I know you have been looking, trying to confirm the loss of our friend. We finally had to wait for it to hit the paper.
Donna and I really appreciate your efforts.
For those of you still trying to track down the story, here's what we have.

LOGANTON - Jane A. Holman, 68, of 581 Wagmyr Lane, formerly of 734 N. Fourth St., Sunbury, died Thursday, Feb. 24, 2005, in Quebec, Canada, as a result of a snowmobile-tractor-trailer accident.

She was born Aug. 19, 1936, in Galveston, Texas, a daughter of the late Dwight and Madeline (Kaylor) Dougherty. She and James D. Holman were married Jan. 30, 1958.

She attended DePauw University in Illinois, graduated from Lycoming College, Williamsport, and performed post-graduate work at Shippensburg University.

Mrs. Holman was a former teacher of Spanish, English and social studies in the Loyalsock School District and later an elementary teacher in the Harrisburg School District.

She was a member of Independent Bible Church, Northumberland.

Mrs. Holman was a member of the Pennsylvania State Snowmobilers Association and the Gun Owners of America.

She and her husband logged thousands of miles snowmobiling each year, especially in Canada.

She also enjoyed backpacking, canoeing and camping.

Surviving, in addition to her husband of 47 years, are two daughters and sons-in-law, Joan A. and Warren Stearns of East Syracuse, N.Y., and Judy A. and Steve Heimbach of Mifflinburg; one grandson, Jonathan Krisher of New Port Richey, Fla.; one brother, Robert A. Dougherty of Knoxville; and one sister, Sue Dougherty of Ralston, Mass.

Visitors may call from 10 to 11 a.m. Friday at the Jerre Wirt Blank Funeral Home, 395 State St., Sunbury, where the funeral will be conducted at 11 by the Rev. Kenneth Geise.

Burial will be in Lost Creek Mennonite Cemetery, RR2 McAlisterville.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Independent Bible Church, RR2, Box 320, Northumberland, PA 17857.

Our sincerest condolences to the entire family. My wife Merrilie (then Merrilie Goodison) was a childhood friend of Joannie and would like to follow up with her. Their number in East Syracuse is apparently unlisted. Is it possible to get in touch with her?

Ron and Donna; I'm very sorry to learn about your loss. It is always traumatic when you loose someone close to you. May God be with Jane and with you in these trying times.
