Embed code for: Jane's Eulogy
Select a size
Jane was born in Savannah on April 28, 1929, just six months before the infamous Wall Street crash that ushered in the Great Depression. Her parents, Bill and Earline Rogers struggled to provide Jane and later her sister Helen with basic food, shelter and clothing. Bill, who lacked education and had limited job skills, settled for menial jobs such as taxi driver and hotel doorman. Luckily, Earline was a member of the Mormon church and had her daughters baptized into the LDS as well. The good people of the church came to the aid of the Rogers family on many occasions.
Jane graduated from Commercial High School in 1947 and married Cecil Beasley a year later. She had two sons by Cecil, Bobby in 1949 and Wayne in ’51. Cecil was an abject failure as a husband, a provider and a father. Jane finally had enough of Cecil’s routine Friday night drunkenness and his beatings in 1957 when she divorced him and moved on.
Jane remained a single, working mother until she raised her boys to manhood, providing however she could manage through working at low paying jobs, help from the boys’ grandparents and, of course, the church. We lost Bobby in 1974 to a house fire, a devastating event that changed Jane’s life forever. She was only fortunate to have the strength of her Mormon faith to help support her emotionally and spiritually.
God brought Denny O’Connell into her life in the 1970’s, they were married and lived very happy lives together until Denny’s passing in 1995. After Denny moved on, Jane joined her son Wayne and stayed with him and his wife, Teresa until Jane passed away on October 14th, 2016.
