    I fondly remember Auntie Jane’s artistic touch. She was such a talented painter. I remember her explaining to me once that she liked to paint trees because they reminded her of the town where she grew up. Bill and I send our most sincere condolences to the Armstrong Family. Rest in Peace Auntie.

  7. I loved to watch Jane dance at our Line Dancing classes – you could see the delight in her smile as she whirled through all the steps. I loved to sit near her at church to hear her lovely singing voice, you could tell she enjoyed it so. We heard the excitement in her voice when she told us at Bible Study a few years ago that she had a new 21-year old granddaughter.
    Jane was a joy to be around … a lovely lady has left us and she will be greatly missed.
    My sincere condolences to all her family.

  11. I am truly sorry for your loss. Please be assured of my prayers. Years ago, my sister and I met Jane, for the first time, at a prayer breakfast. We were all in line and could not get in. The three of us decided to go elsewhere for breakfast. Jane was so kind to us. We really enjoyed her company. Jane made a positive impression on my sister and I. We are thankful to have met her.

  15. I am so sorry to hear of Jane’s passing. I met her at the Kingsfold Retreat last year. She was such a beautiful soul and I have warm memories of her. We were one day at the river and I found an “unusual” rock. Jane told me her very comical opinion of what it looked like and that every time I looked at it, I would think of her. Well, I did bring it home, put it in my garden and she was right, every time I saw it or someone would look oddly at it, I would think of Jane and laugh. Although we only had 5 days together, she shared many aspects of her life with us. She was an incredible women and I loved and respected her. She drew me a picture that I still treasure. She will now be in the arms of your daughter and they will have many stories to share. Jane said many times how fortunate she was to have the husband and family she had. Her family was rock and her life. She will wait happily in heaven, making other souls happy and comforted. Just as she did on earth. God Bless you all.
