Memories Timeline


  1. To the entire Castro family—Our prayers and thoughts are sent to all of you on this sad loss of Jane. May God heal the pain and bless your family now and always.

  2. Ernie, Shayne, Scott and Shannon. My deepest condolences go to your family. Jane was a beautiful lady who touched so many and was a rock to her family. She fought the good fight. She always picked me up when I was thinking about my mom and feeling down. May God comfort your family during this sad time.

  3. I was so sad and shocked to hear about Jane passing. She was such a great person. When I met Jane at JCPenney, she was my supervisor, she took me under her wing, trained me, promoted me, and really taught me a lot of things that I have used over the years. She became a dear friend to me and even though we didn’t see each other often, every time we ran into each other it was like no time had passed. My heart, thoughts, and prayers are with the family in this extremely difficult time. Jane, my friend, you will be very deeply missed. Soar high on eagles wings and know that I will never forget you!!

  4. My dear friend, I will miss our long talks over coffee. I have decades of great memories of our friendship. I pray that your path to Heaven was a peaceful journey. You will forever be etched in my heart. My prayers go out to your family.

  5. Shannon, my heart hurts for you honey. Prayers for strength and comfort during this difficult time. Love you forever my friend.

  6. Ernie and family
    Please accept our condolences on Jane’s passing. She was a wonderful person and Sandy and I always enjoyed the times when we got together. You are in our thoughts and have our sympathy and prayers. She will be missed by all.

  7. Our families were close as our kids played hockey together. It was a true family. I saw Jane at JC Penney and at our hockey practices, games, picnics and traveling for hockey. She was such a sweet person and could put up with my kids and that stinking hockey gear!! My husband, David, and Jane had the Rockies in common! Then our son,Jeff, kept in touch with Shayne ever since their hockey days. Our sympathy and love to the Castro family. Marilyn, Brian, Lisa, Jeff, Steve and Matt

  8. Ernie, Shannon, Scott and Shane.
    Jane was as special as they come.
    She will be remembered a long time and missed fiercely by everyone.
    I thank The Lord that I met you all and even though I will be at the service in person, please know that my thoughts are with you.

  9. I met Jane when I was in middle school, her mother and my mother were cousins. In 1981, we started working at J.C. Penney together. We got to know each other, and about our families well enough to call each other cousins. Although distant cousins, I looked up to her as if she were an older sister. Everyone we worked with at J.C. Penney loved and respected her, always smiling and working hard in her department and other places in the store. I went into the U.S. Air Force in 1984, but each time I was home on leave, I couldn’t wait to see if she was still employed at the store. The last time I saw her was in 2004, a few weeks before my family and I moved to Florida. I have thought of her often and I will miss her a lot. Rest in Peace, Jane, you were than a coworker of mine, more than a cousin, and more than a friend. God Bless You Always. You were an inspiration to me.

  10. My thoughts and prayers are with the whole family during this difficult time. Jane will be missed dearly she was a strong and caring woman. I will always cherish the memories I have of her
