Jane Little Cluff passed away peacefully in her home in Milford, Utah surrounded by her family on September 20, 2021. She was born to John Kenyon Jr & Annamay Ford Little on October 17, 1951 in Kanab, Utah. She received her formative education in Kanab, Utah, graduating with the class of 1969. She became a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, being baptized by her sweetheart Carl shortly after her 18th birthday. They were later sealed in the St George Utah Temple on April 14, 1972.
Jane and Carl moved around as they raised their family of four children. Their lengthiest residences were Kanab, Santa Clara, and Washington, Utah as well as Fredonia, Arizona. She attended BYU and SUU, and received her teaching degree in 1991. Jane loved being a teacher and sharing her patriotism with her students by organizing many Memorial Day and Veterans Day Programs.
Jane dedicated herself to service. She served in many callings in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; Washington County PTA President; and a member of the American Legion Auxiliary for 53 years, 10 of which she served as President.
Jane loved music and had a beautiful voice. She loved to sing and share her love for music with others; especially with children. She owned and operated a franchise of Sunshine Generation for several years. If there was a music festival, play, or choir performance nearby she supported it – usually by participating herself.
Jane often said that her greatest accomplishment was her family. She loved supporting her family in their interests and attended as many games, performances and activities that she could.
Jane and Carl recently celebrated their “50-ish” Wedding Anniversary. They have been blessed not only with four children but also their spouses, 21 grandchildren and 1 great grandson.
Above all Jane loved the Lord. She served in both the St. George Temple and Cedar City Temple. She and Carl accepted a call to serve a mission in Nauvoo, Illinois which was unfortunately cancelled due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. She was cleared to serve a mission once more shortly before receiving the diagnosis of stage IV cancer.
The family is so appreciative to all those who have visited with her the past few weeks. She enjoyed visiting with family and friends, giving her the opportunity to enjoy the mission farewell she was so looking forward to.
Jane is survived by her husband Carl of Milford, Utah; siblings: John K. Little Jr of Kanab, Utah, Frank (Sharon-deceased) Little of Sunland, California, Susann (Bob) Irwin of Kanab, Utah, and Gail (Greg) Hanson of Logan, Utah; children: Meggin (Daniel) Dolberg of Washington, Utah, Ginger (Ken) Rasmussen of St. George, Utah, David (Kandice) Cluff of Milford, Utah, and Daniel (Katie) Cluff of Minersville, Utah; 20 grandchildren and 1 great grandson.
