Jane Gleason Obituary

Jane Gleason of Virginia Beach died peacefully of old age on May 4, 2024 at King’s Grant House in Virginia Beach. She was predeceased by her parents, Glenn and Ethel Dill, a brother, Glenn Dill Jr. who was killed in action during the Korean War, a son, Robert “Bobby” Gleason of Virginia Beach, and a son-in-law, Barry Koval of Richmond.


Born in Camden, New Jersey in 1930, Jane graduated from Oceana High School in 1948. She earned a bachelor’s degree from the College of William and Mary in sociology in 1951 and a master’s degree in social work from Virginia Commonwealth University in 1975. She had four children during a tumultuous marriage before seeking employment with the cities of Chesapeake and Hampton as a social worker. She worked as a specialist in foster care and adoption, positively impacting the lives of myriad Tidewater area children. After retiring, Jane stayed active in the community as a 1990 and 2000 census taker and as a longtime volunteer worker at Virginia Beach General Hospital. She resided on 67th St. in Virginia Beach for three decades before relocating to First Colonial Inn and ultimately to King’s Grant House.


Ms. Gleason is survived by one son, Michael Gleason and wife Arlyn of Richmond, and two daughters, Kathi McGovern and husband John of Virginia Beach, and Patte Koval of Richmond. She is also survived by four grandchildren, Katie Gostel and husband U.S. Navy Cdr. Christopher Gostel, Lindsey Gleason, Brittany Gleason and husband Joshua Lee, their mother Debbie Cook, and Taylor Logue and wife Catherine Kennedy; and three great-grandchildren, Cullen and Virginia Gostel, and Alexander “Bones” Logue.


The family extends appreciation to the kind-hearted and dedicated caregivers of King’s Grant House and, more recently, Trinity Hospice. A graveside memorial service and burial will take place in July at Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Virginia Beach Rescue Squad.
