From: Jennifer McCombs (Nolan) Jun 13 2018 11:20AM So sorry for your loss - I was a classmate of Janes but lost contact with her after school. I had heard that she had been through some tough times, but didn't know that she went on to become a lawyer - way to go Jane!! Rest In Peace. From: Mary Young Schwarz Jun 16 2018 10:43AM Dear Julie, Tom and Mary:
I do not know if you will remember me, but I am the youngest of John and Ida Young. You are my first cousins and I remember all of you growing up in Lewistown. Your folks came to see my husband and I here in Loveland, Colorado many years ago. I remember all of you in addition to Jane and being at your house on Broadway as well. I learned of Jane's passing through Becky Young, the daughter of Allen, my brother. Allen has passed away also and Barb is in an assisted living faciility in Canton.
I wanted to extend my heartfelt sympathy to all of you and pray that the Lord will sustain you as you mourn the loss of your dear sister My husband of nearly 65 years just passed away in March and I know the Lord will grant you a rich measure of His grace at this time as He is doing for me at this time.
With my love,
From: Sarah Jane Moore Jul 2 2018 10:54AM Dear Liz, Tom, and Julie,
You have my deepest sympathy in the loss of your dear sister Jane. I have so any memories of her smiles and energy as we were growing up in Lewistown.
Fondly, Sarah Jane Moore
From: Anthony Martin Sep 2 2018 4:13AM What can be said when a great friend is gone? We are infinitely richer for the memories, infinitely saddened by the loss.I will always remember my first visit to Lewiston in 1965; I came by bus and you picked me up in Peoria. There were so many good times, so much laughter.Sympathy is too shallow a word to share my feelings on learning of your passing.There is a deep, profound sense of loss in my heart. But the memories are so overwhelmingly warm and loving they erase the hurt.
