A long time resident of Morristown, NJ she and her husband Tony had recently moved to Kennett Square to be closer to family. She was a graduate of Jenkintown High School (Jenkintown, PA) and the University of Pennsylvania. Jane was an avid field hockey player and official. Those who played field hockey in northern New Jersey may remember her in her official’s uniform running up and down the field hockey field with a cigarette in her hand. Later tennis became a passion and she was a part of many round robins and league play. For the last 20 years, Naples, Florida had become her home away from home. She resided in the Naples Bath and Tennis community where she played lots of tennis, walked 3 miles every morning, and enjoyed Bridge.
