1941-July 10, 2019
Mountain View, California
Jane Marie Gibson (Herrmann), of Mountain View, passed away on July 10, 2019 from pneumonia.
Jane graduated from Palo Alto High School (Class of 1959) and Foothill College. She spent her career working as a Pediatric Medical Assistant. Jane also spent many years volunteering with the Children’s Home Society Adoption Agency.
Jane was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008. The first patient of El Camino Hospital’s Cancer Center, she was successfully treated and in remission for over 10 years. During treatment, Jane began therapeutic painting classes and continued to enjoy painting for the rest of her life.
Friends that lived nearby often gathered on Jane’s front porch for “Friday night cocktails”. She had a kind heart and all who knew Jane felt welcome in her home.
Jane is survived by her two daughters, Gretchen Kelly and Amanda Lowe; son-in-law, Scott Lowe; and three beautiful grandchildren, Ella Jayne (16), Ethan Elliot (9), and Evan Dean (5).
Should friends desire, memorial contributions may be made to El Camino Hospital’s Cancer Center through the El Camino Health Foundation.
