I have known Jane all my life, she was like a big sister to me for many years before we both married and went our separate ways. we have only met once in the last few years, however have talked a lot on the phone. I will miss those phone calls. Amy I have some more pictures I will see if I can find some that I had not sent Jane.

If memory holds true I first got to know Jane in 1994. She was always so loving to me and my family. A good friend to my mom. Like all good mama’s I am sure she had to raise her voice every once and a while to get the attention of her kids, but I never heard it. She was always so selfless. I am forever grateful for her patience with us knucklehead kids. She always allowed us to take one of her sons (Curtis) out of the home to spend time together. Curtis we all love you brother. And to the rest of the family, Jane and the Loveless family will always be friends to this Westcott family.

“Sister Loveless”, as she was known to me, always had a smile and a wonderful laugh. She was a faithful Christian woman who served others. I’m so glad she moved her family to Abilene so I could “hang out” with my friends Steve and Jennifer. Those were great times. Thank you Sister Loveless, you will be missed.

My Condolences to your sweet family for the loss of a strong influence and love of such an incredible person.

I will forever be grateful for Sister Loveless! She raised two fine children who were a big part of my life through the teen years—Steve and Jennifer. Her smile brightened my day and her soft spoken voice was soothing to the soul.

There is an honor and medal that can be earned in the young woman organization she served in. It is very difficult to earn and at the time took four years to earn. Somewhat in comparison to an Eagle Scott with many life skills and projects. I was halfway through mine and had kind of given up, but she worked with me side by side to help me achieve my Medallion. To this day, it was one of my greatest accomplishments I take pride in.

She definitely had a great influence in my life at a very important time in my life.

She will be missed here but I know she is received with glory and honor by Jesus Christ and all her loved ones that have proceeded her. I know she will continue to assist her loved ones from beyond this mortal realm. I pray for peace for all that love and knows her, for I know that is what she would want for us. May our lives continued to be blessed from her love, influence and goodness
