Lunenburg – Jane L. (Nelson) Emma, 66, of Lunenburg, formerly of Winchendon, passed away Monday, April 17, 2017 in Leominster Hospital.
Jane was born in Fitchburg on June 9, 1950, a daughter of the late Waino and Claire (Hastings) Nelson. She was a 1968 graduate of Fitchburg High School, where she was a Gold F student. For many years she worked in finance for Berkey Photo, Simplex, and Tyco, retiring in 2005.
Jane was once an avid tennis player and really liked spending time with her grandchildren and planting her flower gardens.  She was also a talented knitter and enjoyed creating the most beautiful blankets for her grandchildren.  Perhaps most importantly though, Jane was a loving and caring woman, who was certainly a caregiver to family and friends. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother, and wife; she will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
Jane leaves her husband Robert Emma of Lunenburg; children, Robin Pierce and her husband Mark of Gardner, Mark Emma and wife Christine of Lunenburg; grandchildren, Nicholas, Alisha, Andrew and Sammy; great grandchildren, Ryan, Jaxson and Emmalyn; brothers, Ronald Nelson of Fitchburg, Richard Nelson and wife Sandy of California, Steve Nelson of Fitchburg, and Ted Nelson of Leominster; as well as her nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her sister Gale Normandin.
