Sorry very sorry to learn of the loss of this motherly pillar of our community. Mrs. Countryman has been in my life since I was a child. Playing with her children in the apartment over the Anderson Cheverlot Garage was so enchanting ( climbing the stairs to the always great smelling kitchen). Her role model with the Church, my Sunday school teacher, to being the BEST Nursery School teacher to my two sons. Her love and compassion radiated from her soul. You will be dearly missed Ms. Jane.

Mrs. Countyman taught both of my boys in Nursery School. My boys enjoyed being there and when they moved on to kindergarten she was happy. I remember when they were little she always said make sure you stop by on Halloween so I can see you all. We did and we loved being there. To all her family so very sorry for your loss. May she Rest In Peace
