Jane Meryl Kielt, 65, passed peacefully on February 24, 2020 in the company of her loving husband. She was born on March 18, 1954 in Manhattan, the second of two daughters to Roy and Henie Horton.

A prolific artist, Jane’s medium included watercolors and oil pastels that her friends and family will treasure forever. She shared her love for art not only with her three grandchildren, but with schoolchildren as an art teacher. Most recently she taught in the Maple Shade School District.

In retirement, Jane and her husband Larry traveled extensively with their friends. She was an avid reader and loved being a part of two book clubs. She often crocheted afghans and teddy bears for loved ones.

Jane is survived by her husband Larry; daughter Cecelia Gaines and husband Tom; son Andrew Kielt and wife Stephanie; three grandchildren: Hannah Kielt, Walter and Roy Gaines; and countless relatives and friends.

After going through a treatment and being sequestered because of her low immune system I saw Jane walking to her curb to grab the trash cans. We talked for a bit and she said to me, “ you can’t appreciate how great it feels to be able to do something as mundane as bringing in the trash cans”. I have always remembered that and try to consistently enjoy everything in my life. Even the mundane. I am very sad for everyone who knew Jane,, especially her family. We are all smarter, luckier, and better for knowing her.

As a patient of Dr. Kielt I learned of Jane's struggles over the past several years. I made a point of asking about her every time I came in, which was often for quite a while. My heart went out to him in his battle to do everything he could to get her well. I could sense the pain he was feeling and prayed for them both and for their children. Having never met Jane, but thinking the world of Dr. Kielt, I am certain that she was a very special woman. My condolences go out to Dr. Kielt, his children and family. He was tremendously loving, supportive and hopeful for a better outcome. Their love is eternal. May all of you focus on the many happy moments shared and allow them to sustain you through this difficult time. Reach for her often, she is always with you.
