Mary Jane Hull (nee Johnston)

Jane was born on August 11, 1927 in Seattle, Washington. At the age of 10 she moved to Chewelah, Washington where she lived with her aunt. In March of 1947 she married Thomas Hull. They had eight children.

The family moved to Canada in July 1965. In May of 1966 they bought a small farm in Palling, B.C. Jane stayed in the Burns Lake area until her passing on August 29, 2014. Jane was always known for having an open door, especially when it came to meal time. She still has lots of extended family and friends that call her Grandma Jane and treasure her many handicrafts. Her sewing, knitting, crocheting, and other crafts won her many ribbons at the fall fair both in Burns Lake as well as Washington, many of which were donated to the Terry Fox Run.

She was predeceased by her sons John, Ronnie, husband Tom and brother Bruce. She is survived by her children Elsie (Jerry), Deloris (Ike), Rose Mary (Lawrence), Jerry, Roger (Shannon), Jamie, 25 grandchildren, 57 great grandchildren, one great great grandson and her sister Elizabeth.

No service at this time and a family/friends gathering will be planned at a later date.

Donations in Jane’s memory can be made at the Bulkley Valley Credit Union, payable to the Palling Recreation Commission (for the Palling Hall fund).
