Jane was employed by the City of St Louis for many years as a registered dietician and was instrumental in pioneering the Meals on Wheels food program for St. Louis Senior Citizens. Until her health deteriorated, she was a remarkable and creative seamstress and cook, she enjoyed painting ceramics, refinishing furniture, and playing bridge. She always gave of her time and resources to her family and to others in need. She was a role model in many ways for all who knew her.
