Jane loved to travel and enjoyed many years touring new destinations and taking cruises with her husband Jim. She especially loved the Amalfi Coast in Italy...it was one of her favorite places on earth. She loved spending time at the Southern New Jersey shore, being at the campground and going to the beach with her family and friends. She enjoyed gardening and loved pink roses. She had a passion for antiques, and all things Victorian, and spent many hours visiting antique shops with her daughter, Aimee, just searching for treasures together. She had a special knack for decorating and enjoyed designing rooms in her home around her treasures. She loved her family immensely and dedicated her life to them. One of her favorite things in life was just being "Mommom" to her grandbabies. She would do anything for them and they spent a lot of time with her growing up. She loved cooking and family dinners...and she was the best cook. She loved to make a pot of gravy, meatballs and macaronis on Sundays for the family. She loved tradition. She loved holidays, but most of all she loved Christmas and she loved when everyone was all together. She was loving, caring, kind, generous and warm-hearted. She was a good friend, wife, mother and grandmother. She was strong in her faith and devoted to the church and her love of Jesus comforted her in times of need. She loved spending time with her group of lifelong girlfriends, whom she cherished and thought of as her sisters more than just her friends...they held a special place in her heart, she loved them all very much and she knew she was lucky to have them all. She loved her little Shih-tzu, Rosie, and her "grandpaws", Oliver and Charlie too, who all miss her so very much. She was a beautiful person inside and out. She had a beautiful soul. She is gone too soon and she will be missed tremendously...more than words can ever express. May she rest in peace in heaven. Family and friends are invited to attend a memorial gathering from 9:30 am until 11:00 am on March 20, 2021 at Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish - St. Luke Church in Stratford, NJ with Mass following at 11:00am.
