Jane M. Glass Belcher, age 82, of Meadowview, Va. passed away on Wednesday, October 16, 2019.
Jane was a member of the Landmark Baptist Church in Glade Spring, Va. She loved her church family and her heart’s desire was for everyone to give their life to the Lord. When talking with Jane she let you know quickly that she loved the Lord and wanted everybody else to do the same. She was a devoted and caring wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, neighbor and friend. She loved her family and friends and prayed for them every day.
Jane was preceded in death by her parents, Henry and Betty Humphrey Glass; her husband, Carl H. Belcher; and her siblings; Emmett Glass, Garland Glass, Eugene Glass, Clyde Glass, Margie Poole and Genevieve Walden.
Jane is survived by her children: Amanda (Bobby) Testerman of Lynchburg, Va.; Darrall (Ruth Ann) Belcher of Meadowview, Va.; Dennis Belcher of Glade Spring, Va. and Joyce Rasnick of Chilhowie, Va.; grandchildren, Sarah Testerman, Chris Belcher, Casey Belcher, Danielle (Geovanny) Aviles, Mindy Belcher, Blake Belcher and Derrick (Tonya) Rasnick; great grandchildren, Josh Belcher, Connor Rasnick, KaLea Belcher and Eliana, Liam and Lucas Aviles. She is also survived by one sister, two brothers, and five sister-in-laws: Louella Wolfe of Piney Flats, Tenn; Alfred (Sue) Glass of Chilhowie, Va.; Frank Glass of Abingdon, Va.; Maxie Glass of Pulaski, Va.; Jean Belcher of Glade Spring, Va.; Frances Glass of Pulaki, Va.; Phyllis Belcher of Abingdon, Va; Ruth Belcher of Bristol, Tenn. and many cousins, nieces and nephews.
Jane had a special friend, Eddie Counts, with whom she shared many conversations about farming, cows and anything else to do with farming but especially about the Lord. She had a special roommate while at Valley Health Care in Chilhowie that she grew to love and enjoyed talking to, Mary Dixon. She also had a very special caregiver that became part of her family that Jane loved and trusted, Yvonne Bechler. The family gives many thanks to these two special ladies for caring about and loving their mother so sweetly. The family would also like to thank the following for the special care given recently: Johnston Memorial Hospital third floor staff; the Hospice House in Bristol and especially James, Betty and Janet.
