Jane Frey, age 91, passed away peacefully at the Valley Hospital, surrounded by loved ones, after a brief illness.
Jane was born and raised in Glen Cove NY, with her sister Lola, who passed away in 1999. As her dear sister once said, “We’re a capital couple, Janie and I, she paints the
earth, I polish the sky”.
Jane graduated from Davis and Elkins College, and received her BSN in nursing from Saint Luke’s in NYC. Her career began in Dr. Kaplan’s office in Potsdam NY. After moving to Suffern NY to raise a family, she worked at Rockland County B.O.C.E.S as a nursing instructor and held various positions at Good Samaritan Hospital in Suffern; an ICU nurse, T5 and in the nursing education department. She retired in 1997.
Jane enjoyed many friends over the years and was an inspiration to all. Her piano playing, which she began when she was 4 years old and continuing until her passing,
brought so much joy to her and those who loved her. There are many wonderful memories of her musical talent. She also had a very good sense of humor, kind and
generous heart and was always the peace keeper. She always wanted to talk about you and not herself. She could listen to stories about her grandchildren for hours, as she
loved them dearly.
Loving and devoted Mother to Kenneth, Theresa and Peter. Cherished Grandmother to Gregory and Gabriella. Mom and Grandma will be dearly
missed. Wonderful memories will be shared always keeping her forever in our hearts.
