Jane Ann Fink, age 93 of New Richmond, died Wednesday June 10, 2020 at Amery Memory Care, in Amery WI. Jane was born on August 23, 1926 in Butte, Montana. She is the daughter of Harold and Blanche (Snowden) Hoyme. She graduated high school in Butte, Montana. Jane is mother to four children, Ted, Linda, Don and Debbie.
After moving from Montana, Jane worked in retail at Donaldson’s in Minneapolis. On February 26th, 1965 she married Edward Fink in Decorah, Iowa. Their marriage of fifty-four years was full of hard work and fun. They owned and operated motels in Baldwin and Prairie du Chien, as well as a liquor store in La Crescent, MN. They also lived in Balsam Lake for a number of years where Jane worked at Paradise Lodge as a waitress. Besides all the hard work, she loved to laugh and enjoy a good glass of wine. She was an amazing cook, the best pie maker, and loved to entertain her family. Most would say there wasn’t a jigsaw puzzle she couldn’t master. Jane and Ed loved to travel and stay in their RV in Hayward, and liked visiting area casinos and restaurants. She also loved her little Snickles, her Weiner dog who she shared every meal with.
Jane is survived by her children, Ted (Pat) Hansen of Balsam Lake, Linda (David) Hawkins of Roberts, Don Hansen of New Richmond, Debbie Monzel of Hudson, Grandchildren, Mark (Rachel) Hansen, Kim (Tim) Burlage, Heidi (Doug) Green, Aaron (Kelly) Moe, Jennifer (Adam) Brown, Emily Monzel and Adam Monzel; great grandchildren, Kylie, Chad, Ella, Jordan, Jackson, Dylan and Addyson.
