Jane worked most of her life as a member of Teamster Local 688 at Wetterau Foods (Super Valu) in Hazelwood, MO for thirty-one years. She retired from there in 1998. After that she worked for the City of St. Charles in the water department until 2002 when her husband retired.
Jane portrayed Mrs. Claus at Christmas at St. John's Mercy Hospital and their Senior Center.
