Jane had a love for history, literature and enjoyed reading a good mystery. She was an avid researcher of family genealogy and her family will be forever grateful for the hours she spent poring over courthouse and library records to compile information about their ancestors. She and Jim traveled extensively and on many occasions trips were routed to mix family research with pleasure. Jane maintained her association with the Daughters of the American Revolution for over 74 years and was also a member of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas.
She is survived by her four sons, Jim (and Anne) Makins, of Dallas, Michael (and Vicky) Makins, of Lancaster, Pa., Dr. Patrick (and Suzy) Makins, of San Angelo, and Dr. Scott Makins, of Bryan; grandchildren Daniel (and Claire) Makins, of San Angelo, Jennifer Makins, of Forney, Sarah (and Chris) McAlister, of Corpus Christi, and Elizabeth (and Lewis) McKnight, of Dallas; great-grandchildren, Hallie, Cal, Ty and James; sisters-in-law, Virginia Hopkins, Ruth Makins, Nancy Townes and Zada Makins; brother-in-law, Bill Makins; and several nieces and nephews.
Mrs. Makins was preceded in death by her husband; parents; brothers, Clarence Hopkins and Judge Harry Hopkins; and daughter-in-law, Mary Makins.
The family wishes to thank Dr. Carrie Carter and caregivers Dorothy Lee and Justina Bober for their devoted service to Jane over the last several years. They also express gratitude to the staffs of Caruth Haven Court and Faith Presbyterian Hospice.
The family requests memorial donations be made to the charity of your choice.
