Jane Rafferty Mueller died Friday, Nov. 3, 2017 at home with her family. She lived in New Orleans, LA and Poplarville, MS.

Jane was born Nov. 11, 1933 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She worked as an editor in New York City before marrying Karl. She continued to freelance edit after they moved to New Orleans in 1971.

She loved her family and once said that the happiest time of her life was as a mother. She enjoyed books of all kinds, music - listening, playing and singing, reading the New Yorker, traveling to Ireland and following and discussing the news, even in her final weeks.

Family members include her husband Karl-Gerhard Mueller, two daughters, Anne Mueller, Eve Mueller and her husband Jamie Zirkle; three grandchildren, Max Mueller Mills, Effi Zirkle and Conrad Zirkle; and many close friends.

She was known to her family and friends as one of the wisest, most intelligent, kindest, and wittiest people they knew. Pax vobiscum, our dear Jane.

Funeral services will be private. The family will receive visitors Saturday, Nov. 11, on what would have been her 84th birthday, at 2216 Nashville Avenue anytime between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.
