A mother holds her child’s hand for a little while and their hearts forever…..Our hearts were saddened on Wednesday, January 31, 2018 with the sudden passing of our loving mother, nana, sister, aunt and friend Jane Wilmot Upham, 78, of LeRaysville, Pa. Jane was born on April 14, 1939 in Towanda, Pa a daughter of the late Newell B. “N.B.” and Ethel (Wilbur) Wilmot. She was a graduate of Northeast Bradford High School class of 1957. She received her BS in Health and Physical Education from East Stroudsburg University. On June 4, 1960, Jane married John Richard Upham and together they celebrated 51 years of marriage until his passing on July 28, 2011. Together Jane and John Richard owned and operated the family dairy farm in Neath. Jane took great satisfaction in tending to her beautiful flower and vegetable gardens, canning, and was a wonderful cook and baker. A loving and devoted mother and nana ~ she treasured the time spent with family and always looked forward to her grandchildren’s accomplishments. Jane was a member of the Neath Welsh Congregational Church where she assisted the Neath Ladies Aid and Vacation Bible School. A strong believer in education, Jane served for over forty years on Northeast Bradford Student Loan Board. As Jane’s health declined, she was assisted at home by her dear friends Arlyn and Arlene Wilbur and later moved to Brookdale Vestal West. There she made friends with the staff and residents. We would like to thank Arlyn and Arlene and the caregivers at Brookdale for the love and care they gave to our mom.
