In memory of

Jane F. Brunson Livingston

Jane Frances Meyer was born October 11, 1964, in Tilden, Nebraska, the daughter of Frank and Agnes Meyer. She graduated in 1982 and moved to South Dakota.

Jane did so many things in her life and loved running Janes’ Boardwalk Pizza. She made so many friends there from all over the world. She had so many close friendships.
