    Aunt Jane was a lovely woman gifted with a smiling face and a heart that never stopped giving to those she loved! In the face of all the curve balls and adversity that life would ever throw in her direction, she remained optimistic and was the rock upon which her family was built! Her smiling face will be missed! But, her family legacy will live on!
