Jane M. Rupprecht, 98, passed away in her home on Tuesday, April 25, 2023 surrounded by her loving family.
She was born on March 5,1925 in St. Marys, PA, the daughter of the late George and Kathryn Grant Kronenwetter. On August 28, 1948, Jane married Jerome "Whitey" Rupprecht. Jerome's uncles, Fr. Jerome Rupprecht OSB, Fr. Norbert Rupprecht OSB, and Fr. Melvin Rupprecht OSB offered a concelebrated wedding mass at Sacred Heart Church where they remained lifetime members. Together they shared almost 75 years of love and happiness.
Jane was a lifelong resident of St. Marys and a 1943 graduate of St. Marys Area High School. In the early 1950's, Jane and Whitey built their home together where they raised their four children. They especially enjoyed spending time on their back porch visiting with family and friends.
Jane devoted her life to her husband and children. She loved being a homemaker and worked part-time at Sears, Roebuck and Company for over 20 years. Jane was a member of the St. Anne's Society where she served as president for over 25 years. She was also a member of the Alter Society, a cafeteria volunteer, and enjoyed working at the election polls. Jane was an avid shopper, enjoyed playing cards especially cinch and rabbit, and traveled to each of the 50 states as well as Mexico, Canada and Nova Scotia with her husband and friends. She looked forward to yearly camping trips and picnics at Twin Lakes with her grandchildren.
Jane was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She touched the lives of everyone she met. She always thought of little ways to show others that they were important. She followed her mother's tradition of sending cards to family and friends on special occasions and holidays. Many were touched by her kindness.
Jane is survived by her husband and their children; Susan Schenfield, Mary Kay (Jim) Vollmer, Paul (Rita) Rupprecht and Jill (Tim) Bernett. She was proud of her ten grandchildren; Michael (Kristin) Vollmer, Eric (Taryn) Schenfield, Kati (Andy) Weiland,

She is also survived by a sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Shirley and Jim Rupprecht, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and friends.
