Jane Ann Markgraf of Scranton passed on Thursday, May 21; she was 80 years old. Jane was born and raised in Trenton, NJ, and spent the majority of her years living in Trenton, NJ, Hampton Township, NJ, and Morrisville, PA. She semi-retired to Myrtle Beach, SC. Jane loved gatherings at the parental family residence on Culver Lake in Branchville, NJ. She was an avid golfer, loved traveling, and jumping on her motorcycle. In her younger years she was a softball player, where she once accomplished the exceptionally rare feat of achieving seven hits in seven at bats in an official league game - a newspaper headlining event. She was especially fond of adventures with her constant companion, her daughter Stephanie, as her “Road Dog” in the final years of her life; she was never one to sit still. Jane was also never one to hold her tongue, and was one to voice her opinion in the support of those around her; something she has passed on to her children. She was an independent spirit and a strong advocate for her family. She would like to be remembered as a woman who never gave into her illness and continued to live her life on her terms.
Jane is survived by her children James Lansing and his fiance Dawn Marino of Jersey City, NJ; Celeste Markgraf of Daytona Beach, FL; Douglas Markgraf and his companion Ewa Soszynski, of Jefferson, NJ; and Stephanie Markgraf and her companion Robert Galdieri of Scranton, PA. She is also survived by her loving grandchildren Gabrielle Drummond of Baltimore, MD and Melanie Thoma and Alexander Markgraf both of Jefferson, NJ; and her remaining siblings Page Lansing and John Lansing, both of Trenton NJ; Lou Lansing, of Holden Beach, NC, and Marge Bauer of Tucson, AZ. She was preceded in death by her loving sisters Maryann Wagner and Francis Devine. Funeral arrangements will be private.
Arrangements have been entrusted to the Miller Bean Funeral Home Inc., 436 Cedar Ave. Scranton.

Steph and Celeste so sorry for your loss. I met Jane a few times, she was very nice to me. I did not know of her past till reading this Obit. WTG Jane, we could’ve been friends and biker buddies. R.I.P. pretty lady

I just wanted to extend my deepest condolences to all of the family and friends who are grieving the loss of Jane. I do not know all of the family, and cannot claim to have even known Jane that well, however I did know of the amazing relationship that she had with her daughter Stephanie, who has always been a friend of mine even through my own personal struggles. Instilled in her was a ‘Speak your truth’, yet also a kind, generous, forgiving and charitable heart of giving. To see the pure love and joy being expressed from mother to daughter as I followed their many adventures together. It brought me great joy. I know that no amount of words will ever fill that void that will now be left with Janes passing. However I also have a deep seeded believe that they never actually part ways with us. For we carry them in the acts of kindness that we were taught by them. And witnessing it from Stephanie on more that one occasion. It reinforces this. That spirit was smoothly transferred to carry on and therefore Janes spirit will carry on through those who knew her as well. God bless. Prayers for strength and faith as you traverse through this most difficult time.
