Jane V. Clemons, 98, of Prairie Village, KS, died on November 10, 2014 after a long illness. Jane is survived by her daughters, Nelle Garrecht (Robert) of Kirkwood, MO and Ann Sutherland (Will) of Toronto, ON; her son, James Clemons (Carolyn) of Leawood, KS; nine grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren. The family will hold a graveside service in Lincoln at a later date.
Despite living in Kansas for the last 18 years, Jane maintained her loyalty to Nebraska and her lifelong conviction that anything anywhere else had, Lincoln or Omaha had first, or better. The family thanks the staff at Somerset Health Center for the outstanding care they gave Jane for many years. Memorial contributions are suggested to Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) (casaforchildren.org), the National Parkinson Foundation (parkinson.org), or the charity of your choice.
Ann and all family,
I was sorry to read about your mom’s death over a month ago. I have been remiss in not writing something sooner. I clearly remember your mom although I have no idea when I last saw her. But growing up next door to your VanSickle grandparents and waiting for all if you to arrive for a visit are great memories. My mom is 90 and living in a retirement setting. I live about 7 blocks from where I grew up. If you are in Lincoln, I would love to visit with you. Fun to see that you, too, are a grandmother now. Again, I’m sorry about your mom. She obviously lived a long and meaningful life. Karen Jones Ward
