Over the years she was very involved in church activities, taught Sunday school, played piano, and sang in the choir. As a child of the depression, she could recycle or repurpose almost anything. She had the gift of hospitality, enjoyed serving others and making people feel welcome. She was always in the kitchen cooking and loved to entertain. Jane also had large flower and vegetable gardens. She was involved with the Gideon’s auxiliary in Milaca. Jane was proud to have been born on July 4th, and was very involved in politics in many ways, even serving as an election judge at age 84. She also spent many years researching and tracing her family tree. Jane died on Thursday, October 20, 2016 at Milaca Elim Home. She is survived by her children, Marie (Bernie) Rollene of Lake Villa, IL, Dennis (Sue) Anderson of Tulsa, OK, Tim (Kay) Anderson of Cedar Hills, TX and Beth (Kevin) McLouth of Dresser, WI; 12 grandchildren; 6 great-grandchildren; also by many other relatives and friends.
