CAMDEN, MAINE - Jane Bruce Ward formerly of Cross River, New York and Spruce Head, Maine, died December 12, 2019 at Sussman House in Rockport, ME.

Born July 18, 1936 in Englewood, NJ to Margaret De Saussure Kerr and George Tremain Ward, Jane spent her early years in Englewood where she graduated from Dwight School for Girls (now Dwight Englewood School). She received her B.A. from Wheaton College and a Masters degree from Manhattanville College.

Ward leaves her daughters Gabrielle Steinau of Yuma, Arizona and Hillary Steinau of Camden, Maine and her beloved grandsons Alexander and William Jurek.

A lifelong collector of fine contemporary art from Maine and beyond, Ward published her first book of poetry Things You Should Know in 2001. She was active in various community theatre productions in the Mid Coast, seeking comedic cameos to consume her interest and enthusiasm.

So sorry to hear of the passing of Jane, who was once my mother's roommate at Windward. We had many good conversations over the years. She is now free from the tethers that frustrated her so in the final years. I pray that her spirit is soaring on the wind.
