Jane lived a full life and loved traveling, savoring sweets, shopping, listening to music, dancing, playing bridge, chatting with animals of any kind.  Most of all she truly enjoyed being with people, especially her numerous dear friends and family.  She had a welcoming smile and warm light in her eyes for everyone.
