September 17, 1927 — June 22, 2020

Mary Jane Uhre (Hedberg) of Weston, Florida passed away peacefully on Monday, June 22, 2020 at 92 years of age. Jane was born on September 17, 1927 in Brooklyn, NY to Mary and Joseph Hedberg. Jane married Harry A. Uhre (deceased) of Brooklyn, NY on June 12, 1948 and had a successful career as a legal secretary. Jane, Harry and their five children resided in Pompton Plains, NJ, where she was an active member of Holy Spirit Parish and DePaul High School. Jane worked for the Rouse Company, Columbia, Maryland as an Events Coordinator at Willowbrook Mall. Jane was also an Events Specialist with The Rouse Company’s Corporate Marketing team that opened South Street Seaport, Bayside in Miami, Harbor Place, Owings Mills and The Shops at National Place. Jane was an artist who loved fashion, design, architecture and creating. Jane’s passion for pottery filled her soul and she loved nothing more than having her hands working a good slab of clay and creating unique pieces for her family and friends. Jane was devoted to her family, friends and her faith. She enjoyed over 58 summers vacationing at Lake Winnipesaukee, NH and as recently as August 2019 with her entire family. Jane loved volunteering at her church, Saint Bonaventure in Davie, FL, taking long drives along the ocean, 2 scoop ice cream sundaes, a good Italian meatball and a sweet Bailey’s Irish Cream. Jane was the oldest of three children and is survived by her sister, Joanne Marvin of Clifton, NJ and her brother, Joseph Hedberg and his wife, Phyllis, of Bogota, NJ. Jane is survived by her loving children: Lynn O’Grady of Alexandria, VA, Christine Daiber of Weston, FL, Michael Uhre of Davie, FL, Pamela Farrell and her husband Bart of Alexandria, VA, and Kim Gordon of Morristown, NJ, her grandchildren: Marisa O’Grady Rihner and her husband Adam, Matthew O’Grady, Alex Uhre and Olivia Gordon. Jane was predeceased by her beautiful grandson, Ryan Uhre, whom she saw in every cloud and rainbow in the sky. She is also survived by her two great grandchildren (her cherubs as she called them) Alton Jakob and Ilona Jane. She never tired of watching videos of them. Jane is also survived by many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Jane will be dearly missed by all. At her request, Jane’s final resting place will be at Lake Winnipesaukee, N.H., which she referred to as “God’s Country”. In lieu of flowers, donations will be graciously accepted by: The Lake Winnipesaukee Association - Keep Winni Blue, a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting the water quality and natural resources of Lake Winnipesaukee, a glacier formed lake in New Hampshire, and its watershed. www.winnipesaukee.org Please note in the comment section In Memory of Jane Uhre.
