February 21, 1929 - December 8, 2015
Ms. Jane Sampson of High River, Alberta passed away at the Foothills Hospital in Calgary on December 8th, 2015 at the age of 86 years. On December 1st Jane suffered a heart attack while doing something she loved to do dearly and that was swimming lengths in the pool. Throughout her time in High River she had completed almost 1500 lengths. Jane is survived by her second cousins Eldred Milne and Alberta MacKinnon both of Ontario as well as her many special friends. Jane will be remembered for her friendly, jovial demeanor and her genuine joy in chatting with people. Although she did not have family of her own, she took great interest in hearing about her friends’ children. A daily ritual for Jane was to visit the High River Library to complete the Calgary Herald crossword. She had a remarkable aptitude in solving quite difficult puzzles. Her fascination with vocabulary led her to be seen playing a weekly scrabble game at McDonald’s restaurant. She nourished her mind with good literature and noteworthy authors. She especially loved going to see plays written by Shakespeare. Jane also thrived on debates about politics. She described herself as a political junkie and was pleased when the NDP came to power in Alberta. Having worked as a makeup specialist for Max Factor, Jane always took great pride in her appearance. She paid great attention to her hair and makeup and almost always wore earrings that sparkled. Jane’s kind and thoughtful nature was seen when she surprised her friends with little gifts and treated them to lunch to celebrate a birthday. A Celebration of Jane’s Life was held on Friday, December 18th where we welcomed friends to attend a come-and-go tea being hosted at the High River Library . Please join us in remembering and sharing fond memories of our dear friend. If desired memorial donations may be made to the High River Library.
