  • I will always treasure the friendship that Jane and I had shared. When TIME and CIRCUMSTANCES changed that status – it did leave a hole in my life.
    Our family has moved many times with the USMC – and our times in Salt Lake City were limited. It had been a long time since Jane and I had any contact. I do regret that.
    But it does seem that her life has been full and rewarding. All of you who have been blessed by her being in your lives – KNOW that LOVE will be with you always.

    To Randy – we only met you many years ago when my sister Katy was married – and you and our children, Chuck and Dana, had such a good time at the reception. You were blessed to have had this very special woman as your Mother.

    So very sorry for your loss.

    Peace Be With ALL … Mary Smillie

  • I grew up 2 doors down from Jane and think of her often. She was always so kind and thoughtful, and up for a good conversation.
