  1. What a wonderful person, Mary Jane was She was a long time friend of our former neighbor Jean Crook. Rest in peace Mary Jane

  2. Though I didn’t know her well, Mary Jane was one of those people who left a lasting and happy impression on my life. I was a later graduate, 1955, of the Radiology Technical school at St. James Mercy Hospital so had many opportunities to cross paths with Mary Jane. Each time seemed to be a positive experience. If something was happening in Hornell that involved us early members of that school, Mary Jane was the one who would call me at my home in Rochester to be sure I would know about it. How very thoughtful she was. I’m grateful our lives touched.
