Jane Heaps

The Midnight Riders were grieved to learn that Jay Heaps’ mother, Jane, passed away on May 23 after a long, courageous battle with congenital lung disease and a double lung transplant. As a member of our extended Revolution family, we are deeply saddened by the loss and our condolences and thoughts are with Jay and the countless other family and friends likewise deprived of Jane’s devotion and friendship far too soon.

From her family:

Known for her contagious smile, her inner strength, quick wit, pink lipstick and grace, Jane graduated with a bachelor’s degree in education from Elms College.
Jane, selfless in every aspect of her life, was a loving, devoted, supportive wife, mother, daughter, grandmother, mother-in-law, sister, aunt and best friend to many. She has been a source of inspiration, strength and compassion for her family and friends.

Jane had an incredible gift of always being happy and bringing joy and strength to all who knew her. She thoroughly enjoyed being a parent and a grandparent; her greatest joys were her children and her grandchildren and their love brightened her world.

Jane’s mission in life involved fostering an atmosphere filled with love, gentleness, laughter, support and respect.

The Midnight Riders are coordinating with the Heaps family to make a charitable donation to the Luke W. Mulderig Memorial Fund in honor of Jane’s bright life. If you wish to participate with us, please feel free to send donations through the Midnight Riders here. 100% of all donations submitted through the Midnight Riders will be donated to the fund.
