Jane attended St. Bernard grade school in Wauwatosa and graduated from Holy Angels Academy. She was a graduate of the Marquette University School of Nursing where she later met Jim, a resident orthopedic physician while a nurse at St. Joseph Hospital. She was a caring person who was always interested in the lives of others, happily taking the time to talk with them. Jim would say that she could talk to anybody, anywhere, anytime, about anything. Her sense of humor and optimistic outlook on life was an inspiration to everyone.

Jane was a devout Catholic who lived her faith as a long-time member of St Mary’s Elm Grove Parish and a resident of Elm Grove for 58 years.
