Jane Lucille Bromenshenkel was born October 14, 1934 in Sauk Centre, Minnesota to Albert and Elizabeth (Meyer) Bromenshenkel. She graduated from Sauk Centre High School in 1952. She was united in marriage to Cyril Meyer on August 20, 1957 at St. Paul’s Catholic Church in Sauk Centre. Jane worked at First State Bank in Sauk Centre until she decided to devote her time and energy to managing the household and raising their four children.
She was a member of St. Paul’s Catholic Church in Sauk Centre where she sang in the church choir for over 25 years and was president for many years of the Christian Mothers. Jane was devoted to her faith through praying chaplets for each of her grandchildren, attending Chapel, praying at least three rosary’s a day and developed a strong relationship with the Sisters at the Poor Clares Monastery in Sauk Rapids. Her spirit of Christmas was infectious and will always be remembered by her family. Jane was known for her banana bread. She won second place at the Stearns County Fair and would keep track of the number of loaves she baked; her record was over 500 in a single year. Jane was an avid bowler, she taught herself to play the accordion and became accomplished enough to be invited to play on KASM radio, she enjoyed dancing, playing cards, making jewelry trees, beating her grandchildren at a game of aggravation and loved attending their sporting events, school activities and church functions. Her favorite past time was spending time with her husband, kids, grandkids, great-grandkids, extended family and dear friends.
