My cousin Jane

My cousin Jane Lynn Veith died on Sunday night and I am still trying to adjust to that reality.

Jane grew up in Leonia, New Jersey and attended Leonia High School. She attended Trinity College in Connecticut and went on to do a PhD in psychology at Ohio State University. Before going into private practice, she was a tenure track professor at Washington State University. She was awarded a Watson Fellowship after college and was one of the smartest people I knew.

Jane was also very funny and had a wonderful sense of humor. She and I used to walk around Green Lake way back when and we never ran out of stuff to talk about. We both especially loved analyzing our family backgrounds and how our families shaped us. Jane also loved to cook and experiment with new recipes. She was a voracious reader.

We both independently moved to Seattle over 25 years ago and got to know each other as adults in the years after that. I will miss her greatly.

Jane was well loved by many and she leaves behind her husband and sister and her beloved animals, especially Ellijay and Edward the 4th.
