In Memory of Jane
My sister-in-law, Jane Parker, died this week from pancreatic cancer. She was 63 and was a shining light to those who loved her. Her light was only extinguished after she fought valiantly to survive. We were very proud of her. She had started and continued to support a program in the Tampa area which provided support services to women who were expecting a baby which was already dead or likely to die right after birth. Jane helped hundreds of women deal with this tragedy. For most of her life, she worked as a nurse. She also worked with women whose pregnancies were at risk and helped many of them successfully bring healthy babies into the world.
Jane was an enthusiastic and loving mother, grandmother, wife and sister, as well. She and her husband loved sailing and spent many days on the ocean. She had an incredible zest for living. Her tireless efforts on behalf of her family and others provided her with great joy and satisfaction. She was an inspiration to us and she will be sorely missed.
