Jane was the very first person I met when I started working at Pinewood back in 1994, we immediately hit it off and continued to be friends even after she retired to Pennsylvania. We chatted daily as I drove to and from work. We shared secrets, we cried together, we gossiped and we laughed. I always told her she was the big sister I never had. I miss her. Love you Jane…….Deb
So sad to hear of Jane’s passing. Our deepest sympathy to Robbie, Jay and family. We have very fond memories of Jane and the years at the Chippewa pool.
To have known and to have loved…. May Jane be with God in heaven.
My condolences to you and your family on the passing of your Mother. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

My sincere condolences to your family. I was lucky enough to meet Janie in 1990 at Pinewood Elementary. She always greeted me with a smile and a sweet word. We got to work side by side with the dear little ones that she so lovingly cared for every day. Janie truly was a special lady and will always hold a special place in my heart.
Dear Jay, Robbie and Families,
Was saddened to learn of the passing of your mother. She was a such a warm and friendly person. I remember her very fondly and how open and giving she was to me. She gave me my first babysitting job. It was so nice to have such wonderful neighbors as your family. Remebering all of you and are keeping you in prayer.
With deepest sympathy,
Janet Haklo Laws
You and your family have my deepest sympathy
