In younger days, Jane was a bank manager, a Camp Bright Star cook, nurse, and mom to a lot of summer camp kids that missed their parents. More recently, Jane was a devoted volunteer at Angels in the Attic, a hard working gardener and yard perfectionist, proud grandmother, and still a great cook!
Jane enjoyed spoiling her grandchildren with her baking, as she was always baking, and whatever activities they wanted to do. She enjoyed making crafts including growing her own gourds to create beautiful bowls, making quilts, learning how to make shaker wooden baskets and even painting. She loved a craft show.
