Mrs. Jane Balser, a longtime time resident of Skagit Valley died in Mount Vernon on Friday, January 29th, 2016. She was born in Wheaton, Illinois on June 24th, 1928 to James and Mary Kaelin. Jane married Donald Balser on March 5, 1949. When Jane met Don she knew her life had changed from that moment on. An epiphany, Don once said. Amazing he knew then this pretty, small town gal would be the woman of his dreams – the finest wife and companion he could ever hope for. Jane knew, too, and went with complete devotion into their love, family and future.Starting from lean times they progressed ever forward towards their dreams and ideals. Together they had a true love, the kind poems are inspired from. Jane's happiness was completed by her children. Being a wife and mother was the world she wanted most. She fulfilled these roles with the love and devotion of a person having their dreams come true. It often was for her. She had a lifelong romance, her idyllic family, security, and lots of creature comforts.At the right points in all of this was also a lot of fun and adventure. Jane's life was complete in ways most may never get to experience. So much so, that even the inevitable tragedies of life and loss eventually only served to enrich personality of this lovely soul.So, please remember her smile and sparkle and help us remember her ways forever. Survivors are three sons, Jim Balser of Mount Vernon, John Balser and wife Shelley of Eastern Washington, Eric Balser of Mount Vernon, grandchildren Tyler Balser and wife Lexi, Kaelin and husband Luke Smith, Tamara Kohn, Daniel Kohn, great grand-children Owen Smith and Gia Smith, son-in-law Eli Kohn and wife Aida, and her dear friend and guardian angel on earth, Carsi Padrnos and family.Funeral Services will be held at Kern Funeral Chapel on Saturday, February 6, 2016 at 10 a.m. You may offer your condolences and share memories of Jane to her family online at www.kernfuneralhome.com
