Jane Bray Flax Wolfe
Jane Bray Flax Wolfe, RN, 67, of Richmond, died July 9, 2014, after a brief illness. She was predeceased by her parents, Robert and Frances Dennis Bray of Urbanna.
She is survived by sons, Robert Aaron Flax (Anne Richmond Seville) of Alexandria, and Jonathan Michael Flax (Agathe-Eleonore Bance) of NYC; sister, Linda Bray Presson (Marvin Lee Presson Jr.) of Richmond and Urbanna; nephew, Matthew Waring Presson (Carmen Christine Germino) of Richmond; beloved cat, Catherine; and extended family.
After graduating from Middlesex High School in 1964, Jane earned her BS degree in Nursing from The Medical College of Virginia, where she practiced psychiatric nursing, and later practiced at Riverside Hospital, The Virginia Home, and then private nursing. After that time, she was beset by years of MS and other chronic illnesses, ending the nursing career she loved. Jane resolved to remain as independent as possible.
Her family thanks all who have been so supportive. Ashes will be interred in the Ware-Waring-Bray cemetery at “Tuscarora” in Essex County at a later date. Donations may be made in Jane and Catherine’s names to local animal shelters or to the SPCA to go toward animal rescue and adoption.
