Virginia “Jane” Carrier passed away on July 9th, 2016.
Jane was born on Feb. 2nd, 1933 in Wilkes-Barre, PA to William and Adele Adams. She graduated from University of Miami.
Shortly after marrying her husband Ed Carrier the two took off towards the west coast on a whim with very little to their name. They ended up settling in San Francisco. She got her first teaching job in San Juan Batista where most of her students spoke Spanish which she knew none at the time.
Ed and Jane spent many years in Sierra County with a home in Downieville and a Real Estate office in Sierra City where they enjoyed working, volunteering and living with many friends.
After they started a family she dedicated her time to the care of her children and the home. Later on she decided to go back to school and finish getting her masters at Cal State Harvard.
After retirement Jane and Ed spent a lot of time traveling and enjoying the world. They could be found in France and Hawaii for months on end.
She is survived by her children Nicole and Andre and her grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her husband Ed Carrier.
In lieu of flowers memorial contributions can be made to the Nevada County Hospice of the Foothill.
