I will always cherish the fond memories I shared with Jane for over 40 years. She was my dearest friend and mentor when we worked together at City Hall in Joliet, Illinois. We remained friends after she moved back to Nebraska. She was an amazing , considerate and sincere person. My deepest sympathy to Ray, Nicolai & Tatiana, the lights of her life. You were her inspiration which helped her to be so brave through her illness.
“LAURA” JANE, Rest In Peace , Dear Friend - - ❤️ Pat Greenan “Trish”
