Jane Bridget Blake of Callicoon, NY, passed away on December 13, 2019 at Catskill Regional Medical Center, Harris, NY. She was 82, born on February 16, 1937 in Norfolk, England. She is survived by her son Paul, daughter-in-law Erica and four grandsons.
Despite declining health, Jane maintained her independence until the last few days of her life in her beloved country cottage and studio surrounded by her beautiful gardens in the Beechwoods. Jane will be greatly missed by her friends and clients in and around Sullivan County and New York City who knew her as an artist, bookkeeper and gardener.
She will also be remembered as a well-traveled, well-informed woman of many talents and accomplishments, despite her reluctance to tout them herself. Jane was a valued member of the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance, Narrowsburg, NY and The Artery, Milford, PA. She was laid to rest on December 19 at the Ghent Union Cemetery in Ghent, NY.
