Jane was born on October 21, 1944, in Louisville, Georgia to Clayton E. Tanner and Myra Amerson Tanner. She lived the majority of her life in Jefferson County. She was a homemaker and eventual owner and operator of The Hair Affair, a beauty salon next to her residence. Jane loved being a homemaker and caring for her family, planting, and harvesting a garden, and sewing. She also enjoyed old Westerns, Walker Texas Ranger, reading, and coffee. For several years she attended the First Baptist Church of Louisville and found her comfort working in the kitchen whenever help was needed.

She is survived by her daughter, Lucretia “Tesie” Bowles (Mark) and her son, Heyward “Sonny” Wells, III (Teresa), special niece, Karyn Grace Parker (Brent), special nephews, Clay Grace (Salena) and Robbie Grace.

Her great grandchildren, Henry Kitchens, Haddon Kitchens, Dillon Grace, and Amelia Wells held a special place in her heart.
