Obituary of Jane Duncan Wertz
Jane Duncan Wertz, of Troutville Virginia fought a courageous battle with cancer for two years. She won the war because she is now in the arms of Jesus. She passed into the Heavenly kingdom in the early morning hours of Friday, February 4, 2022. Jane was an "Army Brat" born February 8, 1954 in Stuttgart, Germany and was the strongest woman we have ever known.
Giving was her greatest gift. She gave her heart and soul to anyone that was in need. Everyone that knew Jane, knew how much she loved her family, pets, candy, flowers, coffee and not to mention her cigarettes. Jane was one of a kind, a faithful, loving mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt.
Jane was a graduate of Lord Botetourt High School. She married after her graduation and became a military wife. She was preceded in death by her parents, Roscoe and Kitty Duncan; brother, Greg Duncan; sister, Judy Duncan; and nephew, Austin Henley.
Left to cherish her memory are her only daughter, Jodie Wertz-Sutphin (Greg); grandsons, Gavin and Garren; brother, Dennis Duncan; sister, Jill Duncan Crofton (Kelly); nephews, Denny Duncan (Leigh-Anne); Shane Duncan (Kim), Wesley Cox (Brooke); and Matthew Crofton; nieces, Cheri Blizzard (Jake), Julie Cox, Christie York (Scott); many great nieces and great nephews. Special ones near and dear to her heart; Gavin, Perry Gates, India, Audri, and Cameron Cox. She is also survived by her special "furry" son, Jackson.
The family would like to thank Dr. Mark Currie and staff; Good Samaritan Hospice; Morgan Davis, R.N.; and special friends, Rin Fuller and Chaplain Tammy.
"Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.”
