Condolence: I was so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. I have many wonderful memories of your mom and dad. Your mother's sweet smile and cheerful, generous spirit were always such fun to be around. I am sorry that I wasn't able to come to the service last week. My dad shared such wonderful stories of speaking with all of you and sharing memories of our times with your family! You have been so blessed by your exceptional mom and dad. I pray that you'll be comforted by the love that you share as a family and the sweet memories of your wonderful mom. Feel free to reach out to me anytime. I would welcome the chance to catch up with all of you.

Condolence: Jane was a beautiful woman inside and out. Her warm smile and joyful spirit blessed all she met. Her generosity was large but done quietly and humbly and without fanfare. She was a pillar of strength to her husband, Bert, her children, her grandchildren and her many friends. We will miss her presence and her love and cherish our fond memories always. Our love is sent to the family and friends.

Condolence: I will miss my good friend but am thankful that she has been part of my life since 1946. We met at Otterbein and I was her maid of honor when she and Bert married. Even though, I always lived in Virgina and she was in Ohio, we stayed in touch. After we both became widows, we enjoyed traveling together in Europe and USA. She was kind and generous and a true friend. To know her was to love her.

Condolence: To Jane’s Family:
Jane was most indeed a great lady. She was a joy to be around as her zest and enthusiasm for life was contagious. Mary and I first met Jane a few years ago at Siesta Dunes on Siesta Key where we both spent much of our winter. We had many great dinners and conversations during our times in Florida with Jane. Jane was always very special to our daughter Katie and was a guest a number of times to enjoy Katie’s culinary talents and conversation. We often enjoyed our conversations at the beautiful sunsets at the Dunes. We will miss Jane and the Florida sunsets will not be quite as beautiful without her presence.

Condolence: Jane and her late husband, Bert, warmly welcomed me to Otterbein and West Street in 1956. I walked past their home daily for three years. They made me really feel at home. Like Bert, she was so gracious and friendly to me. I saw her at Homecoming nearly every year since my graduating in 1960. She
always had a great smile and showed her graciousness through the years. it was a joy to know her. I offer my deep sympathy to her family.
I know she fit well into the Horn family well.
Bert’s parents were on my newspaper route in Miamisburg during the 1950’s. She well represented the Horn family as well as Otterbein and the Westerville community.

Condolence: I know Jane through our book club. I admired and respected her very much. I remember her speaking to us a few years ago about a philosophy class that she was taking, probably from Otterbein. The professor had asked all the members of the class to bring to the next class a statement reflecting the true meaning of life. Jane said the assignment was easy; one must remember that life is not all about you. The truth of her statement really struck me, and I thought, Jane lives that statement. She was a compassionate and generous person and a wonderful example to all of how to live wisely and well.

Condolence: We were so sorry to hear about Mrs. Horn's passing. She was a good friend of my Mom and Dad, Carl and Millie Schafer. She was our friend too. She was always cheery and welcoming to Ben and Emily when we stopped to see her and Mr. Horn after school. We will always remember her wonderful smile, her kindness, her love of life and her beautiful style. May your memories and love keep you in God's warm and comforting embrace.

Condolence: Our family sends condolences to the entire Horn family. Jane was a beautiful lady and was always a pleasure to speak with when seeing her about town.
Condolence From: Mary Jane and Denver Santee, Westerville, OH
Condolence: Jane and I became better acquainted through our Book Club, but I met her first at a parent/teacher conference for she was our daughter's second grade teacher. She had an ability, when teaching, to see the potential in her students and encouraged their creative possibilities for which we were most grateful. Our Book Club will not be the same without Jane. She added warmth and depth to our discussions, often pointing out concepts and ideas that some of the rest of us missed seeing. She was friendly, kind and fun. She will be greatly missed.
Condolence From: Dave & Katie Schafer, Cincinnati, Ohio
Condolence: A wonderful women and special friend to our parents, Carl and Millie Schafer. Another special Otterbein couple that always had a pleasant smile and welcoming personality. Made everyone better, by being in their lives.
