Birth: Jun. 25, 1930
Death: Sep. 20, 2008

Jane Lou Forbus was born June 25, 1930 and passed away on Saturday, September 20, 2008 after a prolonged illness in her home in Poteet, Texas.

Jane is survived by her husband of 59 years, Ross Forbus of Poteet, TX, three children, Lesa Forbus of San Antonio, TX, Christa Napier of San Antonio, TX and Tim Forbus of Poteet, TX, a brother Larry Wayne McCraw of Abilene, two sisters, Helen Akens of Clyde, TX and Patsy Faye Nettles of Grand Praire, three grandchildren, Corbey, Christopher and Colton, several nieces and nephews and Sue Brown Elizondo, a dear friend that everyone in the family considered a daughter and a sister.

She was predeceased by her parents Howard McCraw and Ovelle (Stricklin) McCraw and step father J. B. Eaton.

Jane worked at Atascosa Veterinarian Clinic for Dr. Todd Oliver and retired after 17 years of service. Her love for animals and for those she worked with brought her enormous happiness during those years.
She was a member of Trinity Baptist Church and a Sunday School teacher for most of her years in Pleasanton. She had a caring and kind heart, which not only touched family and friends, but also those she did not even know. Her smile and laugh was contagious and uplifting. Her love for her family, friends and God was deep and genuine. She will be dearly missed.

The funeral service will be at 10:00AM on Wednesday, September 24, 2008 at the funeral home.
