Mrs. Jane (Marquardt) Smith
February 17, 1925 - January 17, 2017
Stoneham, Massachusetts

Come, you who are blessed by my Father. Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. One can only imagine those were the words Jane heard the Lord speak to her.
In the years of our acquaintance she carried on the mission of her dear brother, Fr. Henry, with grace, generosity, determination and perseverance. She always sought only the best for the men and women who lived at Fernald and the Marquardt Nursing Center. God in His infinite goodness and wisdom has spared her the heartbreak of Marquardt's closure. Rest in peace Jane.

Jane was a pillar of the Fernald Chapel. I'll remember Jane in so many positive ways - with a big smile, kind hearted and every strand of hair in place! I know that she was well loved and respected.
With love and remembrance,

My thought and prayers are with Jane's family and I hope their memories of this dear woman bring them peace and solace.
Jane was a beautiful person with an enormous heart and a compassionate spirit.
I had the privilege of knowing her through my many years working at the Fernald Center. Jane brought joy and smiles to those who lived at Fernald as well as to those in the surrounding community who came to visit the Activity Center. Through the Fr. Henry Fund, Jane provided generous support to countless special events and causes, enriching the lives of so many. I held an annual ceramics show at the AC and, with Jane's help, those who participated in the show enjoyed a lovely celebratory evening, taking pride in their work and sharing a special party with their families and friends.
Jane was loved and esteemed and, during her time on this earth, surely made a positive impact on the lives of so many people. I believe that she is now in a place of light and peace. She will be well remembered and truly missed.
