Jane Adams Petrie passed away peacefully on March 23 in Mansfield, Ohio. She was 96 years old.
Jane was a longtime resident of Great Neck and Southold. She and her husband of 65 years, Donald J. Petrie, loved the north shore of Long Island. They began spending summers in Peconic in 1958, and in 1970 achieved their lifelong dream of building their own home in Southold.
Jane and Don were nature lovers and gardeners, and spent many years relaxing on their deck, enjoying their view of the Long Island Sound. They loved the tranquility and peace that their home brought them, and they passed on this love to their five children and eight grandchildren. Jane was a creative, intelligent and authentic lady, who liked to laugh and enjoyed a good yarn.
She is survived by her sons, Scott and Doug; her daughters, Anne, Elizabeth and Susan; and her eight grandchildren: Taylor and Jane Gleaves, Alexa and Henry Petrie, Willys and Kathryn DeVoll, and Lily and Beckett Badertscher.
