As a devoted church member, Jane took pride in participating in events and volunteering often at the former Concordia Lutheran Church which is now New Hope Community Church. She was also a member of the Lakewood Rod & Gun Club Auxiliary and a monthly “Birthday Club” with friends. Jane was always a lover of entertaining, opening her home and dinner table to any friends or family who stopped by. You could always be sure to find her cooking or baking in the kitchen.
