Jane H. Clair

At the age of 88, Jane H. Troutman Clair, of Philadelphia, Pa, peacefully went to be with her Lord on Friday, December 22, 2023, surrounded by her loving family.

Jane was born in Altoona, Pa on July 21 of 1935 to parents Pastor Walter Troutman and Stella Mary, nee. Bright. One of 10 children, the family moved to Philadelphia when Jane was 6. A life-long member of Faith Tabernacle Congregation, she attended school for 9 years. She worked for many years at Haegele's Bakery in Mayfair, as well as Soabar while it was still located in Wissinoming.

In 1958, she married Robert A. Clair, Sr. and spent nearly 49 cherished years together, raising their four children. Bob and Jane dedicated their lives to their family and children. They also served many of the members of the church by catering a number of wedding receptions. Together they organized and ran many camping trips and events for the young adults of the church. They greatly enjoyed traveling and camping all throughout the United States, first using tents, then later Bob's converted pick-up truck as well as a pop-up trailer. They later enjoyed a more permanent residence in a campground near the Jersey shore, which they shared with family and friends for many years.

Known as Mom to her children, Gram to her grandchildren, Nana to her great grandchildren, and Aunt Jane to her many nieces and nephews, Jane always had time for her family. One of her favorite past-times was sitting around the table, surrounded by family. She loved to make everyone's favorite food when she knew you were coming to visit, and would always encourage you to "eat up," because there was always plenty more. A particular favorite dessert of the family was her Milk Pie. Many have tried to make it themselves, but with directions like, "a pinch of this," and "a little bit of that," nobody has gotten it quite right. We're convinced it's because whenever anyone else has tried, it was always missing the key ingredient: her love.

She attended Saint Jerome's Grade School in the Bronx, Cathedral High School in Manhattan, and was a graduate of Roxborough High School, Philadelphia.

She met the love of her life, John "Bud" Haney, in the early 50's. Bud got his nickname because of his easy going nature and friendliness. They married on May 8, 1954 and had three sons-- T. Kevin, Dennis, and John Jr. Very sadly, Bud fell seriously ill and died in 1959. Although devastated by her husband's very early passing, Anne proved to be an incredibly strong-willed person with an admirable faith-based set of morals and ethics. Her sons were four, two, and one year(s) of age when her husband died. However, Anne persevered and made sure first thing that her boys knew right from wrong. She also made certain they knew the value of education, and the importance of being good and productive citizens. Anne was a hard worker throughout her entire life and retired from the IRS in 1985. While raising her boys, she ran a tight but completely loving ship, and she always kept a tidy household. She enjoyed taking good healthy walks, especially to go shopping, and almost always for others. She devoted great time to raising her children, and also took pleasure in occasionally reading true-to-life mystery books. She was a devout Catholic with an unwavering faith in God, and a 64-year parishioner of Saint Matthew's RC Church. Anne was also a devoted grandmother, and loved spending time with family, especially at the South Jersey shore, particularly Sea Isle City in the 60-70's, and more so Brigantine for the past 40 years. As she progressed through life, she developed a wonderful sense of humor and loved laughing with others.

Anne is survived by her sons John, Dennis (Mindy), and Thomas Kevin. Grandchildren Ian (Carrie), Garrett (Sherlyn), Megan, Eric, and Dennis Jr (DJ). Great-grandchildren Honor, Taryn, and Melody, as well as brother-in-law Tom Haney. She's also survived by many nieces, nephews, grand nieces and grand nephews.

Also Brother-in-law and sister-in-law Jim and Betty Haney, sister-in-law Jean (Haney) O'Brien, and sister-in-law Roberta Haney.
