Jane went to the University of Northern Colorado, where she got a B.S. Business Administration, and a minor in French and Russian. Jane was a consultant in Advocacy and political affairs where she held the roll as Assistant V.P. Jane was also in public relations for the Public Service Credit Union.

When Jane had the free time, she would volunteer at The Denver Zoo, Denver Botanic Gardens, and Habitat for Humanity.

Jane was incredibly devoted to her dog, Jouie. Jane was a loving daughter and friend to many. She was an avid skier and lifelong Democrat. She “Loved, Loved, Loved” the Highwaymen, Waylon, Willy, Kris Kristofferson, Elton, and every version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow.

In lieu of flower please donate in Jane’s honor at The Denver Zoo (Elephant Fund), and The Dumb Friends League.

“From too much love of living

From hope and fear set free,

We thank you with brief thanksgiving

Whatever gods may be

That no life lives forever;

That dead men rise up never;

That even the weariest river

Winds somewhere safe to sea.

~ Aldernon Charles Swinburne, The Garden Of Proserpine~

Memories Timeline


  1. To Martha and her family,
    Its been 45 years since I’ve seen Jane. But, I remember her. Beautiful and smart like Martha.
    My thoughts are with you, your mom and sister and family.

  2. Although I hadn’t seen Jane in a while, I have vivid memories of Jane and all of her friends at misc. get togethers, bbq’s, the time we spent together in Grand Lake, etc.. I’ll always remember her wonderful laugh and quirky sense of humor. Jane was so much fun to sit and talk and laugh with. She was so smart and beautiful. She is loved and will be missed by so many.
    Martha and family- My deepest condolences. May Jane rest in peace.
    God bless you all,
