Jane Borsmann Dilks


Jane Borsmann Dilks passed on September 10, she leaves behind her devoted husband Albert Dilks. "Jane and Al" were a unit, they celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary this past summer, when you thought of one your thought of the other. Albert misses his wife having hoped for another 25 years of companionship and adventures.In retirement Jane and Al traveled all over Europe. Despite a fear of heights Jane climbed to the top of the Eiffel Tower on more than one occasion, she loved to wander the galleries and museums, and people watch in the cafes. Florence was another favorite city, where she loved to watch the mimes in the plaza while sitting at a cafes with a good glass of wine and her favorite traveling companion Al and the guidance of R Steves.Prior to moving to Cary, Jane had lived in New Jersey for most of her life where she worked as an Elementary School teacher, considered the choice teacher to have for your Kindergartner you knew you were getting devotion and attention to your child’s needs. Kids knew they were special when they got a chocolate kiss and a note of encouragement, managing to send them home for every child during the year.Having loved travel all of her life early on she stayed domestic. She accompanied her family on many a road trip and camping, Jane would have preferred to have the comfort of a hotel, but went along for trips to the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Yellowstone, Arches, and across the rest of the United States, never wanting to be far from Al. Jane loved the NJ shore, a B & B in Avon with a good book and walks on the shore was a favorite way to spend a long weekend.Jane will be missed having made so many strong connections in both Cary and her home of NJ.A Celebration of Life will be held at 2:00 pm Saturday, September 14, 2019 at Kirk of Kildaire Presbyterian Church in Cary, NC.
