She was a 1948 graduate of Pitman High School and attended East Stroudsburg University for her undergraduate degree in Health and Physical Ed.

Prior to her retirement in 1994, she spent 42 years as an educator, 23 of which she was Principal of Saddle Brook High School from 1971-1994.

Jane was a member of the Kalamazoo Lassies, one of the original teams of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, which was depicted in the 1992 movie, "A League Of Their Own." She is a member of the International Women's Baseball Center in Rockford, Illinois across from Beyer Stadium home of Rockford Peaches. Jane played on two Midwest Teams from 1949-52. Jane's athletic prowess was surpassed by her career in Education teaching in Edison and South Plainfield school.

In 1988, Jane was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY and the East Stroudsburg, Hall of Fame in 1990.

She continued to be active in her local community by serving on the board of directors at Cape May Legacy for many years. She also served on the Board of the AAGPBL for many years. She believed in empowerment through education which inspired her passion for the vision committee of the AAGPBL. She was instrumental in the creation of the "Woman at Bat" statue which stands in the Garden of Legends at Cooperstown's Baseball Hall of Fame. A pioneer, a visionary and an educator, she ran the bases with determination and commitment and hit the grand slam home run in life.
