Jane was the shoe department manager for Watson’s during its time in Glasgow. She was of the Baptist Faith and loved Southern gospel music. Her beautiful smile will be greatly missed by all that knew her. The family is very grateful and blessed to have had the Hosparus staff aiding our beloved mother’s wishes to remain in her home until her final day. She got her desire to stay home for the duration of her decline in health thanks to the excellent care of her daughter Candi and granddaughter Savannah.
