I did not know Jane Brown but I did have a long talk with Jane on The Concord Dragstrip which Jane and Roe built together in 68 or 69 and Jane enjoyed talking about it. We talked for about 45 minutes and I don't know who got the most out of the talk Jane or me. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her. Prayers for the Brown family.

I remember Jane very fondly from early childhood into adulthood. She was a very patient Girl Scout leader for years to a rowdy group of little girls. I enjoyed running in to her around town and catching up as an adult. She was always smiling and laughing and was truly as beautiful on the inside as she was on the outside. I will miss knowing she is in this world. Many prayers to the family.

When I think of Nane I think of a grandmother who always supported the endeavors of her grandkids. She never said “That’s ridiculous” or “You won’t be able to”. Instead she would say “I think that sounds like a plan” and then do whatever she could to support us. My interests were art and music, and she bought me my first guitar when I was 14, and then later on, my first banjo. She would mail me clippings of art show openings circled in red with “this could be you!” scribbled on the side. She was always the first person to call me on my birthday. She was the first person I called when I needed gardening or baking advice, or just a quick word to cheer me up.
When I think of Nane I think of a partner in crime always looking for the next adventure, sometimes crossing an ocean to find one, and other times just driving across town. “Come on, let’s DO something,” she’d say, and we’d hop into her red convertible, and set out. As she got older and her world grew smaller, we would sit at the kitchen table reminiscing together about past travels and laughing until tears streamed and our cheeks hurt. I think that’s the lasting influence she has had on my life, to always find the laughter.
