  5. Jane volunteered in my Kindergarten classroom at Seth Haley in West Haven many years ago. She was such a breath of fresh air when she arrived every Tuesday to work with my students. I so looked forward to her visit each week because she was such a calming force for me and my young students. She did whatever I asked her to do with a smile! I so admired her kindness, pleasant and cooperative nature, her skills working with very young children, and her sense of humor. She was a real class act and I will never forget what a help she was to me. Rest In Peace, Jane. I’m sure you’re surrounded by lots of little kiddies!
    My deepest condolences to her family.
