Jane was and will continue to be in many hearts. I'll never forget our earlier days of organizing in Ripon, WI. We've shared many talks. She always took the time to truly listen to people, with much care and concern. Jane sincerely cared about people, she cared about their families. Her love for Greg and her family was enormous. What a special person Jane was.

I work 6 years with Jane from the management side of the business, and over the years, she made me rethink many aspects of big buisness and how we need to keep the people in mind. She was a wonderful woman with a sharp wit and strong conviction for the better good for all. Keep in mind that Jane has not really passed, just that her body has given way to allow her to move onto the next deminsion of life. Her soul and energy moves on to better things. I do wish everyone my sincere sorry to Jane's family and friend. Take care and god bless

Jane, I had the privilege of working with, learning from and becoming your friend during our time together on Owatonna and beyond. Your strength, skill, humor, integrity, determination, and generosity made me a better organizer and person. Those of us who had the honor of working with you and becoming friends will carry on your mission. We will rededicate ourselves to that which you stood for: making this world more just, fair, and inclusive. You live on in our hearts and our work. You also brought Greg into our lives. We will continue to cherish him and his friendship. You left us too soon. I miss you already, my friend. On behalf of Mary, Abraham and Lena Rose, may you rest in peace. Love, Ben

This is a really sad afternoon. I was unable to get to the funeral, but my thoughts were silent in remembrance. Though very sad that she is gone, I'm grateful to have known Jane for so many years. Everyones lives she passed, she touched. She truly will be missed but may her goodness, kindness, and beliefs carry on in those she loved.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.
