Jane had a zest for life, an engaging smile and a welcome embrace for everyone who came to her home. Jane loved gardening, cooking cabbage rolls and perogies, knitting mittens and blankets, roller skating and dancing in her younger years. She had unshakeable faith in the Bible’s promise of a resurrection to life here on earth and she enjoyed sharing this hope with others.
