She, along with close friend Terry Carrigan, founded McTerry’s salad dressing in the early 1970’s. She enjoyed supporting local organizations within the greater Philadelphia community. Jane volunteered for multiple years at the Devon Horse Show and Country fair in various roles including the Executive Committee and Chairman of the Country Fair in 1991. Jane was a member of the Central Committee of the Philadelphia Orchestra and Chairman of the Holiday Bazaar at Dunwoody Retirement community (where she most recently resided). An accomplished painter and water colorist, Jane also enjoyed tennis, skiing, gardening, bowling and most importantly spending time with her family, grandchildren (Erin, Katie, Patrick, Beauchamp, Heidi, Peter and great grandson Oliver), friends, and many dogs. A memorial service is planned for Sept 10th at 1:00 pm at the Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her honor to the Wayne Art Center and the Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church.
