Jayne Bennett, 87, passed into the loving arms of her Savior, August 17, 2020, while in hospice care at Glen Oaks Health Campus, New Castle, IN.
Jayne was born June 10, 1933 in Hagerstown, IN, the daughter of Maurice and Emma Bookout. She lived there contentedly for 85 years, recently becoming a resident of Raintree Square, New Castle, IN.
A graduate of Hagerstown High School and Indiana Central Business College, she was a secretary at Perfect Circle, and co-owned/operated Bennett’s Dept. Store with her husband Fred Bennett.
She was a life-long member of Hagerstown First United Methodist Church, active in the United Methodist Women, and a powerful prayer warrior. Heaven only knows what a wonderful and eternal impact all her many years of praying have had on her family, friends, and community.
The love and power of the Holy Spirit that flowed through her was undeniable, and engulfed anyone she met. Her faith was unshakable. Heaven has gained a beautiful angel.
