Jane was immersed in love throughout out her life. She was a true classic and glamorous woman with a passion for people, writing, reading, family, wine, fashion, kids and Christmas. Her greeting cards for all occasions are legendary. The exceptional level of detail, generous hospitality she put into celebratory events and holiday gatherings was nothing short of remarkable. Jane was either hosting the party or the life of the party. Her spirit was vibrant and elegant. She was the consummate conversationalist who could genuinely engage at every level.
