Biography

Jane was born in 1905 and named for her grandmother Jane Elliott. She is the daughter of Glenn Spencer and Esther Abbott.[1]

Jane graduated from the University of Ohio and taught school for twenty years.[2]

During the span of 1934-1936, Jane worked with the Iowa State Planning Board in Education. During this time, the whole school system of the state was reorganized.[3]

After retiring from teaching, Jane took up nursing as she was trained in that field also.[4]

Jane and Howard helped to raise foster children, teenage children who needed homes. Some stayed with the couple for a few years, while others stayed longer. Three kept in touch with her and visited after raising families.[5]
