Her life was one of service to her family, to her community, and to her church.

She tirelessly shared her talents at Faison Presbyterian Church in a variety of capacities including as an Elder of the Session.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by the love of her life, Gary William Hollingsworth. Jane is survived by her daughter, Robin Hollingsworth Williford and husband Joey Wood Williford, her beloved grandchildren, Charles William and Jane Suzanne Williford, sister Linda Precythe Williamson, nieces Virginia Williamson Hillhouse and Elizabeth Leigh Williamson, and sister-in-laws Joanne Hollingsworth Peterson and Sharon Hollingsworth Pearsall.
