After graduation, Jane worked as a nurse at the University of Minnesota Hospital in Minneapolis, MN, mostly in emergency room and recovery room units. She retired from nursing in 1982.
At about the time of her retirement, Jane moved to Bloomington, MN, where she lived for the remainder of her life, much of the time with her beagle companions.
