She was the last of the original Traytsman family. Everyone knew her as Bubbie because she was everyone’s grandmother. Jane was the real McCoy. She probably knitted for the whole town of Waterford, Beautiful work. She volunteered at L&M and knitted for the pediatric unit. She also helped out at her nephew Hugie’s restaurant and had input into the famous Love Salad. She was strong, yet gentle to all. At Thanksgiving time we were blessed to have had her.
