David was a United Church of Christ minister in Harwinton, Chester, and Mt. Carmel, Connecticut and also at the North Congregational Church in St. Johnsbury, Vt. Jane and David had 6 children. Jane deeply loved her family and devoted her life to them. She will be remembered by all for her selflessness, unwavering support, positive attitude, and keen sense of interest in others. Her sense of humor (even in her final days) will be sorely missed. Jane loved the country and often reminisced about summer days spent in the blueberry patch, looking over the family tree farm near Mt. Greylock, and camping along the Battenkill River near southern Vermont. In addition, Jane was an accomplished seamstress and quilter, and also made hooked rugs. She participated in many church activities, such as singing in the choir, attending church meetings, and supporting her husband, David, in his ministry. She was a faithful servant throughout her years as a minister's wife. She enjoyed attending services at the Heritage Heights and Havenwood Chapels during her years in Concord, NH. Jane enjoyed fellow residents at Havenwood-Heritage Heights during her time there, as well as all the visits by her children, grand children and great grand children. Dave predeceased Jane in 2003.
