Eva Jane Shonk, age 85, known  as “Jane” to her loved ones, passed away on March 25, 2024, in New Philadelphia, Ohio. 


She was born on June 23, 1938, in Jackson Mills, West Virginia, to her parents Clifton D. Reed and Freda A. Nickolson.

During her lifetime, Jane dedicated many years of service as an inspector at the Timken Company. Her commitment and work ethic left a lasting impression on all who had the pleasure of knowing her. Beyond her professional endeavors, Jane had a rich tapestry of interests that brought joy to her life. She found solace in painting, exploring new destinations through travel, and listening to the soul-stirring melodies of country music.  She attended Pleasant Hill Baptist Church in Canton, Ohio.  


She also leaves behind three daughters; Holly Jo (Jim) George of Sherrodsville, Kathy Jane (Mark) Grimm of Bergholz, Carol Ann (Don) Wardell of Newcomerstown; her brother, Nelson (Kathy) Reed of New Philadelphia; eleven grandchildren; many great-grandchildren; her niece, Donnetta Bickford; nephews, Donald K.
