To Jane's family,

I never met Jane but she helped me so much with my ancestry. We met through ancestry as DNA matches and she connected me with the "Guest" side of our family. Jane even took the time to mail me some pictures that she had of my great grandmother ( Janes mother and my great grandmother are sisters!)

I am truly sorry for your loss.

Jane was a relative through the Cobb side of my family. Like Jane we are very interested in genealogy and have a passion for finding relations that we were not aware of. I didn't know Jane personally but I think we would have had much in common and could have enjoyed talking about out mutual love of family.

I only met Jane recently as we discovered we were family, descending from St. John’s, Newfoundland. She visited with me in 2019 at my home in Massachusetts and we discussed all sorts of interesting genealogy based on her meticulous research. She knew I was beginning the process and she was super helpful in sharing what she knew. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her ❤

Your Mother, Grandmother and Sister was a warm and wonderful person. I had the pleasure of working with Jane at EFHutton and successor firms. She was a loveable workaholic and always gave over 100% at work. Our days at EFH were the best with annual regional summer outings and various Christmas parties. We were a true family. I was invited to attend her retirement party although we no longer worked in the same office. I was happy to see her

Jane's family,

I am so sad to read that Jane has passed away. We both loved genealogy and we sent many emails and phone calls regarding our hobby over the years. I did get to meet her in person and have corresponded up until she could correspond no more. I am sure her beloved husband and and her son will meet her with open arms.

She was such a gentle person and I will miss her a lot.

Rest in peace dear Jane. Your work on earth is done.

God bless you all.
