Jane L. (Alexander) Yoder
Jane L. (Alexander) Yoder, 85, passed away on Friday, May 17, 2019, at Broad Acres Nursing Home in Wellsboro, after a long battle with Parkinson’s disease. She was born on Nov. 8, 1933, in Roaring Branch, a daughter of Kenneth and Esther (Frey) Alexander.
Jane was a graduate of Liberty High School. She spent many years working beside her husband and their sons at Yoder’s Market in Roseville. After a few years as receptionist for Drs. Coole and Evans, DDS, in Mansfield, it was time to move to a warmer climate in Florida in 1979. During those years, she worked at Hales Grove Stores and Fairwinds Golf Course. There she was able to pursue her passion for golf, winning nine club championships at Indian Pines Golf Course, and achieving three holes-in-one. A move back to Pennsylvania in 2013 brought her closer to her family and friends again.
Jane is survived by her husband of 68 years, Arnold L. Yoder, four sons, Terry R. (Beverly) Yoder, A. Michael (Mindy) Yoder, William F. (Kathy) Yoder, and Gregory K. (Julie) Yoder; a sister, Dorothy Kreger, a brother, John “Jack” (Rose) Alexander; a sister-in-law, Sandra Alexander, six grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her brother, Robert Alexander and granddaughter, Teri Ann Yoder.
