Jane B. Dewey

Jane B. Dewey of Washington Island passed away on Saturday, April 18, 2009, at the age of 77.

Jane was the beloved wife of the late Thomas R. Dewey. She is survived by her dear sister, Barbara Ellefson. Jane was the precious mother of Thomas (Jessica), David (Christine), Mark (Carrie), Scott (Katie) and Susan Evans (Rick). Jane was the grandmother of Jeana, Buck, Aaron, Alexandra, Alden, Erika and Kori. She is also survived by her best friend, Shelly Suddith; other family members and many close friends.

Jane’s sunny attitude toward life, quick wit and her ability to make everyone around her feel special will be greatly missed.

A private burial will take place at Arlington National Cemetery. A celebration of Jane’s life will take place on Washington Island later this summer.

Memorials in Jane’s name to the Washington Island Rescue Squad or the American Cancer Society would be appreciated.
