Jane Hatt (Toft) VIEW PROFILE


SIOUX CITY -- Jane Laurie Toft, 49, of Salix Iowa, formerly of Sioux City, died and was found near Sloan, Iowa, on January 5, 2010, having lost a battle with extreme winter conditions.

Private graveside services will be held Friday in Graceland Park Cemetery in Sioux City. A celebration of life will be 3 to 7 p.m. Friday at the Crosstown Cafe, 714 South Lewis Blvd. Arrangements are under the direction of Waterbury Funeral Service in Sergeant Bluff.

Lovingly raised by Don and Arla Hatt, Jane graduated with the North High School class of 1979, before making her way to California. There, Jane married and gave birth to her only child, Christina Mae Henderson. A master of many trades, her resume included such professions as tending bar, marketing, construction and driving truck, just to name a few. In March 2006, her father fell ill, so she packed up and moved back to Iowa. Sadly after three months, her father passed, but she remained and rediscovered her Iowa roots.

Jane is survived by her daughter, Christina who resides in Alameda, Calif.; her brother, Jon Hatt; her nephews, Daniel Hatt and his wife, Kayla of Columbus, Ohio, and Gregory Hatt of Evanston, Ill. She is also survived by her birth mother, Jackie Bazor of Beaver Dam, Ariz., with whom she had recently happily reunited; and her loving pets, Gato, Scooter, DC and Samson.

Flowers or memorial contributions to the Siouxland Humane Society may be sent to the Waterbury Funeral Service in Sergeant Bluff.

I just remember all the trouble you and I got into in junior high and how much fun we had! Am so sorry I didn't make it to the reunion to see you. You will forever be in my thoughts!

You won the quiz and thus the 6-pack of Montana Brew. When I walked up to you at the reunion with it wrapped in a red bow I remember your eyes just lighting up. You gave me a hug and were so thankful. Later e-mailing me and telling me how much you enjoyed the different samples expressing your love for the Moose Drool, one of my favorites. It was an absolute pleasure getting to know you, rest in peace in GODS arms.

RIP Jane. Jane went to the reunion at my urging and was so very nervous. I went with her Friday night to reassure her that there was nothing to fear and that she would be warmly welcomed. Hate to say it but I was right :).. YOU ALL made her day/week/month/YEARS. She totally enjoyed that July weekend..I am guessing almost more than ANY of us. The silly hat song, the beer bet..all of it.
We were called by the sheriff and her brother. We were the last phone call out of her Home at noon on January 1st. She had been snowed in for "6 days" and was going out for a beverage. We declined as we have puppies at our house. She was in great spirits (as usual)..she made it home with her DD that night and then the rest (as I understand it) is somewhat of a guess. Anyway I just wanted to say as a class she was so fulfilled it seems of everyone's response. So again THANKS for all and again RIP Janie.
