She attended Lincoln High School, and graduated from the University of Washington in 1951, where she was a member of the Sigma Kappa sorority. Jane worked for the Washington Military District in Seattle, WA in 1951. She continued her service for the the US Government from 1951 to 1955 with the Department of State in Washington DC where she served in communications in Embassies in Bagdhad and Paris. After her government service, Jane returned home to get married and raise a family. Jane and her husband Ralph raised their children near Seabeck, WA on Hood Canal, where her children embraced life on the water and in the woods in the days when a bicycle was the most prized possession and iPhones did not exist. She welcomed her mother, Alice, into her home and her children grew close to her over the years. Jane was active in Women’s Aglow, and when her husband retired Jane signed up for more overseas adventures with a missionary group. All of Jane’s children treasured returning to her home for holidays and vacations even though life took them in different directions. Her final years were in Belfair, Seattle, and Bellevue. Jane died at peace with her friends, her family, and her God, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to Youth With a Mission or Wounded Warriors.
