  1. Jane was a wonderful, wonderful lady. She was always welcoming and always with a smile. She was the godmother of my daughter and was always there for her. We had many fun times with her over the years. When visiting her at the Manor, she was always “doing” something. No grass grew under her feet! You certainly have deserved a great reward in heaven. God will take good care of you.

  2. Felicia & Family,
    It’s wonderful that your Mom had 96 wonderful years. Cherish the memories you have with her. Keeping you in our thoughts & prayers. So sorry for your loss.

  3. John …. I’m sorry to hear about your mom‘s passing. She was a great lady, had a great family and a great 96 year runner life.

    I’ll try to catch up with you this summer …

  4. Jane was a lovely lady. I enjoyed our time together at the Hornell Area American Red Cross. She always had a smile for everyone & was always there to volunteer in one way or another through the years.
