Susie Nousiainen (Adams)
I met Jane at North Shore Elementary, when she joined us midway through third or fourth grade. She was not the most popular girl at first, as new kids are wont to be. I remember the other kids singing a nasty song at her, "Jane, the Pain, she comes from Spain!" To this day, I could never figure out why they were so mean to her; she was lots of fun! She lived in a house 2 blocks from me, on my route to school, so I began to ride my bike or walk with her to and from school. For some reason, I didn't see the Jane the other kids saw, and she and I became BEST FRIENDS!
I truly loved Jane Vogel, and I love her still. One of the reasons I wanted to go to the reunion was to see Jane, and now I can't. When I saw the red rose, I cried for Jane, and I cried for me, too. I wanted to talk over our lives, and wanted to know that she had been happy, dear girl!
To find no obit, and no comment from anyone either...it means things probably stayed the samefor you, Jane. I am sorry. Thank you Joyce, for putting down what you could find out, at least.
I want the world to know that at least one classmate cared about and loved Jane Vogel, and that her life mattered to me, Susie Nousiainen Adams. We shared lots of fun times as kids, and she will be missed as long as I live. You live in my heart, Jane! I love you! Susie

What a shock to hear of her passing! We used to hang out together! I lived in the same neighborhood and we knew each other since Elementary school( North shore) . We would go fishing and crabing because there wasn't a lot to do. Sorry , I miss you! Ivy
