Jane Hadley Lewis, 66, of Waukesha, was born into eternal life Friday, Aug. 3, 2007. She was born April 14, 1941, in New Jersey.

She also is survived by her mother, Ruth Hadley; brother, Preston (Lydia) Hadley; and sister, Priscilla (Bruce) Price. Additional survivors are sisters- and brothers-in-law, Mary and Jeff Danzis, Bill and Betsy Lewis, and Sharon Hadley.

She was preceded in death by her father, Preston Hadley, and brother, John Hadley, as well as her grandparents.
