Mrs. Mary Jane Cole, age 96, of Kennesaw, GA., passed away on Thursday, October 26, 2017. Mrs. Cole was born on December 8, 1920 in Boaz, Alabama, a daughter of the late Jacob Miller and Sarah Black Miller.
Mrs. Cole spent the first thirty five years of her life in Alabama, later making her way to Georgia to reside in the Cobb County area with her husband and family. Once moving to the Kennesaw area, Jane and her husband Lionell were faithful members of Piney Grove Baptist Church in Acworth for over twenty-five years, eventually moving their letter to Burnt Hickory Baptist Church in Kennesaw. Jane loved working in her flower garden, playing bing-bag toss at her assisted living Dogwood Forest, and cheering on her favorite sports teams. Her life was dedicated to first and foremost her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, but more than anything else, her family. Jane was a wonderful wife to her late husband and an outstanding mother to her six children. She will certainly be missed by all who knew and loved her.
Along with her parents, Jane is preceded in death by her husband, Lionell Cole; five siblings, Jay Miller, Bill Miller, Monroe Miller, Ida Fields, and Ora Wells; and one son-in-law, Loyd Wehunt.
She is survived by her six children, Jesse (Sandra) Cole of Acworth, Don (Pat) Cole of Kennesaw, Rebecca (Gene) Johnston of Stone Mountain, Shelia Wehunt, and Bob (Renee) Cole of Heflin, AL., and Tim (Sharon) Cole of Dahlonega, GA.; eleven grandchildren, twenty-three great grandchildren, and five great-great grandchildren; several nieces, nephews, extended family members and friends also survive.
