Jane Elizabeth Ryan, loving mother, wife, daughter and sister, who brought light and laughter to all of those that she knew, passed away Sunday April 28th 2013. She was only 65 years young.

Jane’s love for her family, friends, and students is too hard to put into words. She was so proud of her daughters and her husband in all that they did. She dedicated her life to creating happiness in the world. Not a day passed that she didn’t tell her loved ones how much she cared for them. Jane was extremely kindhearted and lived a life full of laughter and compassion. She spent 15 years teaching her students at Our Lady of Fatima in Wilton, CT. She treasured her students dearly and cherished every moment that she shared with them. Jane was an avid reader and a passionate writer of poetry. A resident of Ridgefield for 40 years, she was in the process of moving into her dream home in Washington, CT.

Jane is survived by her loving husband, Kevin Ryan and four daughters; Kelly Ryan, Shannon Ryan, Pamela Evans, and Mary Ryan. Jane also leaves behind her mother, Elizabeth Bloom, and her brother, Roy Bloom. Jane also leaves behind her first granddaughter, who is expected to arrive any day.

The family asks that they remember Jane as the witty, loving, and charming person that she was, and that they hold tight the memories that they have of her.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Monday, May 6, 2013 at 10 AM in Our Lady of Fatima Church, Wilton,

Interment will take place in St. Mary Cemetery, Ridgefield.

The family will receive friends in the Kane Funeral Home, 25 Catoonah St., Ridgefield on Saturday and Sunday from 4 PM to 7 PM.
