In Memory

Jane Pate (Hayden) - Class Of 1965

Jane Pate (Hayden)


written by her daughter... Carrie Stephens...

My heart breaks into thousands of pieces as I write this... but the world lost a truly amazing & beautiful woman today as the Lord called my mom (Jane) home early this morning. She was incredibly courageous during her battle with breast cancer and fought and tried so many things to be here with those that she loved. Ben and I find solace in the fact that she is no longer having to fight that battle, and she has found peace... that she has been reunited with our dad, is sipping on a dirty martini and probably dancing to some mo-town 💛

For those of you who knew her, who loved her... know she loved you with a huge heart. And if you want to honor her... do something for someone. Something really nice and unexpected, something that helps and makes a difference in that person's life. Those were her wishes, make a difference & do some good ✨💛✨

Lastly, I’ve attached Mom’s favorite song in the comments ... turn up your phone/speakers, and enjoy... she always did.... remember her with a smile! 💛

I love you so much, Mom... so much!!

(We apologize to those of you who have to find out this way. We don’t have everybody’s contact info, but please pass along this news to those who may care to know 💛).

Jane, was indeed a beautiful person.  My prayers are with you and your family.  I will have my next Dirty Martini in her honor.

Dear Carrie,

What a beautiful tribute to your wonderful mother.  Thank you for letting us know.  She was so proud of you and the rest of her family.  This morning I remember so many memories of your mom. I met her in the ninth grade, at North Intermediate School.  and she was a good friend all through our years at Arthur Hill, as well.

Jane was a fantastic person, even at such a young age.  I am so sorry for your loss.  She was such a good person.  She will definately be missed.
