I had the privilege to meet Mary Jane and her Hubby when they came to Woodland Haus assistant living. I got to take care if them. I will always remember her yelling ROLL TIDE BABY!! She loved her Alabama football. She also loved my grandson and wld play cars with him. And he loved her. She was his Granny MJ❤ She was one of a kind. And I loved her as well. She will be missed dearly. I'm so sorry for your family's loss of a very special loved one.

Wishing to express condolences to family and friends of the loss of a very special woman, Mary Jane Austin. She seemed like a second Mother to me at times growing up in Anderson with her son Gary Austin being my best friend for many of my formative years. She held a special place in my heart. We will all miss her.
