After high school she was married to her first husband and had their first daughter together, Tinamarie, shortly after they had their second daughter, Debbie-Ann. After ten years of marriage, Homer and Jane decided to divorce.
Jane then met Talton, her loving husband of 53 years. Talton came back from Vietnam and immediately knew that was his future wife. Being a military spouse caused her to move around to places such as Hawaii and Europe along with their children.
In her later years, she worked for Dillards in Manhattan, Kansas. She took this position because of her love of fashion and clothing. She enjoyed working this job for two years.
