Jane was my neighbor at Union Grove Lake & what a wonderful lady she was. Really enjoyed talking with her. RIP sweet lady
To Terry and family,
As a teen, I thought your mother was perhaps the strongest woman I knew! Her "stamp" on all her children was excellence -- and it showed! We are sorry to hear of her death.
