For those of you who knew our fun, loving, positive, caring friend & classmate Jane she remained the same person thru the age of 38 years of age. Jane married Jim Davidson and left 3 wonderful, beautiful children, Lily (7), Juliana (5), and Noah (3). Jane battled breast cancer the last few years of her life and ultimately her life was taken when her liver failed the Thursday before Thanksgiving last year in 2008. I was given the second chance privilege of knowing Jane again in our adult years as she and Jim moved back from Houston and brought their kids to attend the private school where my children attend and I worked. While I still see Jim and the kids at school -- Jane is sorely missed. She remained positive till the end. I don't think she had a pessimistic bone in her body. I was lucky like many of you to spend our high school years together with Jane - sleepovers, driving to the McDonalds at O'Conner & Nacodogches to see who was there and get a late night snack, getting her brothers to go and get us those 80's "wine coolers". And those road trips to UT Austin. Jane's mother, whom I still see from time to time has many fond memories of so many of us with Jane too.
It was a lot of fun Jane! You will never be forgotten.
Rest in peace our fellow Maverick & dear friend---

Thanks Lynn for filling in the details. I did some research last night, and I believed I had found an obituary for Jane, but I wasn't sure. I wanted to do more research before I posted anything.
The article I did find had a picture that looked a bit like Jane (20 years after I last saw her, of course), only with short hair. I assumed that the short hair was due to cancer treatments; sometimes it's very unfortunate to be right.
I didn't know Jane well at all, I only recognized her from her picture. But I enjoyed your description of her, and how cheerful she was. It's so sad that she leaves so many behind. The world could use more optimistic people. It's very sad that she left us before July 2009. From the way you describe her, I'm sure that her many friends from Madison would have enjoyed reconnecting with her.

UPDATE: Here is a link to Jane's obituary:
