Jane Rose (Moote) Porter

July 6, 1947 ~ February 12, 2022 (age 74)


Jane Rose Porter (Moote), 74, of Newport, NH, passed away peacefully, on February 12, 2022. She
passed away at home, surrounded by her loving family, after a courageous battle with cancer.
Jane was born on July 6, 1947, in Proctorsville, VT to Charles and Rose (Dashner) Moote. She spent most
her younger life between VT and NH. She was blessed with four beautiful daughters early on and
worked hard in the following years to provide for her family. She would go on to meet her soulmate,
Roger, in 1973 before settling in Newport. They would eventually welcome one more daughter and
continue to spend nearly 50 years together.

Jane worked for many years and eventually retired from Osram Sylvania in Hillsborough, NH where she
made many close friends. In most recent years she worked as a caregiver for her dear friend, Beverly. A
cherished friendship with years of memories. She enjoyed crafting in her spare time and watching
shows with Roger. Jane’s happiest days were spent with her grandchildren, spoiling them, and making
memories. Jane was a light for many people throughout her life and continued to have such an impact
on those around her as her faith in God, strength, and positivity never wavered throughout her battle.

Jane is predeceased by her husband, Roger Porter; her daughter, Tonya Brown; her parents Charles and
Rose (Dashner) Moote; brothers George, Mike, and Bob; and sister, Shirley.

She is survived by her daughters, Hayley Pavlick of Florida; Alyson LaFrance and her fiancé’ Norm
Carlson of Warner; Nadeen Wentzell (LaFrance) and her husband Dean Wentzell of Newport; Priscilla
Osgood (Porter) and her husband John Osgood of Kentucky. Her sisters; Delphia Moscartolo of NM,

and Chandler Wentzell, Kyle, Michael, Jason, and Pyper Osgood. Great grandchildren, Brycen Flewelling
