She performed with the Mormon Youth Choir and loved to sing! Her last travel took her to Rome with her 2 boys whom she loved dearly.

Jane Ellen raised 2 wonderful sons as a single mother; she appreciated the positive influence from family and friends who helped along the way. She was also grateful for support from the community, and always found ways to give back.

A devoted member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Jane Ellen found solace and community in her faith. She is now excited to continue her eternal life with her husband Todd whom she has missed dearly.

Carol told me about Jane’s passing. We’re so sorry. It seems like yesterday when we were all playing at your house in Pocatello. You took me on my first tripe (?) hunt. Those were fun days. I wish we could have been able to see each other more often over the years. When I think of Jane I think of laughter. Your house was always full of giggling girls.

We’ll have a joyous reunion when we get to heaven. We’ll have so much to catch up on.
Love all of you. Janice.

I am so sorry, but I thought I read that the funeral was here in Idaho. I wasn't able to make it, but I loved your mom so much! She loved all 3 of you so much! I hope good things for all of you!

Dear Tad and Kyle,
It's hard to know how to express the sadness I feel. Your Mom and I have known each other forever and have been the best of friends for 50 years. I am so sorry for her passing and pray for you both as you work to fill in the gap she has left. She loved you both so much. And I know she has great joy in being with your dad, again. Whatever you need, let me know. I'm just a phone call away. Take care and live well. Remember she only wanted th best for you. I'm so glad she's at peace now, though I will miss her so much..

Jane Ellen made a positive impact on everyone that she interacted on a regular basis. Her kind demeanor and clear explanations made it easy for students to receive the guidance they needed. She was very efficient at work and relatable. It was very easy to love her and she will be missed a lot!!!
