Jane Doudna Amos

Jane Doudna Amos, 82, of Parsons went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Sunday, Oct. 11, 2020.

Jane was born on Nov. 16, 1937, in Mound City to Oliver and Ollie (Green) Doudna.

Jane was a 1956 graduate of Osawatomie High School and had a long administrative assistant career, spending over 20 years with State Farm Insurance in Tulsa, retiring in 1992.

Her many interests included genealogy, having extensively researched the Doudna and Green names. She found she was a direct descendant of Samuel Jordan, founder of Jamestown, Virginia, in 1608.

She also spent many years building and renovating homes. She and John Amos built their home in Bristol, Oklahoma, from the ground up and one in Oskaloosa. After selling that home, she and cousin Jerry renovated homes in Thayer, Moran and Parsons.

She is survived by her daughter, Darla Calvert, and her husband, Doyle, of Dallas, Texas; a son, John James III, of Tulsa; a granddaughter, Stacey Prock and her husband, Marshall, of Tulsa; a sister, Ruth Gray of Jacksonville, Arkansas; a special cousin, Jerry Smith of Parsons; and many nieces, nephews and friends.

Jane was preceded in death by her parents; twin sons, Mark and Michael Amos; the father of her children, John James Amos Jr.; and five siblings, Bernice Cornett, Charles Doudna, Bill Doudna, Carl Doudna and Larry Doudna.

The visitation and service were Wednesday at Eddy-Birchard Funeral Home of Osawatomie.

Memorials are suggested to the Wounded Warriors Project or St. Joseph Indian School of South Dakota.
