Jane Seely Stott

Our dear Mother, Grandmother, and Great Grandmother Jane Seely Stott passed away Tuesday January 2, 2007 at the home of her daughter Erroleen Stott Scholzen in Hurricane, Utah. Jane was 88 years old. She was born July 7, 1918 in Mt Emmons, Duchesne, Utah to Joseph and Florence Amelia Shiner Seely. At the age of three the family moved to Spring Canyon, Carbon County, Utah where her father worked in the coalmines. She lived in Spring Canyon until she was 15, attending Carbon high school. The family then moved to Green River, Utah. She graduated from Green River High School while working many jobs to help herself and her family, as times were hard during the great depression. In 1937 she began working as a switchboard operator for Mountain States Telephone & Telegraph Company. In 1940 she became the contract manager, a job she loved. She held this position until 1946 when she married. Jane married Errol J Stott January 18, 1946. She and Errol were married 3 weeks after he returned from serving 5 years in the Army during World War II. They were blessed with 3 children Erroleen (Nick) Scholzen, Joe (Ruth Kenney) Stott, and Kathleen (Brian) Stucki.

In 1958 Jane became the city treasurer for the city of Green River serving 25 years. In 1961 she also began working as a weather observer for the U.S. Weather Bureau, a job she held for 10 years helping to send her children to college. Because of the depression she was not able to go on to college, but was determined that her children would have that privilege.

Jane was the first board member of the Green River Library beginning in 1945. She was a member of the Green River Woman’s Club and served in many capacities in the LDS church such as primary, Young Women’s president, and Relief Society Presidency and teacher.

Jane had a beautiful singing voice and shared it many times for various events. She is survived by her 3 children, Erroleen, Joe, and Kathleen, brothers Bob Seely and Richard Seely. She was preceded in death by her husband Errol and grandson Danny Scholzen, her parents and siblings Vione, Beulah Bohleen, Hawley Seely and Bill Seely.

Services will be held Saturday January 6, 2007 at 1 P.M. in the Green River LDS chapel. Friends and family may call one hour prior to services at the chapel. Interment will be in the Elgin Cemetery under the direction of Heideman Mortuary.
