Online condolences may be expressed to Jane’s family by visiting her obituary at
her sister in law Marie Dailey Hass told me that Mae Jane was the baby of the family. she had Shirley Temple curls and would perform Shirley Temple songs at street fairs with her older sister Helen on piano. I met her at a Dailey Reunion...I remember her great big smile. The obit calls her "Jane" but Marie, Lije, & Kevin all call her "Mae Jane."

I came across this post while search the web for information about my passion which is creating art from vintage hankies. I noted that Mae was a collector as well. My mother's name was May also.
Anyway, if any of you are looking for a nice way to preserve her memory, please check out what I do with vintage hankies.
My sympathies for your loss,
