May she Rest In Peace. Jane was my 7th grade American History teacher. She also had a relationship with my dad for a decade. She offered advice last year as my dad was passing. God bless her and May her soul be at peace.

Jane and I reconnected on Facebook, and our friendship has been such a blessing. She was such an encourager of my photography. Although I was saddened to hear of Jane's passing, I was happy for her to be with her sister and parents again. Heaven has a new good, sweet, and kind citizen. Sending prayers of comfort for David and family.
With Love,
Your cousin, Nancy McNutt Peevey, Encinitas, California

I’m so saddened to see this, I was a student of Ms Gray at Ellender and I absolutely Loved her. So sweet and kind. I remember she was our chaperone & sponsor teach for Closeup my senior year in 1990, it was the first time I was to fly, I was so nervous but Ms Gray sat next to me to assure I felt ok. I send prayers to her family and may she Rest In Peace!
