Ema Jane Lynn, lovingly known to many as Miss Jane left her worldly home on Wednesday, May 12, 2021 surrounded by her family. Jane was born September 21, 1938 in Yantis, TX to Maynard & Louis Gilbreath. She graduated from Yantis High School in 1956. After graduating she moved to Tyler to attend school that is where she met the love of her life William “Hugh” Lynn. Jane & Hugh married on January 30, 1959. They settled in White Oak to raise their growing family. Jane spent the majority of her years pursuing her true passion of caring for children as owner & operator of The Mulberry Bush Daycare Center, after retiring she continued that calling by working for Gladewater ISD as an aide for the children at Truman W. Smith Hospital and then working at Kilgore First Baptist Child Development Center where she rocked and loved the infants. Jane was known for her amazing cooking and her hospitality that she extended to all she encountered. Her kind spirit could be seen the moment you meet her. She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. Her family was the center of her world and she found great joy in spending time with them. She enjoyed cooking, gardening, sewing, embroidery and word puzzles.
