Ellen Jane Byers
It is with great sadness that the family of Jane Byers, loving wife of Christopher Byers, announces her passing, which occurred on Wednesday, January 9, 2019 at the Saint John Regional Hospital. Born in Saint John on October 11, 1955, she was the daughter of the late Allison and Zelda (Burton) Briggs.
Jane graduated from Saint John vocational school in 1974 specializing in home economics. She was a proud member of the Women’s Institute, an organization committed to helping women learn valuable life skills. She loved country music, and enjoyed attending live concerts.
She will be missed by her husband Christopher W. Byers of 39 years; a brother, Kenneth Kelly; as well as several cousins, friends and her beloved dog, Bebee. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by an infant brother, Stephen.
Arrangements are under the care of Brenan’s Bay View Funeral Home, 1461 Manawagonish Rd. Saint John, NB (634-7425). In keeping with Jane’s wishes, no services will be held at this time. The family will arrange a graveside service at Welsford Community Cemetery at a later date. For those who wish, remembrances may be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association or a charity of the donor’s choice.
