I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one. I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done. I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways. Of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days. I’d like the tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun. Of happy memories that I leave when life is done.

  1. We were friends from St John’s, st Mary’s and LACC. We were in each other’s weddings and shared in the births of our children. We shared the joys of having grandchildren.50 years of Christmas wishes. There is a special reservation for you in heaven. You are my hero as you endured the heartbreak of cancer with dignity and tenacity. Love you Jane and miss you tremendously.

  2. Jane, you were such a good friend. One of my favorite people I have ever known and I know you are a angel in heaven watching over all of us. I am so glad we were able to talk on our birthdays. I am just heartbroken over this, but I️ am so amazed at how hard you fought this and the bravery and strength you had and how you were always so positive. You are going to be truly missed. I wish I could just see you one more time; as I know we all do. Hugs and kisses. Love you my dear friend. Blessings to the family and other friends of Jane. Praying that you are able to heal through this and smile when you think of all of the happy times you had with her. God bless, your old neighbors, Melissa, Ron, Sidney and Wren

  3. Janie was a beautiful person inside and out. I was so happy she came to Midland to visit Sandy a few years ago. So much like her beautiful mother. Heaven awaits her. I will never forget you cousin. You will suffer no more. Love, Felicia

  4. Oh Sweet Jane! My hero, my warrior, my friend. Not enough words to say how much we will miss you. Your heart, your face, and your love will never leave us. A kinder person, I have yet to know. Please watch over us. I feel blessed having been able to have you in our family. As we use to refer to ourselves, we were Grandma’s in common!! But also friends indeed. You will be forever in our hearts. All our Love, Margie and Joe

  5. I’m in real estate and make my living by knocking on doors of people I don’t know (yes, it can be rough). When I knocked on Jane’s door, she greeted me with a smile, was friendly to me and we had a nice conversation. She stood out to me because my interaction with her is the exact opposite of what I typically experience. 1 out of 50 door knocks people are friendly and kind. Jane was that 1. Although I didn’t get a chance to know her well, the handful of conversation I had with her over the past 2-3 years she was very kind. Always had time to talk and never made me feel as if I was imposing (although I knew I was). I wish her family the best. She is a special lady…

  6. I first met Jane through her brother when she was a teenager. I left LA after college and lost touch with the family. But in 2015 we got reacquainted and I was so taken by her positive cheerfulness in the face of the enormous challenge she and her family faced. Although we were never able to meet up in person, our phone conversations and emails proved to me that she was one of the bravest people I had ever met. So many have lost so much with her passing but I feel like I’ve lost a lot myself, even in the brief time I was able to get to know her as an adult. I will never forget her fighting spirit. She was indeed an inspiration. My thoughts and prayers are with Wayne and the rest of the family.

  7. Thank you all for the sweet words about my beautiful Mom. Everything you say is true, she truly is a special person. We will miss her tremendously. Melissa- my Mom always had such sweet things to say about you and your sweet family. Thank you for being her friend

  8. I remember the first time I met Jane early 70’s in Texas. Our husbands Wayne and Frank were in the service together. I was in church one Sunday didn’t know a sole and there in the back of the church was Jane. I thought I’ll just stand near that girl she looks friendly enough. So I stood by her and found out she was from California to and both our husbands surfed. Well that was the beginning of our friendship. Over a span of 45 years we traveled back and forth to visit. We eventually lost contact and a year ago I reached out to Jane on facebook, Then I saw the pictures on facebook my heart was saddened. I wish I could have talked to you one last time Jayne. You were such a kind, amazing person. I will never forget that day I met you! My thoughts and prayers are with Wayne, Jeff & Krissy. Your mom and I had a special bond (we were also both Italian) Until we meet again Jayne
