I will miss that smile. Mary Jane was one of the loveliest people I have ever known, Those same attributes I have always seen in her Son Jeff. Always a smile and warm greeting. I worked with her Brother Tom at Menards who was also as warm and humble as his Sister. She will be in my memories list as one that I will look forward to meeting again. My condolences to Jeff and Tom who I knew and to the rest of the family for your loss.
Jane was one of the first neighbors we met in our neighborhood when we moved to Three Rivers right before the pandemic shut-down. She was meticulous about landscaping, which was awesome, as our properties were back-to-back and we loved her flowers throughout the seasons. I miss talking to her and Jeff every day since she moved to Portage. May she rest in peace in the arms of the angels.
I hope you finally get to be a cowgirl, NeNe! You’ll make a good one! I love you forever, and oh how much you will be missed.
Aunt MJ, I will miss your kind spirit. You always greeted me with a big smile. I know you are enjoying one of Grandma’s famous tea parties with my mom!
Maryjane was the first of Jon’s siblings that I met. She was always smiling & loved her family. Her family is in my thoughts & prayers.
Myrna my friend. Please accept my prayers for peace from our Heavenly Father. My sister graduated with MaryJane and spoke highly of her. Hugs & love to you from Florida 💜🙏🏻
I’m very sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. She was really nice and friendly and that’s probably where you got those traits. I miss seeing (and picking on) you since I retired. Hang in there during this trying time. I’ll be thinking of and praying for you and your family.
Maryjane will be missed she was a dear sweet lady. I will always remember her kindness an offer for a ride to my home one snowy day I was walking home. She smiled an always made others know the love of Jesus
