Jane, the daughter of John and Suzanne (Bauer) Schild, was born Sept. 16, 1924 in Chicago. She was a 1942 graduate of Washington Catholic High School. Jane was united in marriage to James P. Crane on May 8, 1947, and he preceded her in death on Dec. 7, 1964. She was a life long member of St. Simon’s Parish, and a member of Tri-Kappa.

She is preceded in death by her siblings, Laura B. “Billie” Schild, SueAnn Howton and Robert A. Schild.

Jane will be remembered for her hobbies of candle making and knitting (her enjoyment) as well as for her never ending patience, sense of humor, and all-around cheerfulness.
