Jane was also an active member of Trinity Episcopal Church, helping to run the rummage sale and driving Evergreens residents on shopping expeditions.

Predeceased by her husband Bill, Jane is survived by her daughters Joan A. Cecil and Linda A. Cecil (Jeffrey Gola) as well as her grandson Sean A. Cecil-Collins.
