Jane was born January 3, 1923 in Conneaut, Ohio, the daughter of Elmer and Mary Green. She graduated from Conneaut High School (class of 1941) and Kent State University where she earned her degree in Education. She taught a generation of junior highschool students Language Arts for 22 years, retiring from Rowe Junior High School in Conneaut and was a member of the First United Methodist Church there. Before entering the teaching profession Jane was employed in the editorial department of the Conneaut News-Herald as the Society Editor. She also will be remembered as a former bookkeeper at the Conneaut Creamerie Company. She enjoyed maintaining friendships with her fellow employees. Jane moved to Charleston, SC in 1995 to be near her family. She became an active member of John Wesley United Methodist Church where she was a chairman of her woman's circle. She enjoyed her family, friends, reading and traveling. Also, Jane enjoyed living in the historical community of Charleston and visiting the nearby beaches. She was a devoted and loving mother, grandmother and friend. Jane's grandchildren were young when she relocated, and she was lovingly involved in the highlights of their lives, never missing a ballet recital, sporting event or a family celebration.
