Obituary for Jane Strange

Jane M. (Burns) Strange, 95, passed away peacefully on May 16, 2020 in Jacksonville, Florida, formerly of Brookline, surrounded by her loving family. She leaves behind her three daughters Carla (Jim) Huber, Donna (Dallas) Johnson, and Sandi (John) Davoli, 11 grandchildren, 30 great-grandchildren, and 1 great-great-grandbaby to be. She was preceded in death by her spouse, Carl A. Strange and son, Carl A. Strange, Jr. She shared her unconditional love to over 100 foster children in Pittsburgh. Jane was a devoted and faithful member of Lakewood Methodist Church in Jacksonville, Florida. Her love for God and church was remarkable. She always looked forward to church every Sunday and often volunteered to help with Sunday breakfast. Wednesday nights were shared there with her friends and family at the fellowship dinner and small prayer groups. Her hobbies included, but were not limited to, taking care of others, especially the elderly. She would sit with those in need and provide comfort and companionship lasting over 10 years. She loved to paint with her friends at the Mandarin Senior Center every Thursday. Many beautiful Christmas gifts were made here and in her art studio at home. Due to the current health crisis, visitation and services will be held privately to honor and remember the wonderful life of this remarkable and loving woman. Jane will be interred alongside her beloved husband in Jefferson Memorial Park. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Jane's honor to the Cystic Fibrosis "65 Roses" Foundation, 600 Waterfront Drive #223, Pittsburgh, PA 15222.
