Jane was an extraordinary reader of important literature and an expert interpreter of the written word. She was an enduring inspiration and ardent supporter of the Maywood Public Library Morning Book Club. Of her many interests, she was a talented knitter belonging to online groups where many of her designs were exhibited. Her major delight, however, was her family. She will be sorely missed.

To the family of Jane Fink - Please accept our deepest sympathy at the loss of Jane. We lived across the street for 24 years before moving to Massachusetts. Jane loved gardening and taught us a few things along the way. She will be greatly missed.

Jane was more then a neighbor to us. She will be greatly missed for her kind heart and knowledge she was free to share. While we were both ill we enjoyed many pots of her delicious soups or as she called them sympathy cookies. We are fortunate we got to know her and are better for it.

Will always remember Jane so fondly at our book discussions and author luncheons. Great, great lady. Will be out of town 7/10 but will be thinking of you.
