    Jane was born in Williamson on April 29, 1923, the daughter of Howard and Leona Crocke VanHolde. Until graduating from high school, she loved working on the family farm. She was very proud of her Dutch heritage. While working at Garlocks in Palmyra, she met and married Robert Mierke on February 1, 1947 and moved to Lyons. She loved the outdoors, gardening and maintaining the family home. Her greatest joy was her family, and a pot of coffee was always ready for her many friends and neighbors. Her smile and positive attitude will be missed by all who knew her.
    Survived by three daughters, Phyllis (John) Paliotti of Lyons and Elaine (David Matthews) Mierke and Nancy (Douglas) Bernhardt, both of Palmyra; three grandchildren, Vanessa, Ryan and Justin (Megan); great-granddaughter, Carolina; sister-in-law, Dolores VanHolde; nieces and nephews. Predeceased by husband, Robert; brother, Eugene VanHolde; special sister-in-law, Mary Mierke.
    Arrangements were made by Boeheim-Pusateri Funeral Home, Lyons.
