May 30, 1947 – January 12, 2013
Jane left us suddenly while on vacation in Blythe California at the very young age of 65.
Jane was born and raised in the beautiful Comox Valley, daughter of Bob and Morag Bowie and the great granddaughter of Reginald T. Carwithen, one of the original settlers of the Comox Valley.
Jane is survived by husband Paul Keoughan and siblings, Ian Bowie (Sue), Betty Lund (Bill) and Doug Bowie (Gayle), daughter Jennifer Fitzgerald (Wayne), step children Clancy Keoughan (Dianne) and Curry Keoughan (Jennifer) and her precious grandchildren, Jessica, Rachel and Tyler Fitzgerald, Torin and Shannon Keoughan, Maeve, Ruby, Stella and Stanley Keoughan.
A few of her many interests included oil painting and recently enjoyed sharing her artistic talents with her granddaughter Rachel. Jane played softball and many years of golf. Last season she was the Captain of the Sunnydale Ladies Golf Club.
Jane and Paul loved to travel. Their trip to Africa and traveling across Canada with their trailer visiting friends and family was a definite highlight in Jane’s life. Jane and Paul in the last few years had become Snowbirds and started spending winters in California enjoying warm sunny days and the welcome comradery of their new friends.
Her early working career included many years at Searle’s Shoes and most recently 33 Years in the office at Central Builders.
Jane had many relatives and friends who will all miss her outgoing personality and mischievous sense of humour.
A celebration of Jane’s life will be held in the Upper Native Sons Hall, 1-4pm, Feb 3 2013. Please come and share your stories of Jane, we know there are some memorable ones out there!
In lieu of flowers donations can be made to a local charity of your choice.
