Jane Johnson Eck, age 60, was born April 18th, 1953, and taken to our Lord on August 17, 2013. An Arizona native, she was brought into the world at Phoenix St Joe’s Hospital. She graduated from Westwood High School and attended Arizona State University. Her strong faith in God led to a lifetime of commitment to others and the community where she lived. Jane managed the largest senior center in Arizona, the Red Mountain Multi-Generational Center, before moving to Globe, where she was the Director of the Globe Active Adult Center. She was so very proud of the difference she could make in people’s lives every day. The role of the Center has expanded, as did her beloved Meal on Wheels campaign. She absolutely loved this community. It was her home.
Robert W. Eck was a lucky man and on June 4, 1994, he married Jane at Holy Trinity. They both had a passion for the outdoors, which eventually led to moving from the valley to the wonderful town of Globe. Holy Angels Church quickly became her spiritual home, and she dearly loved the church and the beauty and balance it brought to her life. A great mother to all who would stay still, the best sister a sibling could ever have and a loving daughter to her mother. Jane has left us for a better place and our hearts are heavy with loss.
She was preceded in death by her father Kenneth B. Johnson. Jane is survived by her husband Robert W. Eck, his parents Robert and Regina Eck, her daughter and husband Julee & Ben Recker, son and wife Dylan & Kelly Eck, her son Ryan Eck, son & wife Chris and Kym Childers, her mother, Ann A. Webb, siblings, Morgan & Mary Johnson, Janice & BR Moore, Denver & Billy Jo Johnson, eight grandchildren, and so many precious friends.
