Jane, you will be missed by your family and friends. You lit up a room when you walked in. Your sense of humor was contagious. I will always be amazed at how you so tenderly took care of your family and others. I remember taking the city bus down High Street with our mothers after school and going to ballet lessons at Stella Becker's studio. Our mother's used to sneak out from watching us and go to the main Lazarus store across the street. They thought they were so clever, but we noticed the Lazarus bags on the way home! I will always be thankful for how you helped your "Aunt Alice" and "Uncle Tommy". They loved you so! (and me, too.) Deepest sympathy to your family for this great loss from the Thomas family.

What a woman...a human sparkler! When I'd arrive for an appointment at Max Sports, she was so funny, warm, and wonderfully off-beat that she could perk me up even if I'd been having a horrific day. I always looked forward to seeing her! My deepest condolences to her family and friends.

Oh my dear Janie
We will all miss you

Several years ago I joined the Catholic Church. At the time of my confirmation at Our Lady of Victory, my parents were unable to attend the ceremony. Your mother being the angel she was, decided I had to have family there for such an important occassion. She & Debbie Long came & sat through the 2 1/2 hr ceremony that ended around 10:30PM. You have no idea how loved I felt that night. Debbie & your mom gave me a lovely crucifix that hangs in my bedroom to this day. A beautiful reminder of two very special friends. My husband & I will keep you all in our thoughts & prayers. Debbie T.

What more can one ask in life but to be loved by so many people...Janie touched so many lives with her sense of humor, wit and genuine love of life-my thoughts and prayers are with you all at this difficult time. I am so blessed to have known her and will miss our "lunch buddy and partner in crime" in our MAX family.

Jane was one of the most joy filled people I have ever met. She freely shared that happiness with everyone she met and made us all feel like we were on top of the world. She will be missed.

The reception area of MAX Sports Medicine looks exactly the same, but it simply isn't and can't be. Without Jane's exuberance, infectious grin (the only kind of infection encouraged there....), and downright silliness eased the tension and anxieties that go with any doctor visit.

One thing that impressed the heck out of me was that, as she was yocking it up with one patient, she was sorting and organizing files at the speed of sound.

She was one super-special, irreplaceable lady. It warms my heart to know that she has been a part of so many lives. I'll always treasure my memories of her beautiful, delightful spirit.
