Jane has been with VT for 15 years, reporting on events in France. In France, VT is ‘presse’ and covers theatre and cultural events.
Jane refused vaccination despite endless talks from Carol about this and other health subjects.
Jane, a former beverage executive, moved to Paris with her mother some 30 years ago. She has worked with Gordon and Carol for twenty plus years as part of a Luxembourg based beverage branding company and on projects in Africa.
Jane has friends across VT.
Jane spent much of the last two years in one surgery after another for intestinal issues.
The call came early this morning from Gennady Sevastyanov, our Paris based photographer. VT lost Peter Panayotou in Paris some 5 years ago…dead from slow poisoning that failed to kill Duff, Hanke and Ellis.
Jane will be missed as a friend, certainly by Gordon and Carol…Jane’s last remaining family…but by so many others at VT….Shrimpton….Khrushchev…Husseini.
She was a gentle soul…a person of infinite decency.
