What an amazing woman who loved her Savior and her family who always had a smile and word of encouragement. As my wife’s favorite aunt, she was an awesome persona bigger than life. We miss you Jane Ross and thank you for many memories you gave us.

I was so blessed to be a part of Jane's life. She was such a beautiful person inside and out. Her belief in the Lord Jesus Christ will always be a great part of her daily life and she know is seated by his side and in wonderful health again. May all her wonderful family remember her with all the love and affection she showed you while she was here on earth. Love you all.
