HANCOCK — Jane Perkins Alley, 77, was called home to God in the early morning hours of Tuesday, April 21, 2015. She was born on July 11, 1937, to Percy Sargent Perkins and Hazel Tapley Perkins of Brooksville.
In her teen years, Jane worked as a counselor at Seal Bay Camp in Brooksville. She attended Husson College after graduating from George Stevens Academy in 1955. She was looking very much forward to attending her 60th GSA class reunion this June.
As a young, single mother raising three children, Jane worked as a secretary, bookkeeper at Callahan and Kerramerican mines before a 21-year tenure as a bookkeeper and payroll accountant at George Stevens. She performed bookkeeping/payroll duties for several small contractors and prepared tax returns.
Jane enjoyed knitting, her daily newspaper, playing golf with her husband, researching family genealogy and attracting hummingbirds. She never missed a televised game of her Boston Red Sox. She doted on her sweet cats, Zeus and Halo.
Jane is survived by her sister, Joanne Kief of Hancock and brother, Jon Perkins of Lamoine. She is survived by her stepdaughter, Joannie and her husband, Ed Wardwell of Penobscot, son Tony Wyckoff of New Salem, N.C., son Tim Wyckoff and daughter Teri Strong, both of Hancock.
She adored her grandchildren; Jeremiah, Jarrod and Joshua Alley, Ariana and Heather Wardwell, Timothy Wyckoff, Riley Russell, Margaret Wyckoff, Danielle White, and great-granddaughter, Alyssa Wyckoff.
Jane was predeceased by Phillip Alley of Blue Hill, her beloved husband of 20 years, as well as her stepson, Kevin Alley, originally of Blue Hill. She will be grieved and greatly missed by many dear friends and relatives in Downeast Maine. Jane passed on what would have been her husbands 82nd birthday.
Jane will be laid to eternal rest alongside her husband at Mt. Rest Cemetery in Brooksville. A celebration of life service will be held later this summer. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Hancock County SPCA, 141 Bar Harbor Rd., Trenton, ME 04605.
