Mary Jane Springer

Mary Jane Springer, 92, of Ocala, FL passed away peacefully at home on Monday, January 2, 2023.

Born in Craig, CO, then later moving to Arvada, she worked many years in the hospital field and for the phone company, retiring in Special Services at AT&T. She moved with her husband to Ocala in 1987. At age 15 she was a pilot in the Civil Air Patrol. As an Overseas Operator she became fluent in 9 languages. Add to that Den Mother, PTA President and Union Rep. But most importantly to her, she was a wife and mother of 3 loving children who miss her dearly.

She enjoyed bowling, golfing, fishing, gardening, walking, traveling and meeting new people. She embraced the joys of life and triumphed over its many obstacles. She was a sweet and humble soul, always putting others before herself. Resilient to the very end, she never lost her sense of humor or that beautiful smile. Truly an inspiration.

She is predeceased by her husband Aubrey, survived by sister Nancy May, SC, daughter Cheri Springer, Ocala, sons Bob Springer (Joan), Colorado Springs, CO and Bill Springer (Denise), Grand Junction, CO, and multiple grand and great grandchildren.
