Jane recently moved to Billing to be closer to her son and family and was looking forward to moving into the new home they were building.
Jane enjoyed reading, solving sudoku puzzles, watching Hallmark movies and singing with the Sweet Adelines / Electric City Harmony for several years. Most importantly, Jane enjoyed visiting with friends and family.
Jane worked as a bookkeeper for several businesses throughout her career and retired from Hamilton Misfeldt and Co. in 2006.
