Obituary for Jane Volz

Jane Volz, 68, of Cupertino, CA, passed away quietly on February 2, 2021 after a hard-fought battle with Parkinson’s disease.

Jane was born very prematurely on February 9, 1952 to Florence and William Volz in Peoria, Illinois. She was initially not expected to survive. After graduating from Bergan High School in 1970, she pursued a degree in Business Education at Illinois State University in Normal Illinois.

After graduation she worked in the Chicago school system for two years before returning to work in the Business Department at East Peoria High School. She also taught classes part time at Illinois Central College during the summers. She also continued her education during summer breaks eventually earning a Master’s Degree in Education.

Her premature birth affected her eyesight throughout her life. She endured 14 surgeries on her eyes in attempt to maintain her limited vision. She was greatly blessed by, and deeply appreciated, her helpful and understanding coworkers at EPHS, and the support of her parents which allowed her do the work she so loved.

After the death of her parents, she moved to California where she enjoyed a number of the most enjoyable years of her life traveling frequently with senior groups up and down the state until she was no longer able to do so. She is survived by one brother, Bill Volz, also of Cupertino.

Visitation will be held on Thursday, February 11, 2021 from 10:00 AM until time of funeral services at 11:00 AM at Resurrection Mausoleum. Father Thomas Taylor will officiate and entombment will follow in the Mausoleum.
