Jane worked as a custodian for Jayhawk Linn Unified School District 346 schools for many years and loved her job. She considered so many of the staff family. Jane had a genuine concern for the people in her life, helping in anyway she could. Janie, as she was affectionately known, and John were members of National Street Rod Association (NSRA) and involved in car shows all over the area and loved meeting new people. Jane enjoyed taking care of others and while doing so treated them to many delicious meals and treats. She made the best Christmas candy ever, but her best kitchen creation was her wonderful cheesecake.
