The Officers and Members of the East Whiteland Township Fire Association wish to pass along our condolences to Deputy Chief Chris Strauss and his family on the passing of his mother, Jane Strauss. Jane was also a member of the Association, serving as an EMT and later as an EMS Lieutenant.

JANE H STRAUSS, died at home in Faber, Nelson County, Virginia on September 2, 2020. She was born in Washington, DC August 21, 1935 to Fred and Dorothy Gould Hillig; predeceased by her brother Dr. Bernard J. Hillig. She is survived by her spouse Charles A. "Chuck" Strauss, and their three sons Charles, Jr, (Heidi), Christopher Andrew (Penny), and Matthew Walter (Vicki). Grandchildren are Rebekah Strauss, Christopher Strauss, Jr, Phillip Strauss, Jamie Strauss, Elizabeth Strauss, Caleb Strauss, and many nieces and nephews.

A most colorful and complete person, Jane had many facets of her life career. In addition to her family of three sons, her accomplishments include her music and liturgy careers, plus her numbers of years as an active emergency medical technician.
In Chester County both Jane and Chuck volunteered with the local fire association—Jane as an EMT and Lieutenant of the Ambulance Corps, the East Whiteland Township, PA volunteer fire company. She earned status as an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) for that company plus the volunteer fire company in nearby Malvern, PA—eventually becoming an instructor for the Chester County, PA Emergency Medical Services.

Moving to Edenton, NC in 1990, they became immersed in Coastal Carolina Culture and Arts, with Jane continuing as an EMT for the Edenton-Chowan Rescue Squad. They also were involved in Edenton's Little Theatre, with Jane producing, directing and acting in several plays.

Memorial contributions may be made in Jane's name to the Nelson County Memorial Library, PO Box 321, Lovingston, VA 22949; Daylesford Abbey, 220 South Valley Road, Paoli, PA 19301; Church of the Incarnation, 1465 Incarnation Drive, Charlottesville, VA 22901; Hospice of the Piedmont, 675 Peter Jefferson Parkway, Charlottesville, VA 22911

Celebrations of Ms. Jane's life will be announced and held at a later date.
