Mrs. Elder was born on March 09, 1947, in Belleville Illinois. She is preceded in death by her parents, Maurice and Ruth Shiver Lindauer and brother, Jack Lindauer.

Mrs. Jane was certainly a true Classy Southern Lady; she loved life, lived it to the fullest and loved her Sweet Tea.

She was a devoted Christian lady to her husband, family, close circle of friends, to all her students she taught (for over 40 years), and to her Lord and church, Hazlehurst First Methodist.

She loved her family and enjoyed spending time with them, she will truly be missed.

Survivors include her husband, Mr. Buck Elder of Hazlehurst, daughter,  Jennifer Hufford (Peter Smith), grandson, Cole Hufford of Carmel, Indiana; son, Jonathan Elder (Erin),  grandchildren, Rosemary and Beau Elder of Brooklyn, New York; sister, Rosemary Brannen (Bill) of Valdosta.
