Jane was such a good friend. How I loved having her in my stained glass classes. She made so many beautiful things for her children through the years. She and Barbara were two who always came together and we shared many years together. I loved visiting with her and she loved our little family every week. First time I visited her on their farm I got lost coming home. She always laughed and said no one could get lost in Rinard but I did. Sympathy to all her family. She was loved my our class and have missed her so much the last few years. Rip

Was so sorry to hear of Jane’s passing. I am writing this for my Mother Barb Etheridge. Jane, Barb Coble, Marge Vinson and my Mom all did stained glass together. They became fast friends and went on trips together. One such, they loaded up in Mom’s Jeep and traveled to Arizona and New Mexico. They thought they were old enough they didn’t have to let any of their kids know what was going on. Mom and I are sending prayers, much love and hugs.
We are so sorry to learn of Jane's passing. For many years she was a foundation of the Warren reunion and matriarch of her branch of the family tree. We appreciate and have not forgotten her attendance several years ago at one of Aunt Genny Richmond's later birthday dinners. We are grateful to have known Jane. She will live on in the hearts and memories of those who loved her. RIP, Jane Warren.
