Jane loved working for the Braintree school department as the front office secretary for 32 years helping many faculty and students over the years. Working for the school department meant seeing lots of folks when out running errands which always brought a smile to her face. Loved the family gatherings in the summer time hanging out at the pool and making great summer meals, was always a fun time. We are all going to miss her dearly.
