Jane Oler

Jane Oler January 28, 1950 – October 17, 2020 In the early morning of Saturday, October 17, 2020, our beautiful sister, amazing aunt, and wonderful friend passed away at the age of 70 following a courageous battle with Alzheimer’s. Jane was born in Idaho Falls, Idaho to Maurice and Isobel Erikson Oler on January 28, 1950. In I972, Jane graduated from BYU with a teaching degree in Health Science and a minor in Business. She later received a master’s degree in Advanced Education Administration. In November of 1972, she left on a mission serving in the Indiana – Michigan Mission. This was a wonderful time in Jane’s life. Jane devoted herself to church, family, and her career as a teacher and an administrator in the Clark County School District in Las Vegas, Nevada. She retired on January 27, 2006 Jane followed the Lord’s commandment to love one another. Her love was unconditional, and she offered it without price or condition. She quietly supported her siblings, nieces, nephews and many friends as they encountered many of life’s joys and challenges. Jane loved the Lord and possessed a strong, unwavering testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. She faithfully served in many callings throughout her life. She was proceeded in death by her mother (1964), her father (1999), and her stepmother Lillian Ellis Oler (1999), and many loving aunts and uncles that loved her dearly. Although she will be missed, there is a grand reunion taking place in paradise. Well done, Jane, until we meet again. Jane is survived by her brothers, Stephen (Sue), David (Terry), Douglas (Susan), and Joseph Oler and stepbrothers Eddie (Marty), Bryce (Debbi), Jay (Sally) , Brad (Don), and Troy (Andra) Ellis, and a stepsister, Denise Daniels.

From Rick Oler and Jan Oler Bentley - Jane was a special lady. She would always bring her horse "Chime" down the block to give us kids rides. She would pull up to the embankment in Grandpa Oler's front yard so the smaller kids could climb on. Fond memories.
