Jane Allyn Miller, beloved sister of Alice (Stanley) Dub and Susan (Bob) Schwarz. Devoted aunt of Daniel (Anne) Barach, David Barach, Dr. Rachel (Alex) Friedman, Brian (Rivka) Dub, Sam Schwarz and Lily Schwarz. Great-aunt of Isaac, Benji, Ethan, Gabriel, Avrahom Tzvi, Chaya and Chava Malka. Loving niece of Sally Good and Jane Good. Adored daughter of the late Ruth and Allen Miller. Cherished companion of Andrew Culliton and his children, Kaylyn and Andrew.
Janie addressed her illness with characteristic determination and grit. She was so brave in the way that she handled her very considerable pain and she never lost the hope that “I’ll get through this.” She had a marvelous and irreverent sense of humor, that was only exceeded by her singular devotion to those she loved. She was incredibly thoughtful, tender and funny with her parents as she navigated with them through their final illnesses.
Janie maintained very meaningful relationships with her siblings, her niece and nephews, her cousins, her aunts and her dear friends. Her companion, Andrew, along with his children, became cherished family to her as well. Janie possessed the gift of forming close relationships wherever she was, whether that was work or in her neighborhood or in a more social context. Her sense of joy and of fun was contagious.
Private family graveside services were held Sept. 26 at Lake View Cemetery. Family and friends who were unable to attend may view the service on YouTube by searching “Jane Allyn Miller Funeral Service.”
