
Jane was always a good "listener". She approached life looking at the bright side of things. As an adult, I enjoyed visiting with Jane whenever we attended social events. Jane will always have a special place in my heart and memories!
