Jane S. Lyons, 85, of Burlington died peacefully on Sunday, July 2, 2017 at the Converse Home in Burlington, a place she called home for the past 6 years. Jane was born in Brooklyn, NY on April 13, 1932 the daughter of James L. and Anna Mae (Delaney) Smith. She grew up in Poughkeepsie, NY and in 1953 she was married to George E. Lyons. She moved with her husband to the Burlington area in 1957 when IBM opened their plant in Essex Jct. Jane was a very talented home decorator. Together with her husband, they would purchase homes, Jane would decorate them and they would sell them furnished. She also had an amazing ability to remember the entire lyrics to songs from the fifty's and sixty's. Even through the fog of Alzheimer's Disease, she surprised everyone with this remarkable talent. And as her disease progressed, her world and the people in it became more and more "Wonderful". Jane leaves no blood relatives but her family from the Converse Home will miss her very much. Her rosy disposition brightened the darkest of days. She also leaves several very dear friends. Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her sister Anna E. Smith. At her request, there will be no visiting hours. Following cremation, there will be a graveside service on Monday, July 10 at 1:00 pm in Lakeview Cemetery. Those who wish may make contributions in her memory to the Converse Home Activities Fund, 272 Church St., Burlington, VT 05401.
