Newport, NH: Jane M. O'Clair, 86, passed away on August 16, 2023 at Valley Regional Hospital after a sudden illness.

Jane was born in Newport to Earl and Blanche (Farewell) Gould on June 27, 1937. She lived in Newport all her life. She met Philip O'Clair here, and married him July 30, 1955. They shared 37 happy years together before he sadly passed in 1992.

She worked in various shoe shops around town, then at Sturm-Ruger for 29 years before retiring in 2002.

Jane loved her lawn and her garden. She took immaculate care of her lawn and home up until her illness a few weeks prior. She snow-blowed her driveway in winter, and swept it clean in the summer. She loved spending time with her dog, Tucker.

She was predeceased by her parents, her brothers Kenny and Donald Gould, and her sisters Marjorie Wilcox and Earlene Dowlin.
