What fun times we shared in the past at the Tuesday ladies 9- hole golf group in Blenheim. Jane was a lovely kind soul with patience galore for the poor golfer that I was. I will remember her smile forever. Please accept my condolences.

Our sympathy to your family as you celebrate Jane's life. We have very fond memories of our dear church friend. Jane is remembered for her personal kindness to our family and her smile. This picture of her that you have chosen captures it perfectly. God bless you and keep you.

My sympathy to Jane's family. I knew Jane and Vern well as they attended New Scotland United Church and lived not far from me near Rondeau. I visited her often in the Village and always admired her great effort, smile and her positive attitude. I loved her quilts she so proudly displayed. May all your memories bring you smiles and comfort always.

I first met Jane through her daughter, Shirley. Shirley and I taught at H.A. Tanser in Chatham and became good friends. Doug, Liz, Andrew and the rest of the family, please accept my sincere condolences. She will be missed.
