Jane E. Bennett, 86, passed away May 23, 2018. She was born October 14, 1931 in Medford, Oregon to Frederick and Jane Starboard.

Jane grew up on Forest Creek above Jacksonville, Ore. with her younger brother Fred, and graduated from Jacksonville High School in 1951. She married Charles Bennett, Jr. January 25, 1957. She was a stay-at-home mother to her four children.

Our mother was a loving, caring, and sweet person who thoroughly enjoyed her role as a mother and housewife. During those years of raising her kids, she sewed, knitted, and crocheted many of our outfits. She was happiest with a houseful of her kids and their friends.

In 1987, Jane went to work for Red Lion in the laundry department. She continued to work for Red Lion until 2010, when she retired at age 79.

Jane is survived by her sons; John, Danny, and Rodney Bennett; daughter, Christy (Steve) Walker; two granddaughters; and four great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband in 1988.

She was a wonderful, loving wife and mother and will be deeply missed. Her kids were very fortunate to be by her side on her last two days on Earth.

There will be a private graveside service at Jacksonville Cemetery.
