Jane was my grandmother. I was adopted out of the family, so, unfortunately, I only met her for the first time shortly before her passing. The bio below is from one of my "new" cousins.


Maudie Jane McCALL went by her middle name, "Jane". Jane once made a trip to New York to visit her sister's daughter, Mrs. Mary Elizabeth (White) McQuire, and see the big city many years ago. During the Great Depression Jane began a pie making business. She enlisted her sister, Minnie Lee McCall, to help her. They baked pies, loaded them into an old car and drove to restaurants, hotels, and work places to sell their homemade pies.

Jane was a wonderful cook. This was how she supported her family by opening her own restaurant in Cocoa Beach, Brevard County, Florida, called "Jane's Cafe". It was a very popular truck stop for many years. She closed it after her second marriage. Then her second husband, Roma Tanner, had a stroke and was unable to work, so she reopened Jane's Cafe once again.

Even in her 1990s she still wanted to return to the business she loved. Up until her passing she was completely coherent and very charming.
