Jane Hageness


Jane Marie Hageness, 61, of Eau Claire, went to her Lord on Monday, January 20, 2003, at Luther Hospital. She was born on April 7, 1941, in Eau Claire, the daughter of Marvin and Verna (Buchholz) Hageness.

She was a happy child who did well in school and enjoyed playing the violin when she was young. She was employed by Eau Claire Sand and Gravel briefly after graduating from high school. Jane was a very active member of First Lutheran Church, participating in choir and many church activities. She was very creative and enjoyed making crafts. Many of her creations were featured during various church activities and celebrations. Jane was asked by the members of the Senior Citizens Center to make and distribute audio tapes to the visually impaired, which she enjoyed doing for many years.

Even though Jane was limited by her physical handicaps she always maintained a positive attitude. With her Mom and Dad as close and constant companions and her faith to "hold her up", she lived a very rich life.

Survivors include her brother, Allen (Mary Jo) Hageness of New Franken; two sisters, Mary (Robert) McMahon of La Crosse, and Sharon (Jerry) Sather of Charles Town, W.V; her aunt, Mildred (Harvey) Krueger of Englewood, Fla.; ten nieces and nephews; 17 great-nieces and nephews; her many cousins; special friends, Kathy and Jeff White and Joanne and Roger Flaten of Eau Claire; and her many other friends including those at PALS.
