VISTA, Calif.

Jane Elizabeth Coffman

Sept. 15, 1957 - Nov. 5, 2007

Jane Elizabeth Coffman (nee Wilbur), 50, passed away Monday, Nov. 5, 2007, while visiting family in Washington State. Jane was born Sept. 15, 1957, in Waukesha, the daughter of the late Raymond J. and Dorothy M. (nee Rankin) Wilbur.

Jane attended Waukesha schools until 1971 when she moved with her family to Vista, Calif., where she graduated from Vista High School in 1974.

She was a member of the New Venture Church and of the Eagles. Jane was a special person to all who knew her. She loved having and making new friends and was a friend to all she met. She was open to experiencing all life had to offer and when handed lemons, she made lemonade. Her best attribute, however, was her laugh. It was happy and contagious and made everyone around her smile. For her family, siblings and friends, her gentle heart and laughing sprit will be greatly missed.

Jane is survived by her two sons, Richard J. and Robert C. Coffman, and their father, Richard S. Coffman, all of Vista; two brothers, Joseph Wilbur and his wife Pat of Tampa, Fla., and David Wilbur of Yelm, Wash.; and her sister, Maude Anne Hefley and her husband Jim of Covington, Wash.

A memorial service will be held at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 20, at the Oceanside Pier.

Cards of condolence can be sent to the Coffman Family at 448 Hill St., Vista, CA 92083.
