SELINSGROVE - Margaret Jane Schnure, 93, of Charles Avenue, Selinsgrove, passed away at 8:30 p.m. Thursday April 1, 2010, at her home.
She was born Jan. 23, 1917, in Selinsgrove, the daughter of the late William M. and Margaret (Pippet) Schure.
Jane was educated at Selinsgrove High School, Katharine Gibbs School and Wittenberg University, with an undergraduate degree from Susquehanna University and a master's degree in library science from Drexel University.
A veteran of World War II, Jane served in the WAVES and later in the Naval Reserve.
Her many interests led her to New York City where she worked at the Metropolitan Opera and the BBC. She was a charter member of the Robert Shaw Collegiate Chorale.
Some years later Jane opened a retail flower shop and enjoyed that work for many years until she became employed as a librarian at Susquehanna University. Her work at the university spanned 18 years until her retirement in 1981, when she traveled extensively.
Jane loved animals, art, music, especially opera and life in general. She belonged to the Susquehanna Art Society, the Metropolitan Opera Guild, PAPETS, the SPCA and Defenders of Animal Rights.
She was very fortunate in having a very close relationship with a niece and a nephew and their families.
Jane is survived by Sarah Jane and William E. Lindsay, of Huntsville, Utah; James and Alice Schnure, of Milroy; three great-nephews, William and wife Julie Lindsay, Matthew and Jeffrey Schnure; one great-niece, Anne and husband Mike Lane; one great-great-nephew, Connor Lindsay, and one great-great-niece, Katie Lindsay.
She has a strong philosophy of life, love and living. She would say, "It's been a great ride."
A memorial service will be announced at a later date.
Arrangements are by V.L. Seebold Funeral Home, 601 N. High St., Selinsgrove.
