JANE always wore a happy face and had a hearty laugh. Always a pleasure to be around. She and Dick raised a wonderful daughter, Bonnie, who would come to our house to babysit. Bonnie would be riding the most wonderful horse, Gent, and we loved him just as much as the kids did. Now JANE and BONNIE have been re-united to attend to all of God's critters. RIP

Our family has many fond memories of Jane. Our mother, Janet (Podleski) Clark, and aunt, Florence (Podleski) Crowell were childhood friends of Jane and Joan's. When we moved to Estey and just down the road from the Staley's, Jane and Dick became very good friends to both of our parents. Our Dad, John Clark, really enjoyed Jane's company at music nights at the Moose, she will be greatly missed by all of us. All of Jane's family are in our thoughts and Prayers.
