Jane loved to travel, and had visited every province in Canada, several states in the United States as well as Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and Central and South America. She especially enjoyed cruises, both river and ocean. Jane worked in Home Care Services for 20 years, starting out with three seniors and ending up with at least 15 clients (all by word of mouth). She enjoyed reading, especially historical fiction, playing cards, and getting together with family and friends. Jane was one of those special people who reached out and helped them in any way she could.
