Club Members on the passing of Jane

From Our President:
The Club is deeply saddened by the unexpected death of Jane Peet, one of our long time members and a member of the Club’s Board: the Editor of the Nachrichten Newsletter. Jane passed away February 14 while waiting to have a surgical procedure. We have few details at this time but we understand that she will be cremated and her ashes scattered at sea as she wished. A memorial gathering will be held in the next few months at their home. Their daughter and some close friends from the Club are helping her husband, Jim, to cope with this tragedy. Those who knew Jane know that she was a real sparkplug, always up, always helping, always cheerful and fun. Life will not be the same without her. We extend our deepest sympathies to Jim and to the other members of her family.
Philip Grant, President

From Judy Lafferty
It's difficult for me to fully grasp the lose of Jane. I'll cherish the memories of the wonderful times I spent with her. She had a way of making everything fun with her happy personality and her smile. I will miss her so very much. My thoughts are with Jim and her family and many friends that will miss her as well. Judy Lafferty

From Sally Lash:
I'm still not processing the whole thing. I chatted with Jane on Tuesday and had a Jacque Lawson Valentine from her on Wednesday morning. When Ann Sands called on Thursday, I couldn't believe what she was saying. This will leave a hole for the club in many, many ways.

From Dot Steeves:
Words cannot express the instantaneous sense of loss and disbelief I felt upon hearing that the cheerful voice of our dear friend Jane would no longer be heard. Many thoughts return after a friendship of many years and happy times spent together at GSC events where Jane unfailingly would come up with some outlandish costume, T-shirt, jewelry or gadget that would make everyone laugh. Jane was such a help to me after Jim's passing, nothing was too much for her to undertake. Condolences to my longtime friend Jim, Jill, and Jane's entire family.

From Racquel Ecamilla:
There are no words to describe the deepest sadness Joe & I feel for the loss of our dear Jane. We saw her last a week ago at weight watchers meeting and she was so looking forward to Valentine's Day. Joe & I send our deepest Sympathy to Jim, the family and to all GSC Club members who had the pleasure to know her and work with her. RIP Jane.
With all our love:
Joe & RC

From Alicia McVicker:
Dear friends, I have lost my best friend. Jane was my sunshine everyday. All of us have lost a friend that was always willing to help us, no matter what, she always made time for us. She would call everyday to check on Larry. I will never forget all the good times we had, so many laughs. I love her so much, will forever hold her in my heart.
All our love to Jim and family.
Alicia and Larry McVicker

From Benno and Gisela Rayhrer:
The news of Jane's passing hit us hard as we lost a very good friend and a marvelous person to work with for the Grindelwald Club. I plan to put everyone's comments on this webpage.

From Pamela Jensen:
There will never again be such a vibrant best friend like Jane. She was such an undersranding, unselfish friend who always brought fun in all she did. Much Love is extended to her wonderful husband Jim, Daughter Jill.
