Jane Metcalf went to be with the Lord on March 2, 2018 surrounded by her loving family. A beautiful Christian woman, Jane Metcalf raised a family of five childen: one boy and four girls. She worked to support the family and did her best to give them the lesson of being in church services come Sunday morning. Jane didn’t often have a lot of help and remained strong overcoming many obstacles in her life. In her hometown, Jane was famous for the delicious pies that she baked at Clem’s Café for many years. Jane also had been a familiar face volunteering at the Kearney Senior Center. Her children recently honored her with a 90th birthday open house.
Jane was born November 26, 1927 to Clifford and Lena May Gray.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Clifford and Lena May Gray; brother, Joe Gray; infant son, Terry Metcalf; and grandson and granddaughter-in-law, Paul and Sariah Lindstrom.
Surviving her are her children, Paul and Peggy Metcalf, Patsy and Tom Lindstrom, Pam and Robert House, Jo Ann McMenomy, Jerry and Brad Link; as well as numerous beloved grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Her legacy of hard work, Christian faith, and community spirit should remain an example and encouragement to all. Jane will be missed by many.

Our Sincere Condolences
So sorry for the loss of your mom and grandmother. I always enjoyed visiting with her. She is having such a great time visiting with all who went before her. May God wrap his arms around you all and give you strength.
Jane was a member of the same congregation as I was for roughly 15 years. Always made the best pies for our church dinners and you had to be fast in order to get a piece of pie. If I didn’t get any or not enough pie, then to Clem’s Cafe I would go. Jane’s presence and positive attitude were always a blessing to the congregation.

I so enjoyed Jane and am so sorry for your loss.
She was a very special lady who I will forever remember.
I cannot make the service but my thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
