Jane A. Folbrecht, age 69 of Jefferson, passed away on Sunday August 9, 2020 at her home in Jefferson surrounded by her family.
She was born on December 26, 1950 in Lancaster Wisconsin. The daughter of Roger and Mary (Hahn) Walker. She married Bruce Folbrecht on August 8, 1981 at St. Clements Catholic Church in Lancaster. The marriage was blessed with a son and daughter.
Jane attended University of Wisconsin Platteville and graduated with a degree in Elementary Education in 1973, and received her Masters in Education a few years later. She had a passion for teaching and helping students reach their full potential. She spent 40 years doing what she loved, mostly in kindergarten (in both Boscobel and Deerfield WI). She retired in 2013 where she spent time working at the local library and taking care of her grandsons. She enjoyed spending time with her family as this was always her #1 priority, lunch dates with friends, reading and continuing to use her teaching skills with her grandsons by making projects and going over letters, numbers and colors whenever she could. She will be remembered for her kindness, sense of humor, guidance, intelligence, patience and the care she had for others. She will be deeply missed by her family, friends, students and all who knew her.
She is survived by her husband of 39 years, Bruce Folbrecht of Jefferson; one son, Christopher (Betsy) Folbrecht of Stoughton, WI; one daughter, Kathleen (Ben) Farrell of Mount Horeb, WI; three grandsons: Graham, Jack and Kevin; two sisters, Nancy Martin of Fennimore and Carol Bentzler of Stoughton.
