Jane Woodbridge Sieverts ’55

Jane, whose professional career took her into editing and publishing, bookselling, and nursing, died July 23, 2019.

A lifelong reader with wide-ranging interests, including history, archeology, and geology, Jane earned a degree in history from Swarthmore and in nursing from American University. Writes daughter Lisa: “She was known for her unending intellectual curiosities, her Christmas cookies, her passion for dance, music, theater, and the arts, her devotion to her family, and the joy she took in being a grandmother. … She drew added enjoyment from her travels, as they went in tandem with her intellectual passions, visiting the cave paintings in Lascoux, archaeological digs in Italy and France, and the Vasa ship in Stockholm, Sweden.”
