My deepest sympathies to Tim, Mary, Ann and Becky, your spouses and children. What a sweet, kind, caring and beautiful soul your mother was. I will always remember her gentleness and friendly, smiling face. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her. May she rest in eternal peace. Sending love and prayers to all of you.

My sincere condolences to the family. My mother Mandy and Jane worked together for many years at the welfare office. We were sad to hear of her passing. I will always remember how kind she was. Her very warm smile and very delicious rum cakes. She will be dearly missed and fondly thought of. May GOD Bless you all
Mary Madeline left a message on February 8, 2024:
Aunt Jane, and her younger sister, Ann, were two of my favorite role models. They were smart, and kind, and well informed about the world. They were astute critics of world political and religious leaders, which made them lots of fun to sit down next to for a good chat. When the Sheeran family came to visit the farm in Merna, there were homemade cookies cooling on newspapers on the kitchen table, and roast chicken dinners with mashed potatoes and gravy at Grandma Kelley’s house. Father Donald said Mass with the family gathered around in the dining room. Aunt Jane was a much-loved member of the entire Kelley Family, all who are sorely missed.
Katy Kelley left a message on February 8, 2024:
Such a tremendous loss to our family. Aunt Jane was beloved for her positive outlook, her sharp mind and interesting conversation. She was a great cook, an avid reader and someone we could count on for sage advice. She will be missed
Miriam Tournai left a message on February 8, 2024:
Sorry for your loss. Your mom was a very special lady. She was very dedicated to her family. I can see her walking down Jackson street to go to church. My thoughts and prayers.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
Sharon (Tournai) Newell left a message on February 8, 2024:
Very sorry for your loss. Your mom was always so sweet and had a big, warm smile and so friendly when greeting me (even when she couldn't see me that well). God bless.
Carol (Ehrsam) Dobis left a message on February 7, 2024:
Thoughts and prayers for you and your family. So many memories of your mom and my mom with the bridge club.
Thomas Kelley left a message on February 7, 2024:
Sorry to not have Jane here with us, such a kind Aunt. Like her mother, Jane had a sweet tooth. Especially she loved the Franco mints. I remember playing Bridge with her around the holidays. She would bring a wrapped box of the mints and if we did not open them right away she would often suggest that playing cards really would go well with a couple of the mints…
