Fitchburg – Jane E. Ide, 71, passed away peacefully on February 12, 2020.

I was born May 26, 1948 and graduated from Fitchburg High School in 1966, celebrating the 100th anniversary. I went on to graduate from Burbank Hospital School of Nursing in 1968. When I moved to Townsend, I joined the volunteer fire department and gave many years of loyal service there. I worked at Burbank for 29 years, and retired in 1997. During my life I traveled extensively to Hawaii, Jamaica and the Caribbean, as well as St. Petersburg, Florida. In later years, after I retired, my sister Gail and I traveled to Virginia Beach, Atlantic City, and Ocean-Front Beach in Wells, Maine.  My love of the ocean breezes, sunrise/sunsets was huge and life-giving.

My life as a nurse was the most gratifying thing I could have done. I was also a cat lover and had them all my life. Many of them were rescue cats or from shelters, all with unique names.

I am survived by my brother Bernard Francis Ide, Jr. “Skip”; my sister Gail Frances Ide, my best friend Michele Lyman Robbins, who was like an adopted daughter to me. I was predeceased by my parents Edna Frances Baker Ide who died in 2000 and Bernard Francis Ide, Sr. who died in 2003.
