Jane E. Jenner, of 1 Whig Street, Trumansburg, passed away at Cayuga Medical Center on Tuesday, December 18, 2012 at the age of 63.

Born in Auburn on March 8, 1949, Jane was the daughter of the late Alan and Jane (Doty) Holmes. She worked as a bus driver for Trumansburg School District for 21 years prior to her retirement.

Jane would spend countless hours growing beautiful flowers of all kinds and watching the birds come and go in her garden. She was a lifelong animal lover that never saw an animal she didn’t want to adopt. Throughout the years Jane owned and cared for many cats, dogs, and lizards. Jane was an incredible artist, painting effortlessly and producing beautiful pieces of artwork. The ocean always brought joy to Jane. No matter what beach she was vacationing on, she soaked up all the sights, sounds, and smells that accompanied being near the ocean.

Jane was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother. Her door was always open for her family to stop by, an occurrence that took place frequently. Her warm and compassionate heart will be missed by all who knew her.
