Jane Lodico of Clearfield, PA passed away on Friday, March 29, 2019 at the age of 92.
Born in Clearfield, Jane was the daughter of the late James and Carmela (Fama) Maiorana.
Jane was the consummate role model, confidante and cheerleader. Her arms were always wide open to welcome family and friends into her home and into her life. She was artistic and had a love of beauty. One of her many gifts was transforming the ordinary into something special, whether it be a room, an object or a meal. In her youth she wrote poetry and sang in the choir. She could tell the funniest stories with a flare that would flatten the room with laughter. She devoted every ounce of her energy into her commitment to her children and her grandchildren. Deeply rooted in her faith, she guided the family quietly but with a will of iron on a path of love, patience and tenderness. Her decisions were always based on what was right for all. Her legacy will be her capacity to love, give and transform.
Jane spent her earlier years in Clearfield and later created a new life in Washington, DC where she worked for the international law firm of Fulbright and Jaworski LLP as Head Receptionist. Upon retiring, she was honored as their official ‘Ambassador to the World.’
Jane was preceded in death by her daughter, Connie Boyce; five sisters, Rose Maiorana, Carrie Graves, Theresa Amon, Mary Waterworth-Whiting, and Kathryn Maiorana; and three brothers, John, Anthony ‘Nin’, and Joseph Maiorana. She is survived by two daughters, Terri Davis of Clearfield, PA and Bethany Jones of Fairfax, VA; four granddaughters, Melanie Boyce, Heather Nearhoof and husband Matthew, Natalie Jones, and Amanda Jones; three great grandchildren, Riley Paul-Cook, Maxwell Paul-Cook, and Piper Jane Nearhoof; and numerous nieces and nephews.
