She played the organ and piano, sang with the Sanctuary Choir, and taught piano lessons. Jane loved being involved with music and sharing her love for Jesus with anyone she met.

Jane had many people she considered part of her family.

She loved the leadership and members of both FPC Pensacola and Word of Truth Blountstown Florida dearly.
