Mary Jane Stone Kane, 90, Brandywine

Mary Jane Stone Kane, 90, of Brandywine, formerly of Baltimore and Casselberry, Fla., died of complications from congestive heart failure Jan. 13, 2013.

She was born in Baltimore to the late Irving and the late Nellie Stone.

She was very proud and spoke often of her first job with the Gulf Oil Company in downtown Baltimore.

She married Bruce R. Kane in 1957, and they moved to Hollywood, Fla., in 1963. In 1969 the family relocated to the Winter Park, Fla., area, and eventually to Casselberry. While in Central Florida she worked for, and retired from, Ivey’s Department Store as a store executive, where she managed the cash office. She was known by many for her habit of wearing white gloves and a hat. She loved the simple things in life: the beach, watching baseball on TV (especially the Atlanta Braves) and she especially loved Sadie, a 4-month old puppy her daughter rescued from a shelter.

She moved to Brandywine in 2010 with her husband and lived with her daughter and son-in-law.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband as well as a sister, Geraldine S. Bassett.

She is survived by her daughter, Erin Kane Monfort, and her husband, Jim, of Brandywine; son, Bruce Russell “Rusty” Kane II, and his wife, Robin, of Green Cove Springs, Fla.; three grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; cousin, Bernice Warner, of Bel Air; and longtime family friend, Ola Coffee, of Orlando, Fla.

Memorial contributions may be made to Hospice of Charles County, Memorial Donations, 2505 Davis Road, Waldorf, MD 20603, or to a local ASPCA or no-kill animal shelter.

Arrangements are being handled by Huntt Funeral Home, Waldorf.
