Jane Frances (Fulton) Taylor, beloved mother, Nana, and Great-Nana, was born on September 22, 1937 in Manhattan, KS to Don Arthur Fulton and Myrna (Smith) Fulton. She died on April 11, 2020, surrounded by her daughters, in Wichita, KS. Don Fulton died in 1943, leaving his widow, Myrna, and six-year old daughter, Jane. In 1947, Myrna married Kenneth Alonzo Messner, whom Jane regarded as her dad from that time on. Jane lived in Manhattan and attended schools there, graduating from Kansas State University in 1959. She taught in Wyandotte County, KS from 1959-1961. On February 18, 1961, she was united in marriage with Peter Redman. Four daughters were born to this union: Kirsten Suzanne, Heidi Jane, Gretchen Anne, and Britt Lawson. The family lived in Connecticut and New Jersey from 1962 to 1975. They returned to Kansas in 1975 and resided in Wichita. Peter and Jane were married from 1961-1983. Jane was remarried to John Scott Taylor from 1986-2005. Jane spent many years as a licensed realtor in Wichita before returning to teaching. She taught for eight years for USD 260, Derby, KS. Jane is survived by her four daughters: Kirsten (Mack) Price; Heidi (Keith) Neuenswander; Gretchen (Raymond W Grundmeyer III) Schrag; and Britt (Ron) Messner.

She also leaves Hitch, her precious pup, whom she loved and adored. He and Hoss brought her love and light, each and every day. Jane will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
