Jane, otherwise known as “Nana” by her grandkids, absolutely adored her grandchildren. She loved nothing more than spoiling them with treats and hugs. She loved to cook and have family gatherings at her home. Holidays were family time.

She loved watching the Braves and Hallmark movies. But most of all she loved Jesus and spent her life living for him.
