Jane A. Koontz

May 7, 1930 — June 13, 2022

Jane A. Koontz, age 92, of Dover, passed away Monday, June 13, 2022, in Community Hospice Truman House, New Philadelphia.

Born May 7, 1930, in Massillon, she was the daughter of the late Willard H. and Martha Kester Owens. Jane graduated from Washington High School in Massillon in 1948, and went on to attend Canton Actual Business College. On October 4, 1953, she married John A. C. “Jack” Koontz; the couple would have celebrated 69 years of marriage later this year. Jane was employed by Marr, Knapp & Crawfis in New Philadelphia, and then went to work for Union Hospital, in the business office, from which she retired after more than 30 years of service.

She was a long-time member of St. John’s United Church of Christ in Dover. In retirement, she volunteered with Union Hospital’s Mobile Meals. Some of her favorite pastimes were playing bridge in one of her many clubs, reading, sewing and quilting.

In addition to her husband, Jack, Jane is survived by her children, Thomas Koontz of Beverly Hills, Michigan, and Kathy Koontz of Powell; and her sister-in-law, Vivian Owens of Brewster.

Besides her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother, Robert Owens.

Honoring Jane's wishes, she will be cremated, and a private committal service will be held in Dover Burial Park.

Instead of flowers, the family suggests that contributions in Jane’s memory be made to St. John’s United Church of Christ, 409 N. Wooster Ave., Dover, Ohio 44622, or Community Hospice, 716 Commercial Ave. S.W., New Philadelphia, Ohio 44663.
