I never met Mary Jane's family, but I wanted you to know that she was one of the most caring, loving, conscientious, gracious, hard-working caregivers I was blessed to have for my sister-in-law (Myrtle Canon) and most of all for my mother (Mary A. Snyder). I fell in love with her! It's impossible to say enough "good things" about her. I know she will be missed by many. You have my sincere condolences and my prayers. God Bless. Mary Ellen Canon

I was sad to read about Mary Jane's passing. Mary Jane was a dear friend to me during, as well after she was my Mother's caregiver. I will never forget her kindness and compassion. I am sure she has gone to her often praised Lord.
