She was 88. Jane was born on August 15, 1935, in Camden, NJ. She was a beloved wife, cherished mother of four, adored grandmother of four, and great-grandmother of one. Jane’s warmth, kindness, and vibrant spirit touched the lives of all who knew her.

     Jane was the heart and soul of the Hoger family. She married her sweetheart, Donald Hoger, in 1955 and together they built a life filled with love, laughter, and countless cherished memories. Jane’s passion for life was evident in her dedication to her husband, children, and grandchildren.
