Jane’s role as a caregiver was a natural extension of her loving nature. She selflessly cared for several family members over the years, always stepping up to assume the responsibilities that were necessary.

An active lifestyle was a joy for Jane, who relished the adventures that came with being part of a military family. Jane was an avid University of Alabama football fan. Her love for reading allowed her to travel to worlds beyond her own, while her passion for antiques spoke to her appreciation for history.

Animals held a special place in Jane’s heart, and she found joy in their companionship and the unconditional love they provided. Her garden was a canvas of color, reflecting her love for nature and her talent for nurturing growth. Walking was more than just exercise for Jane; it was a time for reflection.
