|Jane with PA member Cora Santaguida|
Usually from the favorite vantage of a corner booth shared with her friend Norm Heller, Jane was known to the group meeting weekly at Curley's Diner and returning guest poets for her sprightly smile and well-observed feedback, imparted over a glass of wine.
While not a poet, herself, Jane was especially valued as an island of serenity when the stream of conversation got occasionally heated in response to themes raised by a particular piece of writing.
Services are tentatively planned for this coming Saturday or Sunday at Lacerenza Funeral Home at 8 Schuyler Avenue in Stamford; Zoom access will be provided online for those unable to attend. Friend and fellow PA member Richard Duffee, who is Jane's conservator, can be reached at 203-278-4013 for further details.
