Dear Mary Alice and Emily,

My cousin Shelley has again informed us about the passing of your mother Jane. It was only 4 months ago that I was here learning about your father. Now I have enjoyed looking at all the pictures of Jane, especially the one of the young couple up at the fire lookout! I loved reading about your final outing with your mother, Mary Alice, about her "table posse" and about proposing to your dad on their second date (!) because he was moving too slowly :-) 
It is such a monumental time when our parents die. Putting together pictures and words like you have here is not only a wonderful healing process, but it also brings joy to friends and relatives far and near. Shelley met and talked with your mom at the memorial service for you dad, and she told us that Jane said (about her new place of residence), "People never die here. They just pass." Such a great example of her rare sense of humor! I know she will never die in your memories, she has only passed on to a new dimension. Much love to you both, from me, over here in Sweden.  Distant cousin Jean

My last memory of Cousin Jane was at Sam and Katie Bryant's home (my Mom Katie Lobb) on Lake Washington in Seattle when we gathered for a Lobb-Kipp family reunion on a beautiful day in July 1995. Jane was sitting at the kitchen table with her enigmatic smile watching all the activities and people swirling around her. With understated humor and lively wit she added such fun to the mix. By living so far away I missed most of our extended family life and wish I had known Jane better. The photo gallery is a real gift for it allows me a greater peek into her life. Thank you for sharing them. Love Suzanne

My earliest memories of Jane was having dinner at her house with the Kipp family. Lo and behold, the first photo on the memory page is of that dinner!! Exactly as I remembered it! I loved Jane for her humor, her honest opinions, and her strong will! I am so thankful we both moved back to Bellingham in the last few years and months. It was such fun to reconnect, but I miss her!!

Final outing with mom

Shared by Mary Alice Benson on November 8, 2021
On September 25, 2021, I went up to Bellingham to kidnap mom away from assisted living for the day. It was a beautiful sunny day, and she said that she wanted to take a drive out into the county, so we headed up towards Mt. Baker. Along the way mom chatted about her new dining table posse, and all the antics they were getting up to. We stopped in Acme for lunch, and had a wonderful meal outside. Going home, we drove Mosquito Lake Road, and mom reminisced about college times, and when she met dad. It's shocking how long he took to do things, she had to propose to him on the second date because he just wasn't pulling the trigger! Such a nice drive, and such good company, on a beautiful day. This day was the last time I saw mom outside of a medical setting, and I will cherish the memory forever.
