Jane was born in Altoona, PA, on June 5, 1921 to Hugh and Mary Ann Reilly.
Jane retired from the former Ahlenius Company and J. Miller & Company, Fostoria, where she was a bookkeeper and sales associate. During WWII she was employed as a secretary at the Pentagon in Washington D.C. This is where she met her husband, Donald, who was serving in the military.
