Betsy, Alice Sue, and George, I just wanted to tell you all how sorry I am for your loss. It's very hard losing your mom and Jane was a proud loving Mom. I never ran into her that she didn't run down the list of her family and what you were all up to. I will always remember how much I stayed there in High School and how much Jane and Mom loved each other. She was always smiling from ear to ear and I was never sitting around her and George B that she was not holding his hand. They were so loving of each other. Some of my most precious memories is there with your family. God bless you and God Bless sweet Jane. I KNOW she is in heaven and back with George B!! Love y'all

George, Betsy and Alice, Your Mother's legacy will live on in each of you. Though she will no longer be here on Earth to touch and see she will now be part of you in your hearts and minds forever. The memories you have created can never be erased. Her grandchildren couldn't have had a better role model or mentor. It has been an honor to have known your Mother and I feel blessed for being given that opportunity. She will be greatly missed by all those she has touched. I offer each of you my heartfelt condolences.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Jane Clarke's family. Jane was a wonderful woman and I have great memories of her. She was always positive and upbeat. I would love to visit her when I was at my grandmother, Louise "Lou Lou" Webb's house. She is definitely one of the finest and most gracious ladies I remember from Kenbridge. God bless.

Miss Jane, as we loved to call her, was among the very first people we met when we moved to Kenbridge. What a gracious and welcoming person she always was. She supported so many projects of our Town; her hospitality was impeccable; and she reached out to so many people when illness or difficulty touched their lives. We will miss her. With love and respect, from Stephen and Pat Israel.

Jane was an excellent adult Sunday School teacher. It was a pleasure to be in her class. Sorry to hear of her passing and our thoughts and prayers are with the family.

George, Alice Sue and Betsy: Read of your mom's passing in The Times Dispatch and wanted to extend our condolences to all. Jane Clark LIT UP any room she entered. I loved her southern drawl that made Mr. Clarke's first name three syllables! My wife, Sherry, enjoyed seeing her at Mildreds and always commented how elegant and pretty she was. Although time moves on and we don't see each other as once, I will always be thankful for the opportunity for our family friendship. You guys had some awesome parents.

To all of Jane's children: My mother, Sara Daniel, asked me to send a note to you. She sewed for Jane for many years until the arthritis in her hands kept her from doing so. She thought the world of Jane. She was a very sweet lady and will be missed by all that knew her.
