Jane Ellen (Strommen) Busch

On Sunday, October 25, 2020, Jane went home to be with her husband, Merlin, to whom she has greatly missed since 2006. Along with Merlin, Jane was greeted by her numerous pets over the years.  Jane loved animals. Whenever, Merlin would ship livestock, Jane would go in the house and cry because they were her pets. One heifer, Baby, she bottle fed until it was full grown.

Jane will be most remembered for having a loving and kind heart, always going out of her way to help anyone in need.
