I met Jane at our Monday night fusion group about 9 years ago. Jane had been a charter member of this group and everyone loved her there. She considered all of us family. She was always ready to share her love for the Lord. She loved fellow shipping with all of us. I provided her transportation to and from group meetings and was privileged to spend so much time with this amazing woman. She was and orphan at age 10, yet managed to attend and graduate from Eastern Nazarene College. She moved to Kenmore, Ohio after graduation to start a new life all by herself. She ended up in Wooster, Ohio where she was hired to work at Wooster's library. She ran the bookmobile. She married but never had any children. She loved the Lord with all her heart. She was a wonderful Pianist. She played for me when she was in the hospital recovering from a heart attack. She loved cats and had a cat named Charlie who misses her greatly. She was quite a lady! I will miss you dearly, Miss Jane.
