At 100, Jane is witty, energetic, and a Bingo Queen. She is, in every sense of the word, marvelous.

She says turning one hundred snuck up on her. One minute, she is sputtering along the streets of Hamilton in her Dad’s Model A Ford. The next, she is sitting surrounded by laughter and love from generations of family members celebrating this major milestone.

“I’m going to have to move out of my room into the hallway,” she jokes. She anticipates all the flowers and cards from well-wishers won’t leave much room for her to sleep.

The city has changed a lot has she’s grown up, but Jane’s has always remained. She met and married the love of her life, Wally, in Hamilton and helped raise two boys here. She poured her heart into this city and volunteered at St. Raphael’s church until she was well into her eighties.
