She will always be remem bered for her love of life, generosity of spirit, and kindness. Jane was born in Fargo, North Dako ta in 1923 and grew up there. She worked as an Activities Director for the United Service Organizations (USO) in Seattle. Then she worked as an Activities Director for the Army Special Services, which took her to Germany, Alaska and finally Colora do where she met her future husband, William (Bill) Brennan, DVM. After marrying, Jane and Bill moved to Seattle (Ballard) where they built and worked together at The Ballard Animal Hospital and raised their six children. Jane was active as a volun teer for the Children's Home Society and St. Alphonsus Parish. Jane's adventurous spirit and love of travel took her to many parts of the world. A classical pianist, she shared her love of music with many people over the years and was the proud winner of the North Dakota State Piano Championship at the young age of 14. But nothing gave her more joy than to be with her family, and her family could not have had a more extraordinary mother.

She is survived by her six children: Mary Brennan Quade (Rolland), Stephen Brennan, James Brennan (Mary Anchondo), Julia Brennan Conquest (Bill), Anne McLaren Brennan, and Susan Brennan (Robert Sanders); five grandchildren, Jessica Conquest, Rachel Brennan, Joseph Conquest, Grace McLaren Brennan, and Molly Quade.
