Jane was a loving and devoted mother affectionally known as Nana “Nanny;” she taught her children to forgive and love unconditionally. She was a long-standing member of Fairborn Baptist Church and a devout Christian who shared her love for Jesus with her family and those she met. Jane was also known for her great cooking, quick-witted humor, great dance moves, and especially her comforting smile. In her free time, she loved vacationing with her family in Tennessee. The most important aspect in her life was her beloved family, and she will be missed by all who knew her.
