On October 29, 1940, twin girls, Jane and Jeanine were born to Peter and Daisy Sikkema in Clinton, IA. They grew up in Fulton, IL, and later in her life, Jane moved to Hammett House in Sterling, IL. She was honored to work at Self Help Enterprises in Sterling and was proud to say she was making “her own money”. She looked forward to going to work every day. Throughout her life, Jane made a huge impression on her siblings’ lives. She experienced so many challenges in her lifetime, but she persevered. She taught them what love is all about.
She is survived by her brother, V. “Doc” (Alva) Sikkema of Carroll, IA; her twin sister, Jeanine Katje of Martin, MI; several nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents and her brother-in-law, John Katje.
A private family graveside service will be held at Fulton Township Cemetery with the Fulton Chapel of the Bosma-Renkes Funeral Home in charge of arrangements.
Jane will be remembered as a bright spot in so many lives.
