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

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

She was very proud and spoke often of her first job with the Gulf Oil Co. 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 as “the lady with the white gloves and hat.” She loved the simple things in life — the beach, watching baseball on TV (especially the Atlanta Braves) and her little friend, Sadie, a 4-month-old Pekachi puppy her daughter rescued from an animal 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 and a sister, Geraldine S. Bassett. She is survived by her daughter, Erin Kane Monfort and her husband, Jim, of Brandywine, formerly of Hollywood; 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 in Waldorf.
