Jane H. Sinclair passed away peacefully at home on Wednesday, January 25, 2012. Rachel Jane was born to James Carlton and Rachel Collison Hastings on May 16, 1921 in Cambridge, MD. From her early years, she and her parents lived in the big white colonial at the east end of Main Street.

Jane graduated from Newark High School and the Women's College at the University of Delaware. She also took advantage of courses and volunteered for many years as a reading tutor at West Park Place Elementary School.

On June 28, 1941, she married John P. Sinclair with whom she shared over 70 years until his death in September. They were a wonderful example of true love. Jane was an active member of the University Drama Group and enjoyed the theatre productions of the PTTP. She and Jack also traveled with the Delaware Theatre Company to see productions in England. She volunteered with the Needlework Guild for many years. With Jack she supported the Newark Senior Center, especially enjoying the dances.

In the summer, Jane was happiest sailing her Sunfish, Hyacinith, on Rehoboth Bay. In the winter she and Jack skied at Snowmass, CO, where they had a condo for 20 years. Together the two of them traveled extensively pursuing their many recreational interests. Jack and Jane created many wonderful memories for their children and grandchildren. Whether at the beach or on the ski slopes or on a sailboat, family fun was important to them.

Jane is survived by her two children, Michael G. Sinclair and Elizabeth S. Tiffany; their spouses, Susan W. Sinclair and Harold E. Tiffany III; four grandchildren, Jason, Pryor, Jeanne, and Rose; and nine great-grandchildren.

Services will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Newark Free Library or Compassionate Care Hospice, c/o R.T. Foard & Jones Funeral Home, Inc., 122 West Main Street, Newark, DE 19711.
