Our beloved Jane Elizabeth Roach, born July 19th, 1917 in Toledo, Ohio, stepped into the great beyond on Tuesday, April 13th, 2010 in Seminole, Florida, at the age of 92. She was predeceased by her husband, Lee Roach in May of 1977 and her daughter, Nancy Jo Ballard of South Pittsburgh, Tennessee in May of 2002. Jane is survived by her siblings, Doris C. Moorehead of Seminole, Florida and Larry Moorehead of Maymee, Ohio. She is also survived by her daughter, Diana Lee Bowhall of Clearwater, Florida; son, Randy Roach, Sr., of St. Petersburg, Florida; grandchildren, Randy Roach, Jr. and Bryan Bowhall of St. Petersburg, Florida; Julie Wehunt and Amy Fuqua of South Pittsburgh, Tennessee; great grandchildren, Garrett and Dylan Roach of St. Petersburg, Florida; Courtney Rollins, Mason Fuqua and Mckenna Fuqua of South Pittsburgh, Tennessee.
Jane was a US Naval veteran of WW II and held her country very close to her heart. After moving to Florida from Ohio, she was employed in retail sales at Maas Brothers where she retired after 13 years. In retirement, Jane was fond of many things. She thoroughly enjoyed Bingo with her sister, playing card games with her family and friends, watching college football and golf on TV, the mysterious beauty of the owl, discussing current events, fine dining, Coors Light, sausage pizza, and peanut butter. Chunky Peter Pan was her condiment of choice.
Jane was outspoken by few but loved by many. She could rarely speak to anyone without creating a lasting impression. As the head, and the rock of her very diverse family, she will be forever loved and missed.
A Memorial Service will be held at Bay Pines National Cemetery on May 4th, 2010 at 2:15pm. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you send a donation to the Suncoast Hospice.
