Dear Heavenly Father, we bless you for all those Daughters who have departed this life in your faith and fear, working to fulfill your will on earth through prayer and service in the Order. May their faith and example inspire other women and girls to greater and more faithful labor for you. Grant the light of your presence and the glory of the life beyond to be her great and everlasting reward. Amen

Jane was also one of the first members of our Altar Guild, started the refreshment hour, and helped begin the Outreach Ministry, which she ran from a room in her house, until the church was built. She also was on the church cleaning team and worked in the Memorial Garden.
Jane was a very active Daughter until her health caused her to become home bound. Many people who went to visit Jane to give her flowers or serve communion, left feeling uplifted from being touched by her joy and love. We mourn her passing and miss her earthly presence as we celebrate that her eternal life with God.
