Jane Emily Boone McKivison, 79, of Beech Creek passed away on Sunday, February 2, 2020 at U.P.M.C. Hospital, Williamsport. She was born in Lock Haven on November 6, 1940, a daughter of the late Kenneth L. and Dorothy Mae Mann Boone.

Jane was a 1958 graduate of Lock Haven High School and would be united in marriage to the love of her life, Robert G. McKivison at the Beech Creek Methodist Church on Feb. 14, 1964. She worked at Bobby Brooks and as a seamstress at Woolrich in Blanchard where she retired after 25 years of service. Along with her husband she was co- owner of Bobby's Place in Beech Creek as well as running her own cleaning buisness. Her cleaning buisness was a perfect fit  because she took so much pride in her own home and keeping it in perfect shape. It was evident that she was a very hard worker all of her life. She also enjoyed gardening and shopping, and trips to the beach as well as several countries.

Jane was known for her signature black hair and classy style. She always welcomed friends and family into her home anytime and enjoyed entertaining. She was a member of the Brethren In Christ Church, Marsh Creek, and the American Legion Ladies Auxillary, Beech Creek.

She is survived by her loving husband of almost 56 years,Robert G. McKivison of Beech Creek, her daughter, Deborah Lesser of Howard, two brothers, Ronald ( Elizabeth "Dimps" ) Boone, and Kenneth ( Dorothy "Jeannie") Boone all of Howard, and a sister, Linda ( Toby ) Kunes also of Howard. She was preceded by a sister Mona Lohr. Also surviving are two grandsons, Colby R. ( Beverly ) Bechdel of Beech Creek, and Cody ( Fiance' Cassandra Fullington ) Bechdel of State College, 2 great-grandchildren, Benjamin and Erika Bower of Beech Creek, a special cousin that was like a sister to her, Relda Williams, and many nieces and nephews. Jane's friend list is too many to list but know she cherished each and every one of you.
