Mom - You will be missed with a huge gap in my heart that will never be the same. You taught me all there is to know about resilience and determination, courage in the midst of all kinds of adversity, but overcoming it all with hope and love and kindness! I am proud to have been your daughter. I know you are in God’s loving arms and that gives me peace. You did so much for others as a nurse and served in so many selfless ways! That’s how it’s supposed to be! I hope to follow your example.  Your sense of humor was one-of-a-kind with your keen Irish wit. We had some great laughs over the years over the most random things and I will miss that!

I want to send my deepest condolences. Not only was Jane our neighbor for 11 years but I knew her when she would come into the office. She was so sweet. Always worried about the growth of her tree into the neighbors back lawn and would ask my son to come help trim it up. Everytime I would see her she’d ask how the kids were doing or she’d yell over the fence to check in on us. She would always tell me a new story each time we spoke. Rest in peace Martha and God Bless to your family.

I met Jane while working at Sinclair Pharmacy. She was an absolute joy to wait on and talk to. She called me Franny which I just loved. I miss her so very much, always a smile and a happy voice. A great lady.

I was so thankful to have met Jane while working at WCCH.  When she retired our family was fortunate to have her come each day and help our mother with her daily needs.  They became friends and enjoyed each others company.  She was very proud of her home and her antiques.  My sympathies to her family.

To my beloved Mom, thanks for all you did to make me feel loved.  You gave me an appreciation for history through our antique hunting.  You gave me and my kids so many laughs over your one liners.  Most of all you gave me love and support through the good times and bad times.  I will always love you and the special relationship that we had.  I am blessed that you were my Mom.  Rest in peace
