Obituary of Jane Small

Jane Small, born in 1924 in Utica, New York, died at age 93 on April 19, 2018 in Northglenn, Colorado. After raising her five children, Jane returned to college as a nontraditional student, first attending OCC, and then graduating from Syracuse University Law School at a time when few women entered that profession. She was a professor for SUNY Empire State College and Lemoyne College for many years.  Jane was preceded in death by her daughters, Gretchen, Tracie, and Darcie. She is survived by her son, Erich; daughter, Lindsay; and grandchildren, Jarrod, Shea, Dylan, Cole, Julia, Lauren, Cristian, and Erich, Jr. Jane had a passion for reading, good music, good food, and a lifelong curiosity about life and its mysteries. Those who wish may donate in Jane's name to Temple Society of Concord 910 Madison Street Syracuse, New York 13210. She was smart, strong, and vital, never afraid to take risks. Sui Generis, Jane. Thank you to her good friend, R. Gotti. There will be no services. Burial will be at White Chapel Memory Gardens DeWitt. Arrangements are being handled by the Fairchild & Meech DeWitt Chapel.
