Jane C. Byerly Eck, 97, of Muncy, died Thursday, March 18, 2021 at Heritage Springs Memory Care, Montoursville.
Born December 8, 1923 in Muncy, she was a daughter of the late Walter W. and Emily (Lose) Corson. She married Joseph R. Byerly and together they celebrated 39 years of marriage before his death in 1987. She married James W. Eck, who preceded her in death in 2002.
Jane was a graduate of Muncy High School. She graduated from the former Dickinson College, now Lycoming College, Williamsport. Jane received her degree in nursing from Temple University where she was a member of the United States Cadet Nurse Corps. She worked for a short time at the Muncy Valley Hospital prior to taking the position of industrial nurse at the former Sprout-Waldron, now Andritz, where she worked for over 30 years and was a member of the Quarter Century Club.
She enjoyed making dinner reservations, afghans and dish cloths. While living in Florida, she was fond of playing golf. Most of all, she loved sitting on her front porch and visiting with family and friends.
