Resting Peacefully
“To The Moon and Back and Then Some”


Our beautiful niece and cousin Jane passed away and left a big hole in our hearts and lives. We watched you grow from a cheeky carefree kid to a strong determined woman, wife and mother of 4 beautiful and talented kids. You never stopped caring for those you loved always challenging yourself and those around you to give it a go. You inspired so many with your endless energy. Now heaven has another one of our angels.

“Plain Jane you were not, the path to Heaven you shall make of glitter and the rainbows will be painted brighter.”

Jane you will be forever remembered and greatly missed. Now is your time to rest Jane and be with those who are waiting to welcome you.

Love Aunty Ann, Aunty Ina, Uncle Ed, Uncle Banger and families xxx


Jane I am going to miss talking to you when I go to Aunty Sandie’s. Love Stumpy xxxx


Much loved Goddaughter of Barbara, Irena and Tanja.

You have enriched our lives in so many ways and our hearts are hurting because you have been torn away so soon. We know we will meet again. Love Aunties Tanja and Irena and Stara Mama

  25. Jane was one of a kind! She could listen compassionately and was one of the smartest people I’ve known. She cherished her children and husband. I will never forget working with her. She could think her way around any problems and although she was colourful in her speaking, was impeccably polite professionally and prided herself on her use of good etiquette. Her work ethic left me in awe and doesn’t surprise me given her legacy of the Livingstone family. She changed people’s lives after Black Saturday. You could not help but learn from Jane and admire her drive for life and work. God bless to her mum and dad and sisters and much love sent to Colin and her children. Joedy Meers.
