Mary Jane was dedicated to the betterment of young people. She graduated from Kent State University and was an Early Education Specialist. She loved and dealt in primitives and early American antiques. Her house was open to all. She was a member of the Trinity Cathedral and enjoyed the splendid simplicity of the cathedral. She is home with her God.

In lieu of flowers or other materials, the family is requesting that contributions be made in her honor to: Michael J.

Box 780, New York, NY 10008-0780, or Talk about Curing Autism (TACA), 3070 Bristol St., Suite 340, Costa Mesa, CA 92626.
Mary Jane is well described in this quote by one of her idols and someone with whom she shared such qualities as elegance and unwavering strength, Katherine Hepburn: "Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get — only what you are expecting to give — which is everything. What you will receive in return varies, but it really has no connection with what you give. You give because you love and cannot help giving." Mary Jane's family and all who knew her are so blessed by the love she gave. Arrangements by Stroud-Lawrence Funeral Home of Chagrin Falls.
