Jane was born July 28, 1926, daughter of Mr and Mrs. Dean Thompson.

Jane was a cultured and well traveled lady, living in several different states in America. She was born in the state of New York. When she was 3 their family moved to Florida, and she eventually moved to Sheboygan. There was dance studio that had an opening in the area. Along with teaching dance she also worked for the Kohler Company while living in the American Club. This is where she met the love of her life, Norbert C. Hein. They would gather in the recreation room for TV and Norbert had an eye for Jane. They married on June 18, 1966 at the Catholic church in Kohler and were celebrating their 54th year of marriage.

After the couple was married, they decided to move on and go west. They lived in Salt Lake City, Utah; Seattle, Washington; and Sacramento, California, to name a few. Jane had various jobs along the way working in factories and retail. After the couple had retired they decided it was time to go back to the original place they called home and settled in Kiel for the last 22 years.

Jane had a real niche for sewing and could make just about anything. Dancing also was a pastime favorite and she was a dance instructor. Jane loved to be outside and be active. In her youthful days she enjoyed downhill skiing, other times she could be found walking around her neighborhood and was known for picking up trash and keeping the streets clean.

Jane was a caring person who was easy to talk to, liked being around people, and helpful wherever she could be.
