Shaz Atwell has contributed these remarks: "Our Hearts are heavy and we are so sad to say goodbye to our beautiful friend Jane Smith – the most loving, giving, caring, compassionate and loyal friend anyone could ask for. Jane put everyone ahead of herself. She loved us all deeply; was prouder of her family than you could imagine; treated everyone with respect and took care of us all in a way that only she could, never forgetting a birthday, an anniversary or a special event. Her infectious laugh made us all happy. Her cheerful demeanor made us want to be with her. She loved being surrounded by her friends and family and she took every opportunity she could to gather us together.Aunty Jane, we hope that you know how much we love you and just how much we are going to miss you. Our lives without you are forever changed. Rest peacefully, dear friend."

Mikia Eatman added this: "I loved this woman. Such a warm and welcoming spirit. I think I stopped in admin to chat with her daily. And, with a smile, always took a few minutes away from her work to share, listen, laugh or give a great big hug. To "mother". She was a part of what made frost valley home. Rest in peace, Jane."

Fred Wasiak adds: "Jane was the voice of Frost Valley and a constant bowl of sunshine!  'Good afternoon... Frost Valley YMCA, this is Jane, how may I direct your call?'"
