Jayne was passionate about nature and animals and had the privilege of sharing this passion with hundreds of girls in the Great Blue Heron Girl Scout Council where she was a troop leader and headed several projects. One of her most favorite projects was instructing troops to create finger puppets for children in the hospital. She shared her love for travel when she oversaw trips to the National Girl Scout Center West in Ten Sleep, Wyoming – affectionately referred to as the Wyoming Trek, which was an adventure for scouts in high school. She and her husband Don were instrumental in obtaining the property for Camp Winding River in Dodge Co. Jayne was also an active member of St. Matthias Episcopal church, where she taught Sunday school and was on the Altar Guild. She loved music, singing and classic old movies. Her most favorite memory throughout her life was the time she spent at her grandfather Pfister’s home, Norwood, on Lower Nashotah Lake.
She is survived by her children Richard (Susan) Lubnow and Sara (William) Rice. Grandchildren Fredrick (Nancy) Lubnow, Christopher Lubnow, Laura (Nicholas) Fairbanks, David (Emily) Rice, Christopher Trimble and Jason (Ashlen) Trimble and 4 great-grandchildren.
