(Garfield) Burnham of Abington and Arlene E. (Mason) MacLeod of Lebanon NH. Also, survived by 9 grandchildren.
Jane loved traveling, knitting, card games, puzzles, and above all children. She was a foster parent for over 35 years and adopted all five of her children. Jane was a proud mother and grandmother. She always gave the best hugs.
Jane’s dad was LCDR in the navy. She grew up as a Navy brat traveling from base to base around the country. She must have learned to love to travel because she’d been around the country a couple times and she never stayed in one place for very long, till she came back home to Mass just over a decade ago.
Early in Jane’s nursing career she assisted and delivered over a handful of births bringing new life into the world, including the delivery of her first son.
Jane attended Rogers high school in Minnesota. During her career she worked in a few hospitals as an LPN. In the 90’s went back to school for her Bachelors degree and received it from BSU. Jane worked for many years as a school/daycare nurse and retired from Brockton Day Nursery in Brockton.
Visitation will be held at the Quealy & Son Funeral Home 116 Adams Street, Abington Friday October 26 from 5 to 8pm. Interment will be private.
