Jane (Steinhorst) Lyons was born in Watertown to Arnold and Ruth Steinhorst. She entered into her heavenly reward on Thursday, June 13, 2019.
She was a graduate of Watertown High School and Alverno College. In her final years she was an avid fan of the Brewers, Packers and Badgers, but her true passions were her flowers and helping others. She had a great impact on many lives. As a second grade and kindergarten teacher for 20 years she taught and helped many. Her health issues did not allow her to do many things, but she always found a way to do something. Whether it was making a phone call, sending a card, sending over a bouquet of flowers from her garden, clipping coupons for veterans or just listening. She was a loving, strong, giving and kind daughter, sister, mother, grandmother, aunt, teacher, mentor, sponsor and friend. She is loved by and missed by many.
She is survived by her brother Robert (Dot) Steinhorst; her sons John (Kristine) Lyons and Joe Lyons; grandsons Joseph Lyons and Nicholas Lyons; and several cousins, nieces and nephews, and great-nieces and -nephews.
Her family would especially like to thank the staff at AngelsGrace Hospice in Oconomowoc for making her final days peaceful as possible.
A memorial service will be held on Friday at St. Henry Catholic Church in Watertown at 11 a.m. with visitation from 10 a.m. until the time of services. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations to Angels Grace Hospice in Oconomowoc.
