Was one of those teachers that always motivated her students that they could always be the best they could be all they had to do was try. Guess that’s why I have always done the same with my students. RIP Mrs. Coyle and thanks for positively impacting my life.

I am saddened that I missed her service. Jane was a wonderful woman who genuinely cared for the kids that she taught and was very generous in helping with the soccer program at Dixie. My experience in high school was only made better because of her presence. Mike, know that you and your family are in my thoughts.

I have such wonderful memories of my days of teaching with Jane. She was a lovely lady who always had a twinkle in her eye. She loved kids and spent extra hours helping out such as the many hours she devoted as soccer coach. She will be missed by not only her family but her former students and fellow faculty members,

She was an amazing high school teacher. Her and I didn’t always get along at times but she helped me so much, and we became great friends. One day in particular she helped me with pain with her white magic! She was such a great teacher and a leader. Condolences to family and friends.
