She was born December 2, 1929 to William and Catherine Lorentz in Staples, Minnesota. Mary Jane attended school in Staples and graduated in 1947.

Mary Jane will be deeply missed by her sons: Steven Volesky of Roseville, William (Amber) Volesky of Midland, MI, Jerome (Carol) Volesky of Battle Creek, MI, Bernie (Susanne) Volesky of Bethel; grandchildren: Kevin, Paul, Mary, and John. great grandchildren.
Mary Jane is preceded in death by her parents; husband, Francis; and sister, Loretta Lorentz; and brother, Bob Lorentz.
