She was a faithful and devoted member of Holy Rosary Catholic Church. She was a member of the American Legion Auxiliary and a member of the Daughters of Isabella. Jane worked as a nurse for many years at Holy Trinity Hospital. She will be remembered as a “perpetual nurse” – always caring for others. She adored her grandchildren and they in turn adored her! On occasion they would hide in her car in hopes of going home with grandma. In later years they enjoyed taking her out for dinner. Joseph died on December 5, 1989. Jane continued her nursing career until she retired. She lived on the family farm until her move to the Grace Home.
