Inda Jane Russell Regan died Wednesday, May 6, 2020, at Morning Pointe Residence in Hixson, Tenn. She was born on December 16, 1929, in Jackson. She married Jesse Marvin Regan in 1947. After she retired from Waterways Experiment Station, they traveled the country for over 25 years with the Air Stream Travel Club.
Jane had the nurturing gifts of generosity, kindness, wisdom, understanding, wise counsel, warmth, knowledge, and a dedicated faith in the Lord. Her favorite Bible passage was “Be Still and Know that “I Am God.” She was an incredibly strong, courageous, and thoughtful person who met everyone with her infectious smile. In her last hours, she was still able to shine and brought light to all those around her. Her light will continue to shine in all of us.
She was known for her many talents such as cooking, baking, canning and sewing. She was most known for her famous bread and butter pickles and her succulent fried chicken. Her other talent was playing the piano and she lovingly played for over 60 yrs at Rocky Springs UMC. One of her most famous quotes was “In time this too shall pass.”
She was preceded in death by her husband, Jesse and two brothers.
