time of her death.

Elsie, and one grandchild, Alexis.
Jane is survived by two sons, Glen R. Nelson of Waukesha
and Dale A. Nelson of Spokane, and her grandchildren, Heidi Downey of
Spokane, Amy Mulqueen and Joel Nelson of Waukesha, Zachary Nelson of San
Francisco, Ira Nelson of Portland, Ore., Alecia Grimes of Seattle and Eli
Nelson of Idaho. She also is survived by her great-grandchildren, Samantha
and Sabrina Downey, Sadie Nelson, Austin and Preston Nelson and Cassius
and Alexis Grimes.
At her request, no services will be held and she will be
interred next to her beloved Carl and her parents in Memorial Park
Mausoleum in Skokie, Ill., at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, the family advises donations to the
ALS Society of Wisconsin.
