Mary Jane's children gave her ten cherished grandchildren and three wonderful great-grandchildren. She is the daughter of Milton and Evelyn English, with brothers Frank, Kenneth and William. Mary Jane grew up in the Warren, Ohio area where she graduated from Bazetta High School. She and her husband moved from Warren to several cities, then retired in Sarasota, Florida. She loved to cook, paint, bowl and golf. She had many friends and loved to throw a party. When she fell ill, she and her husband moved to the St. Louis area to be by family. God blessed her with the peace she deserves, and we are grateful that she is now able to rest.
