Wigle, Beulah “Jane” (Fox)
85 years, passed away peacefully on Saturday, March 24, 2012 at Leamington District Memorial Hospital with her family by her side after a hard fought battle with heart disease. She was born to Cliff and Ruth Fox, March 28, 1926, the third of eight children. Jane grew up in the Leamington area and on September 30, 1946 married her husband of 52 years “Al”, the late William Alton Wigle (1998), after he returned from his service in the war. Surviving are their children Sandra, Michael, and Denise Bishop (Bill). Grandchildren Sherri (Charlie), Shawn and Jamie and great grandchildren Mikala and Spencer. Dear sister of Fern Coulter (late Jim), Jean Damphouse, Lois Wojick (late Stan), Larry Fox (Lorraine), and brother-in-law Tony Baysarowich. Jane was predeceased by her siblings Robert Fox (Verna), Don Fox (Margaret), Evelyn Baysarowich. She was a special aunt to several nieces and nephews. Jane had retired from the A&P in March of 1991 after 45 years of dedicated service. She jokingly referred to the store as “the old ache and pain” but loved her work there immensely as she explained in an interview, “I just enjoy people.” She always had a kind word and a smile for everyone. Over the years she was so associated with the store that she was known by many as “Jane Parker.” She enjoyed bowling in as many as 3 leagues in her best years and continued to bowl with the girls until she was 84. She loved to go to concerts in Windsor with her friend, Bernice, and proudly kept her stack of ticket stubs for all to see. In retirement she volunteered at her church, for the Heart & Stroke Foundation as well as the Cancer Society. Jane’s family would like to express their heartfelt thank you to the doctors, nurses and all the staff of the second floor at Leamington Hospital, the staff of Erie Glen Manor, CCAC and St. Elizabeth’s for their dedicated care and thoughtfulness during this difficult time.

Whose smiles, kind words and love,
Are missed, but forever remembered.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you did not go alone,
For part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.
