She graciously opened her home to many, helping a young refugee family get established as well as hosting visitors from afar. She holds the family record in Ping Pong tournaments.
The family would like to thank the staff and caregivers at Pelican Point, Acadian Home Health Care, and Grace Hospice who compassionately helped Jane with medical challenges.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to Mt. Carmel Elementary of Abbeville, Vermilion Catholic High School, or the charity of choice.
