NAPOLEON — Jane Christine Buenger, 64, Napoleon, Ohio, passed away July 2, 2019.
She was born September 8, 1954, in Napoleon, to Frederick and Laura (Austermiller) Kruse. Jane married the love of her life, Ronald, on April 24, 1976, at St. Paul Lutheran Church Liberty Center and enjoyed 43 years together.
Jane worked for 33 years at Northcrest Nursing Home as an STNA. Her selfless, loving personality gave her great enjoyment to take care of other people. She enjoyed spending time with her family, checking in on friends and working along side her co-workers. When relaxing at home, Jane could be found cheering on the Cleveland Browns or Ohio State Buckeyes; or catching up on her favorite reality TV shows. She was an advocate for the 4H clubs and liked going to the Henry County Fair to watch the 4H judging or getting her favorite fair fries and a milkshake. Jane loved to attend anything her grandchildren were involved in, especially Napoleon football games and watching the drum line perform at halftime.
She is survived by her husband, Ron; children, Amy (Derek) Meyer, Angela (Alex) Cunningham and honorary son, David Rettig; grandchildren, Benjamin Aschliman Jr., Albert Cunningham, Kruse Cunningham, Silas Cunningham, Lorelei Cunningham, and honorary grandchildren, Eric and Bella Rettig.
