Jane was a proud leap year baby, born February 29th, 1936 near Dows, Iowa and graduated high school from Waterloo West. She was the youngest of seven children born to Harry Fredrick Larsson and Iris Opal (Tuel) Larsson.

Jane was wed to Harry T. Sorensen on April 16th, 1954 at the Little Brown Church in Nashua, Iowa. Since 1969, they made Protivin their home. They were married for 48 years at the time of Harry’s death in 2003. To this union six children were born; ZoAnn, Ted, Gregory, Cindy, Malinda and Chad.

Jane was the Director of Housekeeping at the at the Howard County Hospital for years following jobs at Turkey Valley Community School and Bishops in Waterloo.

Jane was a devoted member of Crane Creek Immanuel Lutheran Church and the Kountry Kitchen Klub. She loved her many dogs over the years, camping with Harry, making fried chicken for a house full of family, and rumor has it, an occasional trip to the riverboat. Jane had a knack for striking up a conversation with anyone she came across and was always in the corner of the underdog. She will be sadly missed by her family and many friends.

Jane is survived by her six children; ZoAnn Bear (John) from New Hampton, Iowa, Ted A. Sorensen (Laurie) from New Hampton, Iowa, Gregory L. Sorensen (Sondra) from Sandy, Utah, Cindy J. Lenehan (Robert) from Alta Vista, Iowa, Malinda J. Horkheimer (Chip) from Hazleton, Iowa and Chad F. Sorensen (Ellen) from Kasson, Minnesota. She is also survived by 17 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren, and two sisters, Flora Specht from Danville, Iowa and Donna Ross from Mazeppa, Minnesota.

She was preceded in death by her husband; three brothers, Harry Larsson Jr., Craig Larsson, and Gene Larsson; one sister, Bonnie Judson.
