  2. I was so sad to hear about Jane’s passing. She was such a big supporter of Special Night Out. She brought so many prizes and would help set up and then she would comeback and attend the event, I could not have done it without her help. The last time I saw her was at church and she gave me a smile as she walked by. She was just a lovely person.

  3. I’m sad to hear of Jane’s passing. I saw her a year ago when she was working the mercy meal at St. Lawrence after my aunt passed away. That was so Jane, always helping and volunteering. Jane truly was the matriarch of the York clan and I know her presence will be missed by you all. Cherish all of your happy memories of Jane and know that she is proud of the family she raised.
